Mobile payment processing is coming to be a rule, and not an exception. As a business owner you must do your due diligence to ensure that you select a trusted mobile payment processor to ensure that your customer’s sensitive information is in good hands. The 4 tips below are provided by the mobile payments experts at PayAnywhere.
What Hardware Does It Require?
The great news is that most mobile payment processors are compatible with a smartphone or tablet that you may already own. In most cases you only need to invest in a mobile credit card reader.
Is It Easy To Use?
The system you select must be easy for you to use as the business owner, and easy for your customers to navigate at checkout. Also consider whether or not it comes with any reporting or inventory tools, and whether it integrates with your preexisting software—such as your accounting software.
What Are The Processing Fees?
Really read the fine print before signing on the dotted line. You want to ensure that you understand both the fees per transaction, as well as any other ongoing monthly charges.
What Are Their Security Protocols?
Inquire about the security measures the payment processor you are considering has in place—such as encryption and firewalls.
The answers to the above questions will help you in your selection process, and to make sure that your investment is one worth your time and money.
