Mobile Payment Reader

0 min read

You may benefit from using a mobile payment reader if you conduct some of your sales transactions online and others in person. Unlike traditional, bulky credit card readers, a mobile payment reader, typically offered by cloud-based accounting software companies, is a small accessory that plugs into your smart device’s headphone jack.

You only need to launch the app made for the reader, and you can swipe client credit cards and email them receipts in your office or theirs, and on the go at festivals and farmers’ markets. Being linked to online accounting software means you have real-time records of your mobile payment reader transactions, which can be synced with your other bookkeeping data.
