7 Coolest features of the PAX A920 smart payment terminal

The PAX A920 is the world’s first tablet mobile terminal. If you’re looking for a bridge between a traditional payment terminal and a complex POS system, you should give the PAX A920 some serious thought.

In fact, we absolutely LOVE this smart payment terminal. Here’s why. 

1. It’s ideal for so many different types of business and payment scenarios.  

Some payment terminals are great, but only in certain situations. For example, desktop terminals are reliable when you’re taking payments at the counter. But they aren't so great anywhere else. 

Some wireless terminals work great in the aisles or a few steps away from your store, but you can’t go anywhere further than that if you want to accept payments. 

The PAX A920 is especially awesome because of its built-in 2G, 3G, 4G, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi capabilities. That means you can use it: 

  • At the counter 
  • In the aisle 
  • At tables 
  • At curbside 
  • At fairs, conferences, and festivals 
  • At customers’ doors 
  • Just about everywhere, really 

And since it has so many use cases, it means that it’s the perfect smart payment terminal for a wide variety of businesses, including retail, restaurants, coffee shops, and food trucks. Going one step further, it’s also great for clinics and even contractors who go door to door. 

2. It has a 10-hour battery life. 

When you walk out of your store, you need to be able to rely on your credit card machine to work when you need to process transactions. There’s nothing more frustrating than having your payment terminal run out of battery in the middle of a festival or at the customer’s front door. 

That’s why so many business owners love the PAX A920. It has a 10-hour battery life, so you can rely on it for more than a full shift.  

3. There are so many built-in features. 

If you want a smart payment terminal that can do it all right out of the box, the PAX A920 is for you. It has a bunch of built-in features you’ll love, including: 

  • A high-speed build-in thermal printer (but you can also email receipts) 
  • A build-in scanner with a front-facing camera and a rear-facing camera to read barcodes 
  • A build-in EMV and NFC reader, so you can take a wide variety of payments, securely (and isn’t that what transactions are all about?) 

4. You can manage virtually everything from the terminal. 

Want to manage employees via the terminal? You can. The A920 allows you to manage employee shifts, time clocks, gratuities, and more.  

Want to manage customer data? You can. This is ideal for your loyalty program and marketing initiatives. 

Want to manage inventory on this mobile POS solution? You can do that too. It’s easy since you can just pick up the terminal and bring it to the back room to count inventory (because it's mobile). Since it’s a POS system, too, you can add thousands of items to your database 

You can even manage sales since the terminal offers real-time updates on sales activity by product and location.  

You can manage virtually everything from the terminal. At the end of the day, that means you’re managing your business better.  

5. It’s got apps. Lots of them. 

Just like the Apple Store and Android Play Store, the PAXSTORE is full of downloadable apps that’ll make your life easier. This is one of the biggest advantages of investing in a smart payment terminal. Essentially, these apps allow you to enhance and customize the functionality of your device to your company's needs.  

You can find marketing, analytics, business management, and customer loyalty apps in the PAXSTORE. The sky’s the limit when it comes to apps, really.  

6. You can accept all payment types with no limitations. 

In this day and age, business owners should consider their customers’ payment preferences and expectations. Not only are people paying with credit and debit, but they’re also paying with alternative payments now. Many customers love their digital wallets like Google Pay, Apple Pay, and Samsung Pay. Others love mobile payment apps like WeChat Pay and Alipay 

The PAX A920 allows you to accept all card and payment types, without restrictions, including: 

  • NFC contactless for mobile and wallet payments 
  • Electronic signature capture 
  • EMV chip 
  • Magnetic swipe 
  • QR code scan 

By enabling alternative payments, you’ll be able to meet your customers’ evolving payment needs, so you can increase conversions and boost customer loyalty.  

7. It just looks good 

An HD colour display.

A large 5-inch touchscreen. 

A neatly hidden thermal printer.

sleek, portable, and compact design.

The A920 smart payment terminal is elegantly designed, which is more than we can say for most credit card machines on the market today.  

The PAX A920 is a complete mobile tablet POS solution. If you’re considering upgrading your payment terminals, consider this device as a top contender.
