How to Clean Your EFTPOS Terminal

If your EFTPOS terminal is dirty, it can cause problems during payment. Doing a quick clean of your EFTPOS terminal on a weekly or monthly basis, will help ensure your customer’s payment experience is at its best.

Here are some quick tips on keeping your terminal clean:

  • Dust off the keys and printer compartment with a micro-fibre cloth or fine paintbrush
  • Use a cleaning card to get into the card swipe and chip reader slots
  • Use a soft cloth and cleaning alcohol solution to clean the terminal surface, printer lid and keys
  • Keep cables and plugs tidy and free from dust and tangles. Keep your EFTPOS terminal away from potential liquid spills (if there are any spills, turn off the terminal and clean it as soon as you can to prevent any damage)
