Mobile Computer PD40 Payment Device

PD40 Application Photo

Retailers are racing to adopt mobile payment technology. Now you can reap the benefits of mobile payment in your enterprise with the PD40 from Zebra Technologies. With the PD40, associates can use their Zebra Technologies multi-function mobile computers to ring up purchases with virtually any type of payment card, anywhere in the store, improving the shopping experience and preventing abandoned sales. This solution includes our Payment-Ready Enterprise Mobility Developers Kit (EMDK), a powerful tool that takes the complexities out of developing payment applications. With the EMDK, you can create payment applications that can run on the Zebra mobile devices of today and tomorrow — and integrate just about any form of receipt delivery, from print to email and text.

Ground-breaking powerful Payment-Ready EMDK for fast application development and minimal coding
Our EMDK makes it easy to rapidly develop even the most complex mobile payment applications, while delivering an extremely low total cost of ownership and a fast return on investment. Hardware details are abstracted, greatly simplifying development time and cost. The result? The volume of code, opportunity for coding errors and debugging cycle times are all reduced.

Rock solid security
All compliance protocols for both of the key payment regulatory bodies — Payment Card Industry (PCI) and EMV — are integrated into the Payment Ready EMDK, along with additional layers of security for the Bluetooth connection and the overall payment transaction. Both the host mobile computer and the PD40 are continually mutually authenticated and each communication is individually secured, providing peace of mind for you and your customers.

Instant, easy pairing
Use the host mobile computer to scan the permanent barcode printed on the back of the PD40 to automatically and securely pair the two devices.

Take any type of payment, anywhere in the store
Your customers can use the card of their choice — magnetic stripe or Chip and PIN.

Protects host mobile device battery power
Since the PD40 has its own battery, the battery cycle times in the host mobile devices are not impacted, ensuring full-shift power for both devices.

Streamlined software development
The plug-in architecture of the Payment Ready EMDK enables simple and cost-effective migration of your application, giving you the flexibility to switch from today’s handheld mobile computers to next generation tablets and mobile computers. And since the Payment Ready EMDK is compatible with Zebra’s RhoMobile Suite, you can create one HTML5 payment application that can run on any operating system on any device, regardless of screen size or user interface orientation — portrait or landscape.
