VMS-Washington – FD-55 Credit Card Terminal

First Data has come out with a replacement for their FD-50ti with a new and improved FD-55 which is far better than the FD-50ti.  This is the easiest machine to program, work with and is very reliable for your business use.  Here’s some information on the new FD-55.

First Data™ FD55 Terminal

The Challenge
As new payment methods continue to emerge, customers want full flexibility, speedy transactions
and protection from fraud when paying for purchases. Further, with limited counter space, merchants 
need a compact terminal that can handle everything—credit, debit, gift cards, checks, electronic
benefits transfer and even loyalty programs. Despite the complexities, cost-conscious merchants
operating in this difficult economy are looking for affordable solutions to their point-of-sale needs.
The Solution
The First Data™ FD55 terminal is an economical point-of-sale terminal that enables merchants to
accept virtually every payment option—PIN-secured* and signature debit, Visa®, MasterCard®,
American Express®, Discover®, Diners Club International® and JCB®, plus EBT
(electronic benefits transfer)*, First Data gift and loyalty cards.This space-saving device is compatible
with many standard peripheral devices, including the FD-10 PIN pad, PP1000SE and PP1000SE with 
contactless capabilities. With the addition of optional equipment, the FD55 terminal can also accept paper
or electronic checks. The FD55 terminal has the latest fraud detection and prevention technologie
built right in to keep your customers safe and your business compliant with industry guidelines.  First
Data’s new TransArmor® solution offers a layer of protection previously unavailable anywhere
on the market. This innovation combines encryption with tokenization, which completely removes
card information from your environment so it cannot be used for fraud.

Here’s How it Works
If you choose to connect via your existing Broadband Internet service, our Datawire Secure Transport
solution provides speed and security, and may even save you money over dial-up or other options.
Optional dial backup is also supported in the event that Internet connectivity is temporarily unavailable
(analog phone line required). At a speed of 18 lines per second, the device’s built-in printer powers
through text for fast checkouts. It’s built for jam-free operation, and it’s a snap to reload—just open the
cover and drop in the standard-sized paper roll. Installation is simple, taking just minutes per terminal. 
Operating the FD55 terminal is just as effortless, with intuitive buttons to guide you as customers offer
different methods of payment. No matter what the lighting situation is in your workplace, the large, bright
display makes the device easy to read.
