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.
