We offer you mobile, wireless and better solutions, such as:

  • GPRS connectivity (Airtel or Vodacom network; an arrangement can be made for backup connectivity)
  • Energy storage of 3-5 hours
  • Large memory capacity
  • EMV 4.0 certificate with a chip facility

  • Large backlit LCD display for optimum viewing
  • Portable design (mobile and wireless)

We can offer you several machines, depending on your volume of transactions. Additionally, we can provide you with one machine that accepts both currencies.

We will provide you with a POS machine and training at no cost

NBC will provide you with the POS machine(s) at no cost. We will also cover the monthly cost for connectivity. After POS deployment, NBC will provide adequate training on operation of the machine and fraud control for your staff. Subsequent training will also be conducted by NBC in-line with industry updates and requirements.


We will charge you a relatively low commission of 2.5% for all transactions, but the rate is negotiable when the volume of transactions grow to a significant amount.

Payment and settlement

Our intention is always to settle payments as quickly as possible. Short turnaround time (TAT) is our standard and we consistently strive to maintain it.

Chargeback and dispute handling

Chargeback is a dispute where the cardholder queries a transaction. We will handle chargebacks properly to ensure a fair resolution is reached as quickly as possible.

Customer support

We maintain 24-hour merchant support through the NBC Contact Centre. Get technical support as well as voice authorisation around the clock. If a malfunctioning machine cannot be restored immediately, the matter will be logged to an engineer and the terminal will be replaced. Our intention is to provide you with the most reliable merchant service available.
