First Data™ FD55 Terminal

The Challenge

As new payment methods continue to emerge, customers want full flexibility, speedy transactions and protection from fraud when paying for purchases. Further, with limited counter space, merchants need a compact terminal that can handle everything—credit, debit, checks, electronic benefits transfer. Despite the complexities, cost-conscious merchants operating in this difficult economy are looking for affordable solutions to their point-of-sale needs.

The Solution

The First Data™ FD55 terminal is an economical pointof- sale terminal that enables merchants to accept virtually every payment option—PIN-secured* and signature debit, Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, Discover®, Diners Club International® and JCB®, plus EBT (electronic benefits transfer)*.

This space-saving device is compatible with many standard peripheral devices, including the FD-10 PIN pad, PP1000SE and PP1000SE with contactless capabilities. With the addition of optional equipment, the FD55 terminal can also accept paper or electronic checks.

The FD55 terminal has the latest fraud detection and prevention technologies built right in to keep your customers safe and your business compliant with industry guidelines.

Here’s How it Works

 If you choose to connect via your existing Broadband Internet service, our Datawire Secure Transport solution provides speed and security, and may even save you money over dial-up or other options. Optional dial backup is also supported in the event that Internet connectivity is temporarily unavailable (analog phone line required).

At a speed of 18 lines per second, the device’s built-in printer powers through text for fast checkouts. It’s built for jam-free operation, and it’s a snap to reload—just open the cover and drop in the standard-sized paper roll.

Installation is simple, taking just minutes per terminal. Operating the FD55 terminal is just as effortless, with intuitive buttons to guide you as customers offer different methods of payment. No matter what the lighting situation is in your workplace, the large, bright display makes the device easy to read.
