Processing Credit Cards on Your Cell Phone

It's unbelievable how many people are unaware that you can process credit cards on your smart hone.Mobile credit card applications are now available on the iPhone, iTouch, BlackBerry, Google Inc. Android and Microsoft Corp. Windows Mobile. Furthermore, while the service is obtained as a mobile download, it can be accessed through a Web portal on any computer, affording merchants a more encompassing view of reporting data than what's available on the tiny screen of a handheld phone. Merchants can also connect to the  gateway and conduct payments from desktop or laptop computers. The mobile application has a companion product in the MagTek Inc. encrypted card reader for merchants who want to conduct swipe transactions for even lower rates. For more information on accepting credit cards on your cell phone you can contact Prestige Merchant Services. This technology really affords people on the go, real affordable credit card processing options. Until recently you would have had to purchase a wireless card reader (cost-$499-$1200) and pay expensive wireless monthly fees ($15-20 a month) as well as set up fees ($20-50) or lease it ($60-100 a month plus wireless fees).
