Mobile card readers are mechanisms that attach to a smartphone or tablet, enabling your device to read and process debit or credit card payments. This type of system typically works in tandem with a mobile point of sale (mPOS) software, running off of your mobile device.
Incorporating a field service software into your operations that has the ability to receive payments on any job site is convenient for you, your techs, and your customers. In fact, it can dramatically simplify paperwork and increase the speed of payment for each completed or recurring job.
While this technology offers more convenience and flexibility, many customers still wonder whether mobile card readers are safe to use.
