PayAnywhere has announced five new regional retailers are now offering the PayAnywhere mobile point of sale solution in stores, including Meijer’s, Fred Meyer’s, Hastings Entertainment, Brandsmart, and MicroCenter. They join major retail brands such as Walmart.

Compatible with iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android smartphones and tablets, and BlackBerry devices, PayAnywhere provides merchants with the lowt transaction fees – just 2.69% per swiped transaction. The solution also provides live customer support and an online merchant portal for creating extensive custom transaction reports, setting up business intelligence alerts, viewing customer receipts, and more.
“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,” said Scott Addyman, vice president of sales, PayAnywhere.
