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.

Getting started accepting all major credit cards with the iPad is quick and easy. For more information visit www.paymentmax.com
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.

There has been a lot of talk regarding the Square credit card processing app and card reader. While it does receive favorable reviews, business owners must realize the differences before making their processing decisions. Here is a comparison between Square and ROAMpay mobile and a merchant account with PaymentMax.
1. Square is not a merchant account and users will have less control over their money. Square is similar to the third party payment site PayPal and will hold any processing funds over $1000 for up to 30 days. In some cases, 45 days. PaymentMax offers next day funding on processing funds.
2. Square is only compatible with Apple iPhone (3GS, 3G, and4), iPad, iTouch (2nd gen), and certain Google Android devices. ROAMpay Mobile is compatible with hundreds of different cell phones including BlackBerry.
3.Square app does not currently have the ability to refund or remove cash payments from the payments page. ROAMpay does offer this function and is extremely helpful for bookkeeping and tax reasons.
4. ROAMpay offers merchant the ability to make offline sales when a phone connection is lost. Square FAQ mentioned no such ability.
5. Square has a description and picture function for receipts. Merchants can send a detailed description of items purchased.

One of the first questions our clients ask when they are being set-up with a mobile merchant account from PaymentMax is, “what happens if someone steals my phone, or one of my employee’s phones.” “Will the thief be able to access my customers sensitive credit card information?”
The answer is no! PaymentMax offers ROAMpay Mobile, PAYware mobile, and AprivaPay. All three of these mobile phone and tablet credit card processing apps have the highest level of security. There is absolutely no storage of sensitive credit card data on the mobile devices. Also, credit card information is always encrypted during transmission.
If your phone/tablet/ipad is lost or stolen simply give PaymentMax a call and we can transfer your account to your new phone or tab.
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.
