VeriFone’s PAYware Mobile is a popular mobile credit card processing app among on-the-go merchants. Previously, PAYware Mobile was only available for the iPhones, iPads, and iPods. But now…I am excited to let our BlackBerry and Android merchants know that they can now process their customers credit cards with the PAYware Mobile App! This is still keyed-in only…but I am sure VeriFone will have an encryption sleeve available soon!
Here are the benefits of PAYware Mobile.
PAYware Mobile maps each and every transaction for its users. The app provides a longitude and latitude tag marking where a sale has occurred. This helps reduce transaction disputes, and provides excellent tracking records for future marketing efforts.
PAYware Mobile is a fully encrypted and PCI compliant. Credit card information is encrypted instantly, and remains so until it reaches the card issuer. Information is never stored on the device.
Complete Management of Fleets
PAYware Mobile allows all transactions, from all mobile devices, to be tracked, monitored, and deactivated from a remote location. The PAYware Mobile Gateway provides real-time management functions. For those business owners with a mobile fleet, this peace of mind is priceless.
PAYware Mobile is super easy to use. The user friendly interface can have even the most novice smartphone operator processing credit cards in no time. The mobile app also has a test and demo function which allows its users to become familiar with the app before going live. PaymentMax can have mobile merchants up and running fast! Many times in less than 24 hours.

Great news coming from Verifone this week…the PAYware Mobile App is now compatible with BlackBerry Smartphones!
Our BlackBerry clients who have been holding out for the PAYware Mobile credit card processing app can now start accepting all major credit cards by keying in the transaction. Verifone is expected to have a PAYware Mobile Swipe for the RIM BlackBerry this summer.
One big benefit of PAYware Mobile is the geo-tagging capability. This function shows merchants plot points on a map of where their sales have occurred. A great tracking function to increase sales. The geo-tagging also gives a longitude and latitude tag on each transaction to help lower the risk of a dispute.

Merchants who prefer to conduct business on their BlackBerry versus an Apple will be pleased to know that if you have a BlackBerry with an operating system (O.S) of 5.0 or greater you can start accepting credit cards with a PaymentMax merchant account and AprivaPay.
The RIM BlackBerry Torch 9800 is a popular choice with PaymentMax clients, who accept credit cards in a mobile environment, for its battery life. This smartphone comes equipped with a 1300 mAHr removable/chargeable lithium ion battery giving up to 5.8 hours of talk time, and 18 hours of standby time. The last thing a mobile merchant wants is a dead battery. No phone no sale.
Another great feature our clients boast about is the touch screen keyboard and the slide out QWERTY keyboard. They are able to maneuver between the two keyboards as needed to make the transaction easy and fast for their customers. The AprivaPay credit card reader and printer make the process even faster with most fields being populated.

This is usually the first question our clients ask. How long will it take before I am up and running…accepting credit cards on my Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, HTC, or other popular smart phones. The answer is-it depends on what mobile app you choose (ROAMpay, PAYware, or AprivaPay).
Each mobile app and corresponding equipment, like credit card readers and printers, are determined by the type of smartphone you have.
Here is a run down.
PAYware mobile works with iPhone 3, 3GS, 4, and iPad. The mobile app is free, and is available at the app store. The app downloads in a few seconds. If you want to swipe your customer’s credit cards you require an encryption sleeve. This is available at the Apple store for immediate purchase. A new merchant account can usually be approved in 24 hours.
ROAMpay Mobile works with the most smart phones/tablets on the market, including Android, iPhone, iPad, Xoom Tablet, BlackBerry, HTC, and over a hundred more. Please see my compatibility list for full list. The app and reader are available through preferred partners such as PaymentMax. Once the new merchant account is approved (about 24hours), The ROAMpay app will be downloaded via SMS link, and the Swiper can be shipped next day, or priority mail depending on your needs.
AprivaPay is compatible with Microsoft (5.0 and 6.0), Android (OS 2.0 and later),iPhone (OS 2x and later), iPad, and BlackBerry devices. AprivaPay is the only PaymentMax supplier to offer a credit card reader and printer combination for mobile devices. Once the new merchant account is approved (usually 24 hours), the reader/printer peripheral can be shipped next day or priority mail. The AprivaPay app is available at AprivaPay.

A common question being received in the PaymentMax office concerns the ROAMpay mobile and ROAMpay Swipe on the BlackBerry. The first question is, “How do I navigate easily through the ROAMpay mobile app?”
The BlackBerry key seen above is used heavily in the ROAMpay application. To easily navigate and enter data, press the BlackBerry Button and choose the appropriate action.
“My BlackBerry Swiper is not working and it is plugged into the audio jack.”
Once you have ensured your ROAMpay Swiper is plugged completely in, make sure the volume is turned to maximum. The credit card swiper will not work unless the volume is turned to maximum.
