PayAnywhere Mobile App and Credit Card Reader Now Available from Amazon.com
TROY — PayAnywhere, the professional grade mobile point of sale provider, announced that Amazon.com, the world’s largest online retailer, will be selling both the PayAnywhere mobile app and the award-winning PayAnywhere credit card reader across its online properties.
Online orders of the PayAnywhere card reader will be fulfilled and shipped directly from Amazon, and the PayAnywhere app is available for instant download from the Amazon Appstore.
PayAnywhere is a mobile point of sale system suited for any size business. The PayAnywhere mobile point of sale system is available for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android and BlackBerry devices.
Scott Addyman, vice president of sales at PayAnywhere, noted that the analytics firm Forrester predicts an estimated $559 billion in online business-to-business sales for 2013.
“As more businesses turn to online retailers for their everyday purchases, it is increasingly important for PayAnywhere to make our card reader available on the websites that businesses are visiting the most,” Addyman said. “Amazon is one of the most visited Internet retail destinations worldwide and as a one-stop shop, businesses of all sizes use Amazon to purchase a wide range of supplies. This makes Amazon a natural fit as the next large retailer to offer the PayAnywhere mobile point of sale solution.”
Starting today, individuals and business owners can now purchase the PayAnywhere reader online at www.amazon.com. Once the credit card reader is activated, PayAnywhere includes a $10 rebate as reimbursement for a suggested retail price of $9.99. As a special offer for those who buy PayAnywhere from Amazon.com, PayAnywhere is offering $1,000 in free processing within the first 30-days of account activation.
With PayAnywhere there are no hidden fees; no setup, monthly or cancellation fees. Individuals and business owners using PayAnywhere pay 2.69 percent of the sales total for swiped transactions and typically see the funds deposited in accounts within two business days, reducing the wait for important cash flow.
In addition to the mobile app and card reader, PayAnywhere offers an online portal for creating extensive custom transaction reports, setting up email alerts, viewing customer receipts, monthly statements and more.
Setting up a PayAnywhere account is fast, easy and free. Once the PayAnywhere reader is purchased from Amazon.com, users simply download the free app from Amazon Appstore, the Apple App Store, Google Play or BlackBerry App World and follow the in-app instructions to sign up for their account. Approval takes only a few hours, allowing the business or individual to begin accepting credit and debit card payments the very same day the reader is purchased.
PayAnywhere is a subsidiary of a Troy credit card processing company, North American Bancard.
