The Kyocera Echo caught my attention as I was researching the new mobile devices supported by ROAMdata’s G3x swiper. This unusual name packs a big punch in the mobile arena with a customized app that allows users to manage their battery life.
Users can pre-determine when they would like their device to switch to low-power mode based on battery life. This feature can be especially helpful for PaymentMax clients who accept credit cards on their mobile phones. Battery life equals sales!
Another feature attractive to mobile merchants is the Kyocera Echo’s durability. Kyocera used a super copper alloy and through strength analysis created a 3-dimensional hinge so unique it has SIX patents pending.
Accepting credit cards on the Kyocera Echo is fast and easy. All you need is your mobile device, PaymentMax merchant account, mobile credit card processing app, and credit card swiper (if you choose).

Mobile merchants can turn their iPad into an instant credit card terminal with a PaymentMax merchant account, ROAMpay app, and ROAMpay Swipe (optional). Both the mobile credit card processing app and swiper peripheral are compatible with the WiFi and WiFi/3G versions.
The iPad has quickly become a favorite among our mobile clients. The larger screen allows their customers to see the transaction taking place as it happens, and their credit/debit card never leaves their sight.

ROAMdata, the manufacturer of ROAMpay and ROAMpay Swipe, announced on their blog a few days ago that their mobile credit card reader cannot be hacked like the Square device was at the Blackhat conference. Important information for our iPad and other mobile merchants who care about their clients security.
Here is the run down.
- ROAMpay Swipe is encrypted. This means that the card data is encrypted before it reaches the phone. The card data can only be decrypted by a secure payment server. The Square can be turned into a credit card skimmer because it lacks encryption ability.
- ROAMpay does not recognize third-party audio signals from recorded files. The Square was demonstrated to accept a series of audio signals from a stolen credit card through the headphone jack on the device.
- Square has no electronics which reduce read rates and processing costs. Take a look at the internal difference between ROAMpay Swipe and Square.

Tablet credit card processing has become a hot topic these days, more and more merchants are turning their tablets into instant credit card terminals with the help of PaymentMax, the ROAMpay app, and ROAMpay Swipe.
One big advantage tablets, like the Samsung Galaxy Tab, have over mobile phones is the screen is much bigger. Customers are able to get a better look as the credit card transaction is taking place. It is a win-win situation with tablet credit card processing: the credit card never leaves the customers sight and they can watch as the merchant enters and swipes their credit card!
News update for Droid X merchants (using ROAMpay) wanting to swipe their customers credit cards and receive those those low swiped rates…ROAMpay Swipe is compatible with the Droid X!
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.
