Implement A Failover Router To Minimize Transaction Downtime
Use a Pepwave Router and Your Cell Phone Provider to Process Cards When Your Internet is Down
You have probably been there before. It’s the middle of a rush, and all of a sudden your internet goes out. Now your credit cards do not work. You are either taking credit cards in offline mode or not taking cards at all. Time to bring out the knuckle buster right? Even better now you are manually writing down customers credit card information in hopes the transaction goes through when your internet is back up. Luckily, there is a good solution to prevent this from happening. By implementing a failover router, like a Pepwave, and a 3G/4G modem you will be able to avoid this pain. When your internet goes out the router will automatically and seamlessly switch over to your cellular device. This will allow any device plugged into this router to accept credit cards with out any downtime. Since every credit card transaction is proceed in real time, you will know if a credit card is declined. Your employees will not even notice this happen, so there is no extra training and hassle for your staff. This small investment is a lifesaver and is recommended for any merchant utilizing credit cards.
