VeriFone VX 520 Dual Comm

An Evolved Terminal for Next-Generation Payments

VX520 The dual-communication VeriFone® VX 520 includes everything you need in a stand-alone countertop device – speedy processing, expansive memory and flexible acceptance hardware. The advanced VX Evolution software platform relies on the familiar Verix operating system, eliminating retraining for staff. An integrated contactless reader allows your customers to tap and go, while a chip card reader slot is ready and waiting when your business accepts the EMV chip cards that customers will begin to carry in the coming years.

To help your payments acceptance evolve with the times, the terminal automatically updates with value-added features and enhancements, without requiring any action from an operator. The VX 520 also supports the VX 820 plug-in PIN pad to meet your needs.
