[prMac.com] Tustin, CA - Apple had no idea when it launched it's iPhone that it would be releasing about 5 million mobile credit card terminals into the hands of business owners. That's exactly what Apple did. The sleek phone has been turned into a mobile credit card processing device, thanks to an impressive little application called ProcessAway.
The software is made for an Apple iPhone or iPod Touch and works over any available network connection. Transactions can be processed at places such as conventions, street fairs, antique shows, and by business owners performing mobile detailing, on-site consultation or construction. The list is endless on who could benefit by offering the convenience of accepting credit cards on the spot and the confidence of getting immediate authorization for a credit card payment.
The software performs captures, authorizations, voids and credits. It utilizes multiple database tables for recording transactions and repeating sale information, such as order, shipping, and customer info. There is also an option to add a gratuity to the final charge.
"Since the announcement of ProcessAway last month, there has been a tremendous amount of interest for versions that operate with other gateways," states Randy Palermo, Member of Rapadev, LLC, the developer of the software. "We are currently expanding the line to accommodate these requests." The current version of ProcessAway works only with the AuthorizeNet gateway. "We realize there is a large number of gateways and resellers that can benefit by offering iPhone credit card processing. We hope ProcessAway can fulfill this need, and welcome contact from interested parties wanting to adapt the software for specific gateways." Currently under development are versions for NMI, PayLeap, and Chase Paymentech, along with privately branded version for specific resellers.
Pricing and Availability:
ProcessAway for Authorize.net is available in Apple AppStore for $19.99 (USD). Additional information, video, screenshots, and FAQ's can be found at their website.
