As a business owner, you can begin accepting credit cards anytime and anywhere thanks to secure smartphone payment processing solutions for Android™ or iPhone®. Given that a majority of your customers no longer regularly carry cash, enabling mobile credit card processing for smartphone users is a must.

This payment option is especially important if your teams ever travel to appointments, trade shows, conferences, and other off-site events. Credit card processing with Android or iOS devices allows them to continue generating sales — even when they’re in the field.

To get started, all you need is a smartphone, a credit card reader for iPhone or Android, a payment app for Android or iPhone, and a data connection. You can accept payments on your smartphone — right away. With mobile credit card processing enabled, you no longer have to wait for sales to come to you. You can securely process new transactions anywhere and everywhere your customers go.

How to accept payments on smartphones or tablets

Never miss a sales opportunity — even when you’re on the go. With the right Android or iPhone/iPad credit card processing solution, you’ll be able to process and pre-authorize transactions instantly, as well as allow customers to sign and receive emailed receipts right from your mobile device.

To enable credit card processing for Android or iOS devices:

  • Open a merchant account with a payment processing provider
  • Download the provider’s mobile payment app
  • Pair a certified Android or iPhone credit card reader
  • Swipe, dip, or tap customer’s credit card to complete sale

PCI-compliant Android and iPhone credit card processing

It’s important to look for a merchant account provider that complies with the latest PCI Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) so credit card information is never stored on your mobile device. With no data stored, there’s no sensitive payment information to steal.

Simply put, PCI-compliant Android or iPhone payment processing solutions can help create a more secure purchasing experience for your customers.
