Payment Data Systems (PYDS), has announced that its iRemotePay App is now available on the App StoreSM. The app has been developed for the iPhone, and is also compatible with the other apple products.
iRemotePay, when coupled with a compatible card reader and an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, enables a merchant to securely process credit cards, ACH payments (e-Checks) and cash over cellular or Wi-Fi networks from remote locations and view these payment transactions while away from the office. It operates as a true point-of-sale (POS) terminal.
iRemotePay is appropriate for large or small organizations, such as HVAC or plumbing services, or churches that have a need for wireless payment applications. It is also completely compatible with PDS’ market strategy which focuses on large enterprises with large customer bases and which have a need for remote payment processing applications on a full time basis or at special events
The provider is different in three ways. Firstly, it is targeted to merchants that have a need for one or multiple devices in their service market but also have a need for a common settlement account. Secondly, in addition to accepting all card types, iRemotePay will allow the entry and processing of ACH payments (e-Checks) and cash. Furthermore, it is processor independent which means iRemotePay can act as a gateway to the merchant’s existing merchant processor who may not be Payment Data.
iRemotePay is fully integrated with PDS’ back-office applications which provide real time access to view the completed transaction by the merchant’s accounting department or at the remote location by the person that entered the information. It is designed to be fully compliant with all current and future PCI security requirements with fully encrypted end-to-end transactions.
Michael Long, Payment Data Systems, Inc CEO said, “We are very excited to be at this point with the deployment of iRemotePay and its availability to merchants of all sizes. We believe the product defines for merchants a new wireless POS platform for the processing of payments wherever the merchant and their customers happen to come together.”
