Card Payments Are Now Truly Mobile!
Mobility in the small business arena has become paramount to success. You must be able to serve your customers wherever they are. Wouldn’t it be great if you could take a card payment on your smartphone or tablet, without worrying about the transaction being secure, and have all of the support of a worldwide payments company? Imagine having the flexibility during tax season to take a payment from your clients anytime you meet with them. This is now a reality with one of the newest applications that combines a smartphone with a credit card reader and a free, downloadable application to serve as a “payments on the go” arm of your business’s payment needs.
An important factor to consider when selecting a mobile solution is that it be PCI compliant. Credit card data should be encrypted through all stages of the transaction, with no data information retained on the device. While consumers are becoming very comfortable with smartphones, they want to know their personal information is safe and secure.
Another important factor is the ability to capture contact data that allows you to expand and build your customer base. Having the ability to record the client’s contact details, an invoice or account number, and space for additional notes is useful for your reporting purposes and gives you the ability to keep in touch with your customers.
Using a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet to process credit card transactions is just another way for you to better serve your client face to face, in whatever environment they prefer.
