What is KashBox?

KashBox is a PC-based alternative to traditional standalone credit card terminals. KashBox software can turn any PC with an internet connection and Microsoft® Windows® into a full-featured payment processing terminal, and a versatile receipt management system.

So it’s like a little grey box?

Sort of, but without the clutter. The “little grey box” credit card terminal you often see on office desks and retail counters really doesn’t do all that much. KashBox does everything dedicated terminals do, and a whole lot more—only faster, better, and cheaper! All of this without the extra box, wires, printer, and phone line.

Who should use KashBox?

Virtually any business or non-profit can use KashBox to process credit cards. KashBox is ideal for doctor’s offices, dentists, churches, service providers, retail stores, wholesale businesses, and almost anyone who currently accepts credit cards.

There’s no cost for the software and no cost to apply for a merchant account with Mercury Payment Systems. So even if you don’t currently accept credit cards but think your business would benefit from doing so, there’s no risk in finding out.
