Credit Card Terminal is a point of sale app that is very similar to its competitors such as Square and PayPal Here. Available on both iOS and Android platforms, this app does bring the flexibility that most business owners crave when looking to move into the mobile POS world. Unlike many of its competitors, Credit Card Terminal charges a modest $25 monthly fee on top of their pay-per-swipe credit card processing fees. The swipe fees will vary depending on what credit card you accept, but it is fairly priced for Visa which is the most common card you’ll see. Additionally, Credit Card Terminal offers the ability to accept payment from your Mac or PC laptop and desktop which makes it a little more versatile than some of its top competition.Description of Credit Card Terminal
Created by the company Inner Fence, this program is yet another flavor of POS in an ever-expanding realm of apps.

Overall, I would give my review of the Credit Card Terminal app a rating of 3 out of 5 stars. Functionally, this app offers you most of the great features you would expect from a POS system that runs on multiple platforms along with really great reporting features. However, the pricing structure for their service is a little steeper than most of their competition, which was a little hard to justify since they have essentially built an equivalent app. The additional fees may be worth it if someone wants to buy a USB credit card reader and use a laptop or desktop computer as their cash register instead of a smartphone or tablet, but I think most people would agree that the touchscreen route is the way of the future.
