Pay-at-the-Table

Pay-at-the-Table

You carefully monitor the quality of your food and service, so don’t you also want control over the finishing touches on the meal — including the checkout experience? The most secure transaction, and the one that gives your customer the most peace of mind, involves the credit card never leaving the guests’ sight. Security, speed and efficiency are imperative to complete your guests’ enjoyment of their meal. 

Pay-at-the-Table is ideal for full service restaurants, stadiums, venues and other hospitality environments where payment is currently processed at a central location, far from the customer’s view. Servers need to accept payment tableside or curbside and print receipts right on the spot without the need to return to the point of sale (POS) station to swipe, insert or tap a card for payment.
