First Data, a global leader in electronic commerce and payment processing services, announced today the introduction of two new point of sale (POS) terminals, the FD300 and the FD200.

Developed based on merchant feedback, these devices offer unique capabilities that expand First Data's proprietary terminal line. The FD300 is designed for operations that have more than one business at the same location, and the FD200 is an all-in-one device that supports multiple payment types.

The FD300 is ideal for professional businesses needing to keep track of sales from separate businesses housed at the same location such as a dentist or doctor office. Its multi-merchant capability allows the merchant to designate which business the sale is applied to at the time of purchase with one terminal.

Other features of the FD300 include a large, easy-to-use color touch screen display; fast downloads via IP with dial-up as back up; terminal/printer combination; future availability of built-in, full browser support; the ability to accept virtually all payment types; five USB ports to support a full range of peripherals; two RS232 serial ports and the option for Wi-Fi.

The FD200 is an all-in-one solution that supports merchants that frequently accept checks such as retailers and a multitude of other vertical industries. It virtually eliminates the need to use several devices to process different forms of payment. The FD200 offers multiple TeleCheck processing products including electronic check acceptance, which converts paper checks to electronic transactions at the POS.

Other features of the FD 200 include a single, integrated space-saving device with the ability to settle in the preferred payment type; enhanced check imaging technology; dual-CPUs, one for checks and one for all other services; dual-printers, inkjet to void checks and thermal to print receipts, which saves money on ink and paper.

"With the FD200 and FD300, we are able to further expand the features and functionality of our proprietary terminal line," said Russell Bird, senior vice president, First Data. "Still possessing many of the capabilities of the flagship FD100, each of these devices really serve our merchants in unique ways; the FD300 is perfect for operations that have multiple businesses at one location, and the FD200 can process multiple payment types including checks, all in one device."
