Make Life Easier With VirtualMerchant Mobile

\"phone\"If only life were easier. Chances are, this is a sentence that is uttered by most people on a daily basis. As a society, we tend to lean towards convenience, expedience and relative ease with just about decision that we make. And why shouldn’t we? We work hard. It’s only fair that the harder we work, the easier we make things for ourselves, right? Well, thankfully new advances in technology continue to centre around making things easy.

And at Canadian POS Corporation, we have taken steps to make accepting Visa, MasterCard and Interac payments easier than ever! VirtualMerchant Mobile allows our clients to transform their mobile devices into POS terminals. That means your customers don’t necessarily have to enter your place of business in order to use their credit and debit cards to make a payment to you.

Essentially, VirtualMerchant Mobile makes it so that you may accept credit and debit transactions quickly and securely anywhere! It’s as easy as pulling out your smart phone to accept a payment. Set up requires a few short steps. Firstly, after signing on with Canadian POS Corporation to accept payments, you’ll be able to download the VirtualMerchant Mobile app to your Apple® or Google® Android mobile device.

You will then enter your account information as provided by Canadian POS. Once your smart phone is configured, you’ll be able to accept key-entered transactions. This allows you to charge a credit or debit card whether the physical card itself is present or not. If you feel more comfortable with swiped transactions, you can do that as well. There are a number of card readers available that are compatible with VirtualMerchant Mobile.

MagTek® has produced two card readers for different smart phone types. If you’re an Apple user, then the iDynamo is for you. You can attach it to your Apple iPhones™ 3G, 3GS, 4 and 4S as well as the Apple iPad™ 1 & 2 and the Apple iPod Touch™. For Google Android users, the BulleT or Bluetooth is compatible with all versions beginning at 2.2 and higher.

VirtualMerchant Mobile literally puts the power to generate more business in your hands. It’s especially beneficial for business owners who run their companies on-the-go. Tradesmen, personal hair stylists, tow truck drivers, independent graphic designers, musicians, photographers, taxi drivers and so many other vocations could make great use of such a feature.

Gone are the days when “I don’t have any cash” was a reasonable excuse for your customer to delay making a payment to you. The times when “your store was closed” was a reason for you to miss out on completing a sale with a customer are behind us. Now, with your smart phone, a credit or debit card payment can be made just about anywhere or anytime.

VirtualMerchant Mobile provides our clients with the ability to accept POS transactions regardless of who their wireless providers are. They can accept card payments regardless if their customers have their cards present or not. It’s time to make your life easier.
