TD Canada Trust is deploying a new high-speed, Internet-enabled POS terminal that can approve a credit or debit transaction and print a receipt in four seconds or less. The “Freedom III” terminal, produced by MIST, is an integrated POS terminal and thermal printer with a touch-screen, and a graphical user interface that merchants can use to authorize credit and debit card transactions, access on-line web banking services, store transactions and generate hourly and daily reports. The “Freedom III’ uses 128 bit SSL encryption for Internet transactions. The new terminal was officially launched yesterday in Toronto. To try out the new terminal, selected guests were given a CN$100 credit card to make purchases at a local skin care store with the products donated to a local charity. The terminal is also smart card ready.
