A simple church giving kiosk allows for easy and secure giving on-site. You set up a simple church kiosk you need the following hardware:
A touchscreen all-in-one computer with Internet access. An all-in-one PC will take up less space, but any PC will work. The touchscreen functionality adds to the ease of use. If you don’t have a pc already Dell.com is a great place to start. Be sure to get a system with Windows Professional to take advantage of the kiosk friendly features.
Stand, Wall Mount, or Counter Top
A stand-alone unit can be relocated with ease and allows for greater accessibility. A table-top unit will require a surface for it to sit upon, but also provides space for the placement of belongs while giving. Displays2go.com is a great place for finding a stand for your kiosk.
Credit Card Reader (MSR)
A credit card reader also called a magnetic stripe reader will make it quick and easy for givers to give. They just swipe their debit card instead of typing in the long card number and expiration date. When choosing a credit card reader it is important to consider the number of times it will be used in one day. Some credit card readers are extremely delicate and are not meant to be used on a self-help kiosk. The free credit card readers that you get for use with iPads and mobile devices are not very durable. The Magtek Dynamag is a durable and secure credit card reader. You can attach it to an all-in-one computer or attach it to the counter. It will also increase the level of security.
