Why does my terminal display "Take Imprint of Card?"
This message displays on a terminal when a card number is manually key entered instead of being read from the magnetic stripe by swiping it in the card reader.
Using an imprinter to take a manual imprint of a card provides proof that the card was present at the time of sale. Merchants are often requested to provide an imprint of the card in the event of a chargeback dispute. Press Enter on the terminal to proceed to the next step.
If you have questions or require additional information, please submit a ticket and we will be in touch with you shortly.
