A Robust Mobile Payments Platform
PayAnywhere, sometimes spelled as “Pay Anywhere,” is a mobile credit card processing service offered by North American Bancard; however, PayAnywhere warrants its own review because the service is a departure from North American Bancard’s typical merchant account setup. It should be noted that even though the service is powered by North American Bancard, the actual processor of the credit card transactions is Global Payments. In addition to its two mobile phone card readers, PayAnywhere also offers a tablet-based point-of-sale system called PayAnywhere Storefront.
PayAnywhere Payment Processing
PayAnywhere processes all major debit and credit cards for all business types. They specifically focus on their PayAnywhere software, which includes a mobile app, a virtual terminal, invoicing, recurring billing, employee tools, inventory tools, data reporting and analytics, PCI Plus security, and same-day and next-day funding. This software ties in with their hardware offerings, which include smart terminals, smart point-of-sale, mobile readers, and accessories such as printers, docks, and cash drawers.
A Growing Processing Service
PayAnywhere is North American Bancard’s answer to Square’s mobile credit card processing service. The service appears to have launched in 2010, but it has not enjoyed the same kind of buzz and popularity as Square. Even so, PayAnywhere has been garnering an increasing amount of media attention and has outlasted Intuit’s GoPayment as well as a few other early mobile competitors. PayAnywhere is headquartered at 250 Stephenson Hwy. Troy, Mi 48083. Marc Gardner is listed as the president and CEO of North American Bancard.
