How Can You Turn Your iPad Into a Credit Card Reader?

In what experts sometimes refer to as the “Uber economy,” your business does not have to be anchored to a physical location or even a website. Today, many businesses are “on-the-go” with an entirely mobile product and service providers that travel to the customer. This modern twist on a very ancient commerce model reemerged with the advent of mobile payment technologies. With systems like Revel POS and others, mobile businesses can use an iPad tablet device to process all forms of payment from virtually anywhere.

Mobile Payment Solutions

Businesses of all types have the option of streamlining payment options. Cloud-based point-of-sale software designed with built-in flexibility makes creating customized solutions for any business model possible. With an iPad, an app-based software solution such as Revel POS or Clover POS Systems and a few pieces of external equipment, business owners can simplify the payment process for their customers. The additional hardware you need will depend on your type of business and your customers’ preferences, but you might consider adding some or all of the following:

Mobile Card Reader – Required to accept all payment types. Be sure your customers can use their EMV chip-enabled credit and debit cards. Some models can even capture customer signatures.
•Cash Drawer – The ability to receive and organize cash is still essential in managing your business.
Bar Code Reader – Scanning USP codes as opposed to keying in individual SKU numbers speeds up the checkout process significantly.
Receipt Printer – Some customers prefer a paper copy of their receipt, but many like you to email them their receipt. A printer and POS system enables you to do either.
