- Arthur C. Clark

It is clear technology has brought us a long way from the payments industry's early days of manual "knuckle busters" used to imprint credit card data on receipts at the POS.

If you're an early adopter who can't wait for each latest and greatest terminal upgrade or mobile payment scheme, you don't have anything to worry about.
