Our latest PDQ machines are changing the game when it comes to taking debit and credit card payments. Also known as card readers, or card machines, they’re fast, lightweight, and capable of adapting to your businesses needs.

What is a PDQ machine?

A PDQ machine is just another name for a card machine, card reader or chip and PIN machine. Essentially, they’re all the same product and they all provide merchants with the ability to accept debit, credit and contactless payments, (including Google, Apple and Samsung pay) from their customers.

PDQ is an acronym for ‘Process Data Quickly’. This was how card machines were first described in the UK when they were introduced, as this is essentially how they work.

If we thought that the data was processed quickly back then, the industry and consumers will be more than pleased with the rapid transaction speeds and technology that we have in 2021. 

The first PQD machines didn’t use chip and PIN technology – but rather the signature method, which made the process longer for the merchant and the customer. 

Advances in technology and the new PDQ machine.

Technology and security have advanced since the first PDQ card machines were introduced to the market. We’ve since ditched the outdated signature method for the new improved chip and PIN. 

And all Dojo card machines come with Europay, Mastercard and Visa (EMV) chip and PIN technology, as well as contactless and Apple, Samsung and Google Pay functionality.

High-end security for confidence to go cashless.

Whether paying for a scoop of ice cream or an engagement ring, with card payments becoming more and more effortless, most people are ditching cash and ATMs are even in decline.

But with more card payments comes the need for tighter security and vigilance against identity fraud and theft. That’s why we work with the Payments Card Industry to make card machines with point-to-point encryption (P2PE). P2PE is a type of encryption which codes customer’s card data making it pretty much useless for hackers. 

It’s also one of the things you’ll need for PCI compliance, so we’ve got that ticked off your list straight away.
