    Abstract: A payment terminal includes a magnetic card reader slot having a magnetic head, an IC card reader slot configured to be front of a user, and a first board with a touch area for a contactless payment arranged diagonally upward toward the user. The magnetic card reader slot is arranged toward the user obliquely upward with respect to a direction parallel to the plane. The magnetic card reader slot and the IC card reader slot are arranged, so that a swipe direction of the magnetic card into the magnetic card reader slot and an insertion direction of an IC card into the IC card reader slot are substantially perpendicular to each other. The magnetic card reader slot, the IC card reader slot, and the first board are arranged in this order from the plane in a height direction.
