Standard Elavon charge for a terminal replacement - 1st year $49, any time after that $199. Sometimes they may choose not to charge anything but nobody will promise you that.
Good luck,
Cristian.
With rentals it's always $49.00.

Yes, that is to cover shipping and whatever other costs, as terminals come with a 1 year warranty anyway.

I got a my Ingenico ICT250 and installed it. I had to call Elavon to reprogram it to load up some configuration files as it kept wanting to dial out even though the internet cable was plugged in. What I didn't realize was that it didn't come with a pinpad so we have to pass the terminal to clients which isn't a huge deal, but it's just not as small as the pinpad unit. I called Elavon to see how much the pinpad was, and I believe it's on sale for $370 until the end of June. Afterwards it goes up to $470. I think I'll pass on buying the pinpad and see if they start phasing this unit out like gamechanger mentioned. Maybe I'll look into getting it later on in the future with a new unit.

Gosh darn it - I just realized that my Ingenico 5100 rolls don't quite fit into the Ingenico ICT250. Ugh! Talk about a pain. I have a small stockpile of 5100 rolls sitting in a box. Now we have to transfer about 1/4 of an inch from a new roll to the old plastic core before it will fit as the new machine is just a little slimmer where the roll fits in.

Haha, that happened to me when I switched my machine too. What a pain!
