The First Data™ FD300 terminal is an ideal solution for operations that need to keep track of sales from separate businesses housed at the same location. Its multi-merchant capability allows the merchant to conveniently designate which business the sale is applied to at the time of purchase, all with one point-of-service terminal. The merchant still receives a single, easy-to-read statement, but each transaction is designated by the specific business.
The FD300 terminal accepts virtually all payment options, including Visa®, MasterCard®, Diners Club®, American Express® and Discover®Network cards. The large, intuitive, color touch-screen interface is easy to understand, reducing training time and user errors. Transactions take just seconds through the Internet Protocol (IP) connectivity, with dial-up as a backup. It provides outstanding performance, reliability and security for high-volume, multi-user merchants.

Here is how they are different.
The FD100ti uses less space. It is sleeker and more compact than the FD100.
FD100ti has 1.5 times the memory, and an updated CPU.
FD100ti’s latest software provides greater security than the FD100.
FD100ti WiFi version is available.
FD100 ti uses industry standard 2.25″ thermal paper. This can be found at most office supply stores.

The new FD100ti has a titanium color versus the FD100 standard gray color.

ROAMpay Questions What Happens if Cellphone Service is not Available? Can I Still Accept Credit Cards
A common question I receive is “what happens to my credit card transactions if I have no cell phone service?”
If you find yourself in a no cellphone zone you can still accept your customers credit cards. The transactions will be performed offline. All transactions taken offline will be stored safely and uploaded at a later time when the network is available.
When network service is not available , the login times out. The application stores the username and password and allows the user to conduct offline transactions. The screen text below is displayed alerting the user to the situation.
Login timed out
You may have little
or no connectivity
only offline trxs
will be allowed
Exit or Continue
If you find yourself offline, go ahead and enter the transaction information. Once there is an available network, all the offline sales will be submitted.
PAYware Mobile and ROAMpay Mobile are the most popular smartphone credit card processing applications in our office. A frequently asked questions is, “what is the difference between the two apps”? Here are the major differences between PAYware and ROAMpay.
PAYware Mobile has signature capture capabilities. ROAMpay Mobile does not. Customers signatures are captured directly on the iPhone screen using the stylus pen.
Limited Phone Compatibility
PAYware Mobile only works with the iPhone 3G or 3GS. ROAMpay is compatible with many different smartphones, Android, Droid, iPhone, iPhone 4, Blackberry, and HTC (just to name a few).
PAYware mobile has a tracking capability that allows users to geographically track sales. Mobile users can identify what locations are the most profitable.
Cash Order Function
ROAMpay allows users to enter cash orders into application. PAYware mobile does not. The cash order function can benefit those merchants looking to have all sales together on one application for receipts and reporting.
ROAMpay start-up is more cost effective than PAYware mobile, through PaymentMax. PaymentMax is offering the ROAMpay mobile swiper free with new, approved accounts. PAYware mobile card reader is $139.00 at the Apple store.
Start accepting credit cards on your smartphone today with a PaymentMax merchant account and ROAMpay. ROAMpay mobile is compatible with over 400 different cell phone models, including the popular iPhone 4, Droid X, Droid 2, and HTC Hero.

PAYware mobile has a really cool marketing feature available to its users, it is called Map Function. The map function is located in the transaction info screen and allows merchants to pin point exactly where their sales have been made.
The map function plots every transaction location with a pin needle. Once all transactions have been plotted the user gains a clear view of which locations are the busiest and the best for business. A great tool for on-the-go merchants, like food vendors, seeking hungry customers.
The map function can make print advertising more efficient and cost effective for businesses. The most profitable geographic areas are revealed eliminating wasted time and money on “dead” zones.
