In an effort to make mobile payments easier and more convenient for merchants that are constantly on the go and operate remotely, Direct Pay Online will be releasing a new mobile app and swipe card technology. With these new tools, providers will be able to take credit card payments anywhere with an app and a credit card swipe attachment that connects right to your mobile device. This technology will provide convenience, speed, and the ability to provide superior customer service.
The Mobile App
The first part of this new technology will be the mobile app, which will be available to download from the Google Play store and later from Apple app store. This easy to use application allows merchants to add new customers to their
database, accept their payments and provide an electronic receipt/proof of purchase via text message or email. Taking payments with the mobile app is a simple 3 step process:
- Enter the customer’s details
- Swipe the credit card with the attached swipe device (or fill in the card details)
- Confirm the payment and send the digital receipt
Alternatively, the app will also allow for Email payments. With this option, the merchant can record the customer’s information inside the app, and then email E-invoices and other records to the customer so that they can pay at a later date.
Merchants also have the ability to update and modify their user information in the app at any time as well as view detailed reports. The app is designed for convenience and practicality.
The Swipe Device
While it is possible to use the mobile app as a standalone product, what really makes the Direct Pay Online mobile solution special is the swipe device. As a remote merchant, handling payments can be difficult. Card machines are very expensive
and are becoming obsolete with the advancements in mobile technology. Waiting hours or days until after customers have used your service to collect payment leads to lost revenue and problems collecting debts. The swipe device eliminates all of these issues.
Once the services have been rendered, providers can collect payment immediately. Since more and more people around the world are opting to use credit cards instead of cash, the swipe device allows more flexibility in payment options and streamlines the entire payment process. The wider variety of payment options you can offer customers, the higher chance you have of getting returning customers.
The Future of Payment Solutions
Mobile payments have shown to be the future of how transactions are handled. Remote providers have needed this service for years, and we finally have the solution for them. Costly POS systems and outdated credit card readers are a thing of the past. Direct Pay Online will be leading the way for the future of payment solutions. Eventually, customers will be able to use the Direct Pay Online mobile app as an electronic wallet. This will extend the functionality of the app and make it easier for anyone to manage their payments and access their purchase history.
Consumers need this service. Merchants who want to be on the cutting edge of technology and want the ability to service a wider audience will greatly benefit from the Direct Pay Online mobile app.
