NEWS: Credit Card Swiper Available Today for iPad
On-the-go merchants can now utilize their iPad as a method for accepting purchase payments from customers. The maker of the new Credit Card Terminal, Inner Fence, is making the card reader available for free to those who have new Credit Card Terminal accounts.
The company has found there is quite a demand for iPad devices to swipe credit cards. As the industry on the whole has been advancing in technology for years, allowing merchants to accept cards outside of a traditional store has opened the doors wide open for entrepreneurs of all kinds. As business heads quickly into the virtual world, on-the-go credit card processing devices are becoming more commonplace.
Credit Card Terminal is currently the leading credit point of sale application available for the Apple iPad and iPhone. Prior to the introduction of the swipe mechanism, the application only allowed merchants to key in transactions. While still convenient for those out and about, the swipe terminal advances the industry that much further.
The device works by attaching to the iPad dock connector. It can handle high-volume transactions with accuracy and is built to last. Those activating a new account can receive a new terminal device for free. Additional devices are made available through Inner Fence for $79.
The credit card industry has long been mobile but technology is making it easier for business to be conducted anywhere. With the swipe capabilities of the iPad and iPhone getting more advanced, merchants have less risk for errors in the transaction life cycle and also have more options for generating profits.
Credit Card Readers for the iPad devices are available to ship now and are supported by both the iPad and the iPad2. Apple has tested and certified the product as being compatible. Inner Fence also makes applications for the Credit Card Terminal to be used on a Mac, Android, or Windows Phone.
