Mobile processing. It’s a term you may have heard before – or, more likely, a method for processing credit card payments that you’ve experienced firsthand rather than learned about. The most common use of mobile processing has been, undoubtedly, at Apple stores. The next time you head into one for a new iPod touch, a hard drive upgrade for your Mac, or just some technical consulting, you’ll notice the convenience of virtually any Apple store sales associate implementing mobile processing of your payment with just the swipe of your credit card through an iPad. This is simply one example of mobile processing, and there are many other ways of going about it, such as other tablet brands, mobile processing-specific portable devices that are built solely for mobile processing alone, and even smart phone or iPhone add-ons that allow for easy credit card swiping.
The term itself is simple enough to break down. Mobile, of course, means you can take it anywhere there’s wi-fi – as some merchants have taken to the extreme, providing mobile processing for remote or mobile businesses – and processing, meaning the same old quality credit card processing you’ve come to expect from a company like Vision Payment Solutions.
