PNC Launches New Card Readers

Joining a league of banks and private companies offering credit card readers, PNC Bank has introduced two new products customized to the demands of its customers.

PNC is offering the Pogo card reader for free. The app for the reader can be downloaded from the iTunes or Google Play store.
