All of the credit card processing providers below offers wireless credit card processing solutions.
Wireless Merchant Accounts
Wireless Merchant Account Solutions are options that enable merchants to use their own merchant account to process via wireless devices, via phone, or via laptop. Wireless merchant accounts are most widely used by card-present mobile merchants, but they also support mail/phone order entry via their keypad (cards do not have to be swiped to be processed). “Card Present” simply means that at least 80% of your business is done face-to-face with your customers so you can “swipe” or “slide” the card through the terminal. Card swiping always offers the lowest rates from a per-transaction perspective. But, when it comes to monthly fees touch-tone solutions and Laptop/Virtual Terminal merchant account solutions offer lower monthly fees.(Use wireless terminals, existing PDA phone attachments, touch-tone phones, or even laptops to process payments wirelessly)!
Though prices do vary from one merchant provider to another, one thing that is fairly common is that real wireless credit card processing do cost more overall than real standard retail merchant accounts. This is due to the expensive wireless network and carrier costs usually associated with a wireless merchant account. A fairly priced wireless merchant account should cost only about $0.05 cent more per transaction and $10-$15 more per month than the standard retail merchant account.
Benefits of your own wireless merchant account vs. other trendy third party wireless solutions that wireless merchant accounts have a ton more flexibility and service and lower overall transaction fees. Third party wireless solutions that are often touted on various blogs are good for some merchants processing less than $1000 per month and that do not have a desire to have a representative that is associated with their account. Not only do wireless merchant accounts cost you much less per transaction, but you also have much better customer service, fraud monitoring, chargeback assistance (in case your customer is disputing a card), and detailed online reporting. Wireless merchant accounts are much better overall for the professional merchant that wants to worry less about issues surrounding credit card processing, and more on running their business. Real wireless merchant accounts also offer the flexibility of combining services – so you may combine a wireless terminal with a touch-tone solution, or touch-tone solution with the laptop solution (all under one account)!

Here’s what some of our clients had to say about Touch-Pay:
“I have received all of my merchant information and I wanted to thank you for making this a simple, pleasant process. It truly is as easy as you make it seem on your web site. I was expecting a lot of unmentioned fees and complicated credit card processing procedures. I used the ARU for the first time this morning. I was, quite honestly, shocked at the simplicity of the process. All I had to do was put in a few numbers and my authorization code was provided. Thank you once again for your professionalism, honesty and “easy to use” system.”
