The leading experts in campus-wide payment solutions to independent schools.
Mobile payments are electronic payment services performed with a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. These payments can happen by opening an app on a smartphone, tapping a device to a terminal, or even payment via text message. At independent schools today, mobile payments most commonly occur via the use of card readers.
Before mobile devices came into play, the only option for schools wishing to accept card payments “over the counter” was by using a credit card imprinter, also known as “knuckle busters.” These devices manually imprint payment card information on carbon paper via a back and forth swipe over the card.
Most schools accept payment cards and supplement their payment methods by having a few mobile card readers on hand. Mobile readers, a small hardware device that connects to a tablet or smartphone with a headphone jack, have revolutionized electronic payments and allow merchants to meet consumers wherever they are – the front office, the sporting event, or whever cell data or wi-fi is available.
