Card readers allow customers to access their bank accounts through ATM machines and allow consumers to make purchases using credit and debit cards. The card’s magnetic strip or microchip contains information including the cardholder’s name, account number, card expiration date, and card validation code. The card reader decodes this information, and it is transmitted to a payment processor. The payment processor then verifies that sufficient funds are available to complete the transaction, and the merchant completes the sale. Initial credit card payment devices communicate via PSTN or a dedicated line. However, it has been replaced with Internet, mobile communication network, and so on because of its high costs and slow operation.
