Retail Availability of Credit Card Readers on The Rise

If you’re a business or independent service provider in need of a mobile payments solution for customers, finding a a mobile credit card reader is almost as easy as finding a cup of coffee today.

A recent wave of reports shows that professional grade mobile point of sale solutions providers are establishing an impressive presence in the world of retail.

One of the fastest growing platforms is PayAnywhere, which confirmed last month that five new regional retailers are now offering the PayAnywhere mobile point of sale solution in stores.

The stores include Meijer’s, Fred Meyer’s, Hastings Entertainment, Brandsmart, and MicroCenter.

PayAnywhere says these leading regional retailers join major retail brands such as Walmart, The Home Depot, OfficeMax and Pep Boys in offering the PayAnywhere mobile credit card processing solution to their customers.

“Many business owners and professional contractors prefer to ‘shop locally’ when they can to support their regional retailers. The ability to purchase the PayAnywhere reader from these retailers is important to them,” says Scott Addyman, vice president of sales at PayAnywhere. “PayAnywhere is dedicated to serving all businesses, and working with regional retailers is further proof of our commitment to help everyone succeed.”
