NorsePayments has launched its InstantAccept solution for smartphones and tablets, allowing merchants to use any device to process and record any form of electronic payment directly through QuickBooks without the need for manual entry and import of transactions. Resellers can use InstantAccept with their existing acquiring programs on all major U.S. banks and processors.
The POS QuickBooks integration with InstantAccept only requires one screen and one merchant account to accept and record any type of transaction from any device at one or more locations – all while shielding business financial data from employees. With InstantAccept, businesses can combine their storefront, POS and accounting in one user interface to operate more efficiently. InstantAccept also eliminates the need to manually rekey and reconcile transactions, saving significant time and money.
“InstantAccept doesn’t change the way merchants do business or replace QuickBooks – it radically improves both,” said Brent Gephart, Executive Vice President of NorsePayments. “We view our new POS solution as a forward-thinking product that resellers can promote now as the payments sector rapidly moves to online, tablet and mobile point of sale.”
In addition to processing payments, merchants also can collect and manage customer data, create and send invoices and sales receipts, and accept payments, all on the same user interface. InstantAccept runs on both Apple IOS and Android devices.
“With 85% of small businesses using QuickBooks, we know this will be a game changer in how small businesses run,” said Gephart. “We’re taking away the cumbersome tasks of rekeying and reconciling accounts to free merchants up to focus on running their businesses, which is something that will positively impact their bottom line.”
