    Mobile C Card Readers

    Hi,

    How many of you use a mobile credit card reader such as these.

    https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/credit-card-reader

    http://intuit-gopayment.com/gp

    Depending on marketing techniques face to face they could come in handy for on the spot sales.

    I dont have a smart phone now but i plan to get one, i have been looking at this one.

    http://www.tracfone-orders.com/bpdir...ionId=25035487

    but the requirements for the paypal reader say.

    Android version 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) or higher
    3.5 mm headset jack with microphone
    Support for Location Services
    Access to the internet (via WiFi or cellular data network)

    Which this phone should be fine other than the fact that i cannot find in any of the tech specs that it shows this or any phone as having 3.5 mm headset jack.

    Does that mean that a 3.5 mm jack is so common and standard that they dont have to put it in the specs?


    Do any of you use the mobile card swipes for your business (sales people or whoever) and how are they working for you?

    Thanks

    I have the Intuit one for my iPhone 5 and it's great. These are ideal if you usually accept cash from local customers, since they then have the ability to pay by card too.

    Most modern phones have a 3.5mm headphone jack, but you would want to double check. Just check for reviews etc on the phone you're getting.

    Thanks John,

    Yes i can see a need for it and its free so might as well.

    I checked the tech specs and i have not seen any tech specs that list the size of phone jack so that was my concern. But good call on the review, i will hit youtube im sure some of those video reviews will show it..

    John do you use the Intuit with WHMCS? I could not find a gateway for Intuit on my WHMCS

    It's not used with WHMCS so they're manually added. Would be nice to have a gateway module though!

    I use both Square and Paypal. I'm happy with both of them. Square deposits directly to your bank account. Paypal goes to your paypal account. I kind of prefer Paypal a little more than Square. With Paypal, if you have a debit card, you can spend the money almost immediately.
