Eliminating Stored Mobile Phones: Not Just for Talking Anymore

Product: Wireless ePay
Company: USA ePay

On-the-go merchants, who work outside their offices and out in the field, have faced a credit card dilemma for some time. Accepting card payments away from the store or office has been difficult and expensive.

A wireless POS terminal may be beyond their budget, or they've faced spotty coverage in areas. Or, if merchants decide to take down card numbers to call in or process transactions later, the processing fees fall into the higher nonswiped/retail rate category. A rapidly rising solution to this quandary is the cell phone credit card terminal. Add a card reader to a phone with Internet connectivity and ...Voila! Plumbers can now accept and process credit card payments, right there in their customers' bathrooms.

USA ePay now offers Wireless ePay, a secure software application for processing credit card payments using a cell phone. All transactions run through USA ePay's gateway, which is compliant with Visa's Cardholder Information Security Program and MasterCard's Site Data Protection program.

Merchants can use any J2ME (Java 2.0 platform, micro edition) cell phone connected to the global system for mobile communications, general packet radio service or other Internet networks with any mobile service provider.

The software provides a user-friendly interface that is accessed with a login PIN.

Wireless ePay offers merchants all the standard capabilities of a traditional credit card terminal: sales, credits, voids, authorizations, card capture and transaction record viewing.

The software also supports the address verification system and the card verification value for MO/TO and Internet merchants. Wireless ePay has extensive, real-time reporting and tracking features. Reports can be generated based on any field or filter, in many different graph and chart formats.

For example, merchants with multiple phones and/or employees can tell which staff member used which phone for each transaction.

In addition, the Custom Report Builder generates and tracks information according to any specifications a merchant may have.
