In its latest product milestone since its initial launch in January, Troy-based North American Bancard expanded the reach of Pay Anywhere credit card reader for mobile payments, announcing the system is now compatible with Android devices, in addition to all Apple devices.
Currently, Pay Anywhere for Android is supported on HTC EVO 4G, Motorola Droid, HTC Droid Incredible, Motorola Droid X, Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy S Epic, with additional devices being added regularly.
Android customers can visit www.payanywhere.com for the most current list of supported devices.
Additionally, Pay Anywhere is fully compatible with iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4, as well as iPad, iPad 2 and iPod touch. Pay Anywhere will soon be available for BlackBerry mobile customers.
“We can’t wait to welcome Android customers to the NAB family and to Pay Anywhere, which we’re confident is the most intuitive and robust mobile payment system available on the platform,” said Marc Gardner, NAB founder and president. “We look forward to Android users experiencing what Apple customers already enjoy about Pay Anywhere — free software and hardware, no setup fees, no application fees, no monthly service fees and no monthly minimums required. Additionally, the Pay Anywhere Android application combines a simple user interface, comprehensive merchant portal and a built-in lead generation program that results in automatic merchant bonuses.”
Getting started with a Pay Anywhere account is easy. Android and Apple users simply download the free app from Android Market or the App Store, respectively, and the appropriate free card reader device will be delivered directly to each customer.
