The Android PayAnywhere 2.0 mPOS app works with the free PayAnywhere mobile credit card reader, which plugs into the audio jack of a supported Android device, giving merchants a safe and simple way to accept credit and debit card payments directly from their Android phone or tablet.
With rates at just 2.69% per swiped transaction, regardless of card type and next day funding for merchants’ transactions, PayAnywhere is aiming to position itself the payment industry’s preeminent business-grade, “pay-as-you-go” mPOS solution.
“The updates to the PayAnywhere Android app are a direct result of the valuable feedback we received from our customers who have been using PayAnywhere from their Android phones or tablets,” said Marc Gardner, CEO of PayAnywhere. “Our customers are going to love the intuitive new layout of the app and will see a direct impact on their business when they begin using the advanced reporting and business intelligence features all built into the app and the new merchant portal, PayAnywhere Inside. Features like our new social media integration, where merchants can add a custom line to the electronic receipt that customers receive inviting them to like the business on Facebook with a single click, set PayAnywhere apart from the competition.”
