TROY — PayAnywhere Tuesday announced that it has teamed up with Chandler, Ariz.-based Origami Owl, a social-selling jewelry business, to bring the ease of mobile credit card processing to independent Origami Owl Designers nationwide.

With the ability to set up customized inventory and track transaction analytics, PayAnywhere’s free credit card reader combined with its feature-rich mobile application enables merchants of any size to accept credit card payments on-the-go.

As a home party business founded in 2010 by a 14-year-old girl, Origami Owl has quickly transformed into a successful direct sales company. By providing its independent consultants, called “Designers,” with PayAnywhere, the industry’s only enterprise-grade, “pay-as-you-go” mobile payment solution, Origami Owl is empowering them with the tools they need to successfully sell merchandise and analyze what items are getting the most traction amongst buyers.

“Our Independent Designers needed an easy and reliable way to process credit cards,” said Chris Ellis, Origami Owl’s chief business officer. “PayAnywhere is the ideal solution to empower them with an easy-to-use mobile credit card reader that works flawlessly with zero out-of-pocket expense and a low transaction rate.”

“PayAnywhere’s partnership with Origami Owl brings merchant-centric, feature-rich payment tools direct to Origami Owl’s Independent Designers,” said Marc Gardner, CEO of PayAnywhere. “The PayAnywhere solution saves them from high transaction fees and provides them individual inventory and sales tracking tools they need so they can remain focused on growing their business.”

With the Origami Owl “Tools for Success” package, which includes PayAnywhere’s complete mobile point-of-sale system, Origami Owl Designers now have a way to charge customers for their custom jewelry purchases from a variety of locations, no longer missing sales because of a lack of payment method options.

PayAnywhere provides Origami Owl Designers with robust reporting, available within the app and on the free online merchant portal. Designers can also refer to transaction reports for assistance in predicting which products are likely to be “hot sellers” at upcoming parties and events. Origami Owl Designers benefit from the lowest swiped transaction rate in the industry – just 2.69 percent – as well as dedicated, 24/7 customer support.

PayAnywhere is available on iPad, iPhone, Android and BlackBerry devices, so no matter what device platform Origami Owl Designers prefer, PayAnywhere has a solution for them.
