Are there any basic wireline POS terminals with an internal modem,
credit card swipe, and keypad that are less expensive than the Zon Jr
XL($135) and the Tranz 330 (~$250)? (without printers)

Please list terminals along with their prices.

Here you go!  This sounds perfect.  A Tranz 330 for $99.99.  I hope
this is inexpensive enough for you.  I didn't see anything that meets
your specifications for under a $100 really, but I can keep looking if
you'd like to try for something cheaper.

This website lists a refurbished Tranz 330 for a $159.00, so a $99.99
sounds like a good deal to me:

Please keep in mind that my previous answer regarding TCL only applies
on VeriFone products.  Other manufacturers use different languages,
though the abilities of other products would be the same as the
VeriFone products, I'm sure.

Also, in case you're edgy about purchasing refurbished products, I
would just like to state that I personally prefer to purchase such
products.  You get the same quality for a much cheaper price.

Thanks for the question and if you require more information, don't
hesitate to ask for clarification.  And if you find this answer
satisfactory, please feel free to rate it. Thank you!

Are there any other less expensive terminals besides the Tranz 330 or
the Zon Jr that will handle what I am looking for?

I doubt it, but I will do some further searching and get back to you.
$99.99 sounds pretty good to me.

I'm sorry, but I was unable to find any products that matched your
specifications for a lower price.  There were several lower priced
"MiniMag" scanners, but these did not include a keypad or screen. 
Here is the lowest priced one I found:

I would recommend going with the first store that offered the unit for

Thanks for the question and if you require more information, don't
hesitate to ask for clarification.  I'm sorry I wasn't able to find
anything less expensive for you.
