A credit card reader for your mobile phone can quickly and easily make your business mobile. With a swipe, you can accept credit card payments from anywhere that you are able to connect to the internet. Many businesses that had to rely on cash transactions are now using a phone credit card reader to take their business to the next level and start accepting credit cards.
Home based businesses like product parties (selling Tupperware, candles, clothes, handmade jewelry, and other items) are now benefiting from the convenience of being able to accept credit card payments, reducing the worry about how much cash their guests bring. Taxi drivers and other transportation providers (like Lyft, a transportation company similar to a taxi service) are also using mobile phone credit card processing to accept payments. Street vendors are also going mobile to increase profits and land those credit card carrying customers that they used to miss out on.
Additionally, vendors and businesses have found that their profits have increased at farmers markets, conventions, trade shows, and kiosks since they can now accept credit cards on a mobile phone or tablet. Sometimes you need to go where your customers are, but you need to be able to accept credit cards so that you don’t miss out on sales opportunities. Service professionals that provide services at their customers’ homes and businesses are also now able to accept payments on the spot, even when the customer doesn’t have cash.
Even retail businesses are using phone credit card readers at their location. Some are replacing traditional credit card readers with mobile credit card processing and others are using it to simply create more flexibility and equip their staff with the ability to take payments anywhere in the location. They can also use it to set up at kiosks or conventions and make sales off property. Everyone is going mobile.
iPhone credit card processing is easy to set up. Simply set up your merchant account, install an application on your phone, and attach the credit card swiper when you need to accept a payment. Accepting credit cards doesn’t get any easier than this. If you have an Android, no worries, it’s just as easy with a credit card reader for Android.
