networkn:sbiddle:networkn: I can't imagine a supermarket using dialup for EftPOS
You'd be surpriced at the number of larg(er) retailers who use antequated systems. There are even adapters to convert existing dialup terminals to IP which are also very slow. These were quite common for a while.
Every non NFC terminal used for credit cards has to be replaced by mid 2014 anyway, so there will be a lot of upgrades occuring for retailers who didn't upgrade to NFC terminals last year when terminals under EMV 4.2 were culled.
I think I need to get into the EftPOS business :) This is like the 3rd mandatory upgrade in 5 years :)
It's only a mandatory upgrade for those who upgraded terminals last year and opted for non NFC terminals. If you upgraded to a EMV 6.0 compliant NFC capable terminal last year you'll be sweet for a number of years to come.
