Picture this: you’re out at a trade show or convention, selling your products or services to the thousands of people walking past your booth, when finally a customer approaches you with a serious inquiry into what you’re selling. They’re more than interested – they actually want to buy, right then, right there. They pull out their wallet only to ask you if you accept credit cards because they don’t carry cash, and what can you say, other than, “I’m sorry, we don’t have the capability of accepting credit cards on the go”?
Web Payment Software can now help change all of that for you. Whether you’re an existing WPS customer or you need a new account to accept mobile payments, the new WPS Swiper App is built to handle commerce on the go across any and every industry. Mountain Media is proud to announce the launch of this new Web Payment Software app that is now available on the iTunes store.
How it Works
Once you sign up for a Web Payment Software merchant account, using the new Swiper App is easy. With your new account, we’ll send you an iMag Pro Mobile MagStripe Reader that plugs directly into the dock connector of any iOS device, including iPod Touch, iPad and iPhone, prior to iPhone 5 (iPhone 5 support is coming soon – this card reader will plug into the headphone jack of the new iPhone 5 devices).
From there, you simply log in to your account from your iOS device and you can begin accepting credit card payments using the app. Enter the amount for the transaction and run the customer’s credit card through the swiper mechanism on the bottom of your iOS device. The card reader will automatically pull the information off the credit card and bring you to a screen that allows your customer to sign to authorize the payment. They can then opt to have their receipt emailed directly to them.
It’s as easy as that – accepting payments on the go has never been more fast and easy, and now every retailer can accept credit cards anytime and from anywhere.
For starters, the major benefit of this app is that it’s free to download, plus with the Web Payment Software transaction fees currently in place, you won’t be overcharged for any transaction made through the WPS Swiper app. Our fees are lower than PayPal and our other competitors, plus, you get more one-on-one merchant support from our developers and programmers should you ever run into any issues with your account.
The ability to accept credit cards from any location at any time can be hugely beneficial to your business as it allows you the ease of selling everywhere you go. Whether you’re heading to a trade show, a farmers’ or flea market, a convention or otherwise, you will no longer have the worry of attracting a customer who only carries plastic in their wallets.
