Base stations will need to be plugged into a router for connectivity or a telephone line to dial out. Wireless signals get weaker the further away from the base station they are. If a base station is too far away from where the device is being used, then consideration will need to be given to moving this, so it is closer and in range.

The main benefit of using a wireless terminal is that the technology enables merchants to use the wired credit card machine anywhere in a range of up to 100m from their business. However, these distances may be affected by environmental conditions and the layout of the premises. The construction of the building, for example, may play a part in the strength of the signal. Building material such as concrete or steel can block signals.

If connecting by a phone line, then the wired card payment terminal needs to be located near to the phone line and not through extensions and preferably not through splitters. If the line is also being used for broadband then the line will need a broadband filter and the wired (corded) terminal will need to be plugged into the filter rather than directly into the socket. If this isn’t done, every time a payment is taken the broadband will become disconnected.closer and in range.
