Anyone who’s shopped at the Apple Store knows how wonderfully convenient it is for the customers and staff that the sales people can process your credit card right there in the middle of the store with a device attached to their iPhones. No lines, no hassle. Select what you want and even the receipt is emailed to you. No paper. No mess. Imagine that same convenience extended beyond the boundaries of a brick and mortar store and unlimited by type of phone.
Pay Anywhere gives you that flexibility and more. The card reader is smaller than the Apple Store’s and sleeker than Square’s and available for iPad, iPhone, Android and Blackberry. Getting started is a cinch. The folks at Pay Anywhere will set up your merchant account for you for free. You just pay 2.69% per swipe, a notch lower than the going rate at Square. Now you’re ready to accept credit cards right at the tables in your restaurant, or out front right next to cars at your carwash, or in the middle of a vacant lot at the local flea market. Literally anywhere. App features include commitment-free pay-as-you-go pricing; GPS; compatibility with cash drawers and thermal printers; text- and photo-based inventory; detailed receipt emails; built-in reporting of sales trends with “Heat Maps”; and a free merchant portal for detailed account activity – all directly within the app itself. No need to log into a remote Web site to get important sales data. It’s a feature-rich sales app that truly takes credit card processing on-the-go to a whole new, well, place, literally any place.
