Generally, customers prefer to make payments through a debit card or credit card. This makes it important for any business owner at a small, medium, or large scale to accept payments electronically from the customers for better sales volumes. SBI Merchant Acquiring Services are available across over 15000 branches in the country which provide SBI PoS services. SBI PoS (Point of Sale Terminal or PoS Terminal) is an Electronic Data Capture machine or a PIN pad at the outlet to make sales and transactions much simpler.
What is PoS?
