Payment Processing Company Tidal Commerce Launches All-In-One Smart Terminal And Simple Pricing Plan

Tidal Commerce provides a solution for any type of business, from large e-commerce sites, small restaurants, to corner stores.

Tidal Commerce, a merchant solutions company that focuses on helping small and medium sized businesses grow, today announces the launch of its innovative Smart Terminal. The all-in-one Tidal Smart Terminal is powered by Poynt, and provides merchants with an accessible and easy way to process payments for a quarter of the price of traditional POS systems. The company has also launched a new transparent pricing plan – with Tidal Commerce, merchants pay just $15 per month, as well as 1.99% and 25 cents per typical transaction.

“For many businesses, payment issues can cause unnecessary headaches. Tidal Commerce provides merchants with an easy-to-understand pricing structure and innovative Smart Terminal to make payment processing a lot more approachable” said Drew Sementa, CEO of Tidal Commerce. “Our intuitive solutions are not only cost-effective for growing businesses, but are designed to continue providing value as they scale.”

Tidal Commerce is one of the first to partner with Poynt to offer the Smart Terminal, which enables merchants to run their businesses more easily.The terminal features one screen for merchants and one for customers, a single slot for mag stripe and chip cards, an NFC reader for Apple Pay, as well as a built in printer and scanner. Merchants may also use it to offer paper or sms receipts to customers.

The Tidal Smart Terminal also comes with built in web and mobile management tools, as well as the choice to integrate 3rd party tools – like quickbooks, for example – to help add new products, view order history, or issue returns. And more, the Poynt HQ app enables merchants to monitor and manage transactions from their smartphones on the go, in real time. While regular POS systems can cost upward of $2000, the Tidal Smart Terminal cost just $499, and $479 during the launch promotion.

Payment solutions should be a top priority for a new business, however understanding complicated interchange fees – a fee paid by the merchant’s bank to the card holder’s bank – and contracts can sometimes be difficult. Tidal Commerce is committed to simple and transparent pricing, with no hidden fees, no setup fees, and no cancellation fees.

With Tidal Commerce, the total transaction amount is lower for the following payment types: Swiped Magstripe Cards, Swiped or Inserted Chip Cards, Contactless (NFC) Payments, Prepaid Gift Cards and Point-of-Sale API Swiped or Inserted Payments.

“While typical POS systems can be complicated and clunky, we truly believe the Tidal Smart Terminal will be the first you’ll love, and the last you’ll ever need. With a software advantage, a simple pricing plan with trust built in, our aim is to make working with Tidal as simple as possible.”
