Wireless / Mobile Credit Card Processing

Several years ago, paying with a credit card was more of a luxury rather than a necessity or expectation. It was easier, quicker and more common to pay for groceries, gas or even clothes with cash or check. Today, things are much different and the evolution of technology has made credit cards the most popular and common form of payment, causing most businesses to convert to high-tech credit card processing machines.

Wireless / Mobile Credit Card Processing

Even more recently, many businesses are looking into mobile and wireless processing in order to meet growing customer demand, provide better service and become more efficient at accepting and processing payments anywhere, anytime:

  • Airlines have realized how much easier wireless processing is in flight, where flight attendants can just swipe a card and punch a button to process a food or beverage payment rather than keeping track of large amounts of cash.
  • Sports venues and theaters have also enhanced their services by having servers accept food and beverage orders in the stands via wireless credit card processers.
  • Trade show vendors have started to utilize wireless processing so they are never stuck saying "Cash Only" to a potential customer that arrives at their booth.

In addition to allowing businesses to sell anything from anywhere, benefits of upgrading to wireless credit card processing include:

  • Increased sales
  • Faster payment processing
  • Reduced operating expenses
  • Greater security
  • Increased customer satisfaction

Depending on the size of your business, your industry, and your specific goals, there are many types of wireless processing systems that may be right for you, including:

  • Wireless Terminal - A wireless credit card terminal is a standard payment-processing machine that works on a GPRS or CDMA wireless network. Many come with built-in receipt printer, Store and Forward features, and free web-based transaction managers where you can view transactions and run reports. The wireless terminal can serve as a stationary outlet and sit in one place. Still, the machine is mobile and can be moved. Therefore, this type of system is great for businesses with temporary locations or mobile operations, such as taxicabs, mall kiosks and seasonal stores or businesses.
  • Dial Up / Phone Processor - A dial-up or phone processor, such as one of our most popular products, DialPay, allows you to process a credit card payment from any touch-tone phone, including a cell phone. You don't need any hardware, software or terminals, and transactions are entered by dialing a toll free 800 number from the phone. These processors are perfect for low-volume businesses that thrive on a mobile customer service or sales model, or those that conduct a lot of out-of-store sales operations, such as trade show or craft fair vendors.
  • Software - Payment processing software allows you to process debit and credit cards using your computer. You will also need an Internet connection. It can be installed on a single computer or on an entire network to provide greater access. Ignite Payments offers a variety of software packages customized for your industry.
  • Virtual Terminal - A virtual terminal is a web-based application that can be used on any computer with an Internet connection, and it allows you to process payments without downloading software. You can take orders by phone, fax or email and then log into your account and enter the credit card information. This is a great option for businesses that make sales at trade shows or while traveling.
  • Gateway Option - A payment gateway is a web-based application that allows your customers to make purchases on your web site. These can be handled one at a time, or an entire batch at once. This solution comes with the added benefit of multiple users so that an entire staff can enter data simultaneously.
