Charge Anywhere (chargeanywhere.com) is a payment processing software provider that specializes in mobile and e-commerce payment solutions. It’s important to understand that the company only supplies an online payment gateway and a smartphone app that makes accepting mobile payments possible on Android, iPhone, and some Blackberry devices. The company does not actually process payments or supply a merchant account. Merchants who wish to use Charge Anywhere’s products will need to establish a separate merchant account with an actual processor. The company’s software is compatible with virtually every major credit card processor and merchants can select a provider of their choice. Charge Anywhere, LLC. was established in 2004 and is based in South Plainfield, New Jersey. Paul Sabella is listed as the president and CEO of Charge Anywhere.
In September 2014, Charge Anywhere identified malware on its internal network that may have compromised cardholder information between November 5, 2009, and September 14, 2014. The company provided a searchable list of merchants who may have been affected by the incident and has since shut down the attack. A full statement from the company regarding this incident is available here.
