A great question we received in the office today is do I need to manage software updates on my phone if I choose AprivaPay over ROAMpay (or PAYware mobile)? The answer is “No”.
A great benefit of AprivaPay is that it is browser not software based. This means that instead of downloading a credit card processing app, the merchant accesses AprivaPay’s mobile terminal site with their cell phone.
A username and password is entered on the AprivaPay site. Then credit card information is entered and processed. AprivaPay manages the back-end. There are never any software updates to download.
This can be a huge benefit for those merchants who do not like to be distracted by updates. AprivaPay is compatible with a few phones including the iPhone 4 and Droid X.

Processing credit cards using ROAMpay and your mobile phone (over 100 models are compatible, see my compatibility list) is simple and straight forward.
Once the card has been swiped, and all information entered you will see either Payment Approved! or Payment Declined! In rare cases, you may see an error message. This could mean that the transaction timed out.
To confirm whether a transaction has successfully been completed, check your current batch. Access your current batch under the Inquiry Menu. The last transaction processed will show at the top of the current batch list. If the last transaction listed is the transaction you are inquiring about, then it was processed correctly.
If the latest transaction is not listed under current batch, then the transaction needs to be re-entered and submitted.
