Accept Credit Cards Using a Mobile Phone

Use a virtual terminal for secure, online information processing

iStock_000035375476_Small-landscapeTechnology has advanced to the point where you can now accept credit card swipes directly on your mobile phone.  This requires a very small piece of hardware that attaches to your phone and runs using an app that you download to your smartphone.  Accepting credit cards using your mobile phone is perfect for companies with service or sales employees out in the field who need to be able to accept credit card payments.  Accepting credit and debit cards in the field can decrease your accounts receivable by removing the need to extend “net” terms to customers who used to pay in 30 or 45 days upon receiving an invoice.  By offering more payment terms at the time of sale or service can drastically increase the amount of revenue you have in hand at any given time.  When you take into account the attrition percentage of customers who default on net payment terms, getting paid at the time of service or sale can mean better overall profitability.

Why is it necessary?

If you sell your products or services on the road, you know all too well that a majority of the public does not carry cash anymore, and sending them to the closest ATM can be cumbersome. Unfortunately, this can be a major roadblock to the success of your business; unless of course you find a solution that benefits your business as well as your customers.

Whether you’re a trade show exhibitor, an electrician, or a massage therapist, you want to provide your customers with an easy, secure way to pay for your products and services while on the go — and we don’t mean those heavy credit card machines of the past. We mean mobile credit card processing.
