The VX520 comes in contactless/NFC and non-contactless versions. Please select a specific model using the available configurations dropdown. The contactless version can work with NFC enabled phones and Apple Pay when setup with a processor that supports it. Not all processors support NFC or Apple Pay payments. If you are interested in accepting Apple Pay mobile payments, we are apple pay compatible. Please contact us for more information about accepting Apple Pay.
Check for compatibility! - The VX520 comes in several versions, and some part numbers are proprietary to specific processors. We strongly suggest you check with your processor to ensure this terminal is compatible. The models we offer are all non-locked, non-proprietary versions, while the Elavon specific model is proprietary to the Elavon processing platform.
The VX520 is the newest generation countertop terminal from VeriFone. It has a variety of processing configurations including dial, Ethernet, GPRS wireless and comes in NFC and Smart Card (EMV) compatible configurations. The VX520 is a compact and rugged terminal and depending on the configuration should meet the needs of current and future processing protocols for many years to come.
Please select the version of the VX 520 that you need in the dropdown box.
