What do I get with the PAX card terminal?

Designed for simplicity and portability, the PAX A50 payment terminal – with its clear, crisp, 4.5” full colour touchscreen, and sleek, slim styling – could easily be mistaken for a compact smartphone. And ‘smart’ is what it is, giving you the power to take card payments, contactless sales and issue refunds whether you’re in the centre of town or the middle of nowhere. Please note the PAX A50 only issues paperless receipts via email.

Wherever your business does business, the PAX A50's Wi-Fi, 4G and Bluetooth will have you covered. And with up to 8 hours of battery life, you’ll likely be flagging before the PAX A50 is. The compact card machine is also the most pocket friendly of Tyl’s payment devices.

The choice is yours on how to get your hands on our affordable PAX A50 - buy it outright for the one-off price of just £75.00+VAT and its yours forever, or hire it for a monthly cost of £6.99+VAT. Hiring is a great choice if you want to see what works best.

Please note: PAX A50 cannot currently be added to existing Tyl accounts. New customers only.
