PayAnywhere has announced its credit card reader for smartphones will be shipping to retailers across the country beginning this month.
The PayAnywhere credit card reader easily attaches to iPhones, iPads, Android smartphones and tablets, and BlackBerry smartphones. Designed to stay in place during use, the reader features a magnetic head approximately twice the length of competitors’ readers for improved reading of credit card mag stripes.
The PayAnywhere reader and service meet Payment Card Industry (PCI) certification standards and credit card data isn’t stored on the merchant’s smartphone, tablet or the PayAnywhere app. PayAnywhere employs the highest level of data encryption ensuring every transaction is protected so merchants’ customers can pay with confidence.
Used today by merchants ranging from billion dollar enterprises to the weekend neighborhood garage sale, PayAnywhere is the payment industry’s only enterprise-grade, no compromise mobile payment solution suited for any size merchant. Created by a company with two decades of providing credit card processing to merchants of all sizes, PayAnywhere’s mobile point of sale (POS) technology brings the transaction to the customer and helps merchants use their smartphones or tablets to boost sales and improve cash flow.
