The company is not a direct processor, and it appears to be partnered with multiple credit card processing networks, including North American Bancard, First Data, and Vantiv. Launched in 2005, SalonSwipe offers a mobile processing solution consisting of a free card-reading device plugged into the headphone jack of a user’s mobile device, similar to Square’s hardware. SalonSwipe charges on a per-transaction basis and does not require any contracts or monthly minimums. Isaac Lay is listed as the CEO of SalonSwipe, which is headquartered at 411 W Lambert Rd #404, Brea, California 92821.
