Proxima Terminal Adds Mobile Wallet and EMV/Smart Card Capability to Merchant Service

Carrollton, Texas (September 19, 2012) Ceres National recently unveiled their new line of payment processing terminals, under the brand name Proxima.

“The Proxima has everything a merchant needs for today and tomorrow,” says Mike Hutchison, Senior Vice President of Sales. “It’s able to handle credit and debit cards, EBT, gift cards and checks, when combined with one of our check readers. And Proxima is ready for the future of payment processing, with the ability to handle mobile payments, contactless and EMV smart cards.”

Currently, there are two Proxima models available—the Proxima X5 and X2, with a wireless version due to be released later this year. The Proxima X5 sports a vivid, full-color screen, and both models have a large, easy to read backlit keypad, which is useful in low-light environments.,. In addition, the Proxima X5 is equipped to handle mobile payments, contactless payments and EMV smart cards.

Both versions have the latest security technology, protecting the financial data of the merchant as well as the customer. The terminal is password protected for the administrator, making it safer in a multi-user environment by limiting voids or returns by unauthorized individuals. Receipts are customizable, and the terminals work on either a dial-up or Ethernet connection.
