Online payment applications for smart phones are revolutionizing for a ton of small businesses. You no longer need a specific handheld device, or even a merchant account, to process credit cards. All you need is a smart phone or tablet, a card reader and an application. Many businesses, as well as individuals, have implemented mobile payment processing.

When you sign up for Square which is considered to be one of the top mobile payment processing solutions, you get a card reader for free. It connects into the audio input of your mobile device, and it allows you to process credit and debit cards. After a payment, funds appear in your bank account within two days. You can create customized buttons for every item in your inventory, making bill payments much quicker. And Square’s analytics and reporting give you a comprehensive picture of sales volume over time, by time of day, and more. You also have the option to download your transaction histories.

Credit Card Payment Processing Options

There are many credit card payment processing solutions, for example Square and PayPal, that offer merchants many different pricing plans that range from flat monthly rates to a small percentage rate on every transaction made. Cynthia Randall, who manages Cyndi’s Cab Co., said she signed up with Square but her smart phone was not able to use the application. She said that the card readers are quickly becoming popular with local cab drivers.

In the taxi industry, Randall said, it is important to give riders the option of paying with a card. She remembered having to turn down potential customers because they did not have a payment processing solution. “There are certain areas like the Augusta Regional Airport that you can’t work unless you do accept credit cards,” she said. “Also during the Masters Golf Tournament, there’s a lot of people that their only means of paying is with a credit card.”

Want a Square Online Merchant Account?

I frequent a lot of business net working events and start up conferences all over the city of Los Angeles. Whenever I introduce myself and my company NDMS, I am frequently asked the question “Oh you mean like Square?” I answer yes, but it's not really true. There are some big differences between a merchant account and Square and I will go over these differences here.

A Square online merchant account is a very simple to use, out of the box solution to get you up and running very quickly. It is a perfect fit for part time business owners, market sellers or any business doing under two-thousand dollars worth of credit card transactions. I refer many of my potential customers to Square when they are first starting out to find out what their credit card volume is going to be.

Square Credit Card Processing Made Easy

Inexpensive cashless payment solutions are starting to be more common in private practice. It is no longer the case that costly specialist hardware to process plastic card payments is required in a seminar or when you are out paying a visit with customers. Here we will discuss one of the more common cell phone credit card readers.

Square credit card processing enables you to process payments straight through your iPhone, iPad or Android device. Registering for the service warrants you a cell phone credit card reader for free, after which you are provided the choice to pay either three percent per sale or a flat monthly payment of two-hundred and seventy-five dollars, without any other charges. The reason for a sale system is that it is mobile as well as encrypted each time you run the card, and the free Square Register application connects you straight to your bank account, with deposits made in one to two days after the payment.

Square offers a new addition to your Square payment processing account by announcing what the company refers to as the most requested option by its sellers, that being user permissions. This entails that business owners will be able to enable their employees to use Square devices to take payments with out the need to provide staff members with access to the same delicate info that may be seen by the business owner.

Up until recently, a business owner who wanted to setup their staff to also take Square payments on behalf of their business would actually be required to send over their login name and pass code .The very same login and pass code that enables them to sign in and access the details of their account. To get access to this new feature, managers and business owners can go log in to their account and open their Business Settings and send invites to their employees, up to fifty invitations can be sent. These staff members are then able setup their own Square card reader account login so they will then be able to take payments on behalf of the business. All of these payments will then be deposited straight into the business bank account.

Why a Mobile Credit Card Processing Service can Benefit You

A mobile credit card processing service may seem pricey but they can often increase value with options such as an inventory system, where you are able to store prices and descriptions of the products you are selling. Many even provide a full point of sale system, which gives you the ability to attach cash drawers and receipt printers.

We reviewed four mobile merchant account credit card solutions, along with their respective card readers and software. Each supplies an application for iOS devices (iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch) as well as Android phones and tablets (however, one provider has their Android software as a beta). Only a single service currently supports BlackBerry devices.

Processing credit card payments can be critical to your business, but the associated fees can be a damper on profitability. PayAnywhere’s pay as you go fee of 2.69% per swipe is the most affordable of the 4 services we looked at, while Intuit's GoPayment and VeriFone's SAIL tie for second with fees of 2.7% per sale. Square’s 2.75% fee is the highest of the bunch.
