Before purchasing your counterfeit detector, ask yourself four short questions. First, ask yourself what type of payments does your business take? Do you have a business that accepts only cash and keep very little cash in the cash drawer. Is your business large enough to process a variety of checks, credit cards and other types of monetary statements? Does your business have only one or two checkout lanes that are easy to keep tabs on, or are there so many checkout lanes that there are security guards at several points in the store and counterfeit detectors in several areas to check every transaction. What if your business sells items such as cigarettes, alcohol, or tobacco that needs to be controlled? Not only does your business need to make sure the form of payment is true and honest, but drivers licenses need to portray a proper picture and age of the person making the purchase.
