Every day, more and more users prefer to pay by card or by mobile phone, as they experience greater security and, above all, comfort in the process.
Electronic payment allows the development of transactions without mobility limitations of any kind. This facility will not only attract more customers to your business, but will also allow you to reduce management costs by bringing all your operations into the virtual world.
This is why many of these businesses, especially the most successful, have opted to use Mobile POS, as mobile dataphones are generically known.
In this article you will find information about the operation and features offered by a Mobile POS and how to use it in the most effective way.
What is a Mobile POS?
A Mobile POS is basically a credit, debit and/or prepaid card reader linked to your Smartphone or Tablet and which you can use anywhere and at any time; as long as you have access to the internet via Wifi or 3G-4G.
What do you need to use a POS in the Mobile and how does it work?
It is very simple. You don’t need to be a computer expert, or spend money on technical or advisory services, as it is designed for anyone with a mobile device to use it effectively.
First, you will need to get a Credit Card Reader
It is usually a small device, which we can take with us anywhere. It does not need to be connected, which allows us greater mobility; you just have to remember to power its battery before starting its daily use.
We recommend that you familiarise yourself with the device by reading the user manual before using it for the first time. Once you have purchased the Credit Card Reader, you only need to have a Smartphone or Tablet at hand; as you prefer and feel more comfortable.
Log in to the Google Play or App Store on your mobile device to download the application.
The next step is to activate Bluetooth and pair both devices (Smartphone or Tablet – Credit Card Reader)
Once you accept the Bluetooth connection they will be permanently linked and ready to use the application you download.
To obtain a POS on your mobile, you have two options: apply for it at the bank of your choice or contact independent companies. The first solution is tied to contract signatures, and a lot of paperwork.
The second option, a little more flexible, will depend on the company you go to and its payment models.
