Wave based in Toronto, Canada has announced the launch of a new iOS application that accepts credit card payments on the go, ‘Payments by Wave for iOS’.
Integrated seamlessly with the full Wave ecosystem of small business software, the app allows small business owners to process credit card payments, record cash payments, and issue receipts, all from their mobile devices.
With Payments by Wave for iOS, it’s possible for any small business owner to accept all major credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
“That endless to-do list is a killer for small business owners. It’s stressful, it’s never-ending and it’s entirely unnecessary,” says Wave CEO Kirk Simpson. “With Payments by Wave now available for iOS, not only can small business owners get paid on the spot, but the extra record-keeping steps are automatically taken care of for them.”
