EMV-Certified Payment Terminal

Assistance and Resources

Payment Terminal brings EMV-certified card readers to Blackbaud Merchant Services’ suite of card-present solutions. Payment Terminal readers provide the additional fraud prevention inherent to meeting EMV specifications, and also add the ability to take in-person payments using chip cards and contactless methods.

  • Protect your constituents and your organization from costly credit card fraud with EMV-certified card readers that offer End-to-end Encryption (E2EE).
  • Accept contactless payments by giving supporters the option to pay with their digital wallets.
  • Process payments more quickly  Payment Terminal transactions complete up to 3x faster than those processed through a magswipe device.
  • Conveniently reconcile Payment Terminal transactions with all other BBMS payments.
