Mobile Payments / Maverick SLiDE™  |  Mobile Processing Solutions

Maverick SLiDE is a mobile payments solution that enables you to accept payments on a mobile device.  With a SLiDE credit card reader, which hooks straight into your iPhone, iPad or Android and processes transactions over your cellular data network on the Internet. 

More than just mobile credit card processing, SLiDE can also help merchants manage cash transactions, calculating the change and adding the transaction to the reports. Even if you don’t use the credit card swiper (because it’s lost, forgotten or hasn’t arrived yet), you can still process credit cards using the mobile credit card processing app to key in the card information.

Actual credit card information isn’t stored on the merchant’s device but is transferred and stored with 128-bit encryption (SSL certified by VeriSign). As required by law, SLiDE is PCI-DSS level one compliant. The app is password protected.

Mobile Processing Market

A recently released ABI Research report estimated that near-field communications (NFC) mobile payments are set to dramatically increase in the next few years. Worldwide mobile transactions will break the $100 billion mark in 2016 and will nearly double to $191 billion by 2017.  On mobility, Gartner predicts that Android and iOS will dominate smartphones, but Windows Phone will gain “substantial share.”

By year end 2014:

  • Android shipments will top iOS on tablets.
  • Windows 8 will be an option for enterprises more than individuals.
  • Enterprise app developers will see Windows tablets as a target device in 2013.
  • HTML5 will be the mainstream enterprise app vehicle.
  • Companies will have to exploit three different architectures for mobile apps.
  • Private app stores from enterprises will balloon. RIM is betting on such a move.

 


 

ATM Processing

Debit card/ATM processing is almost like accepting credit cards except for the fact that your customers are using their existing funds to complete an order.

Micropayments (e-Wallet) 

Micropayments are used to process small transaction amounts (from a few cents to $10 USD) that would otherwise severely limit your amount of profit if processed the same as credit cards.

 


 

eCheck Guarantee/Check Verification 

Check guarantee is a program in which you are guaranteed to be paid on your checks.  There’s no need to worry about accepting checks or collection on returned checks.  Usually, the cost for this solution is about the same as credit card acceptance, however, some may offer it for a lower price.


 

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) 

EFT is a method for transferring money automatically by using the facilities of the Automated Clearing House (ACH), an entity associated with the Federal Reserve Banks.  EFT is the only system by which a merchant can initiate a transaction to collect money from the bank account of a customer located anywhere in the USA.  In addition, it can be used to transfer money outwardly to pay bills.


 

Automated Clearing House (ACH) & ACH Services 

It is most often used to process low-dollar repetitive retail payments.  Financial Institutions that are members of the FED ACH System send batches of credits and/or debits into the system, and the system sorts the items from all batches submitted, and routes them to the appropriate receiving financial institution.  The system is used primarily for pre-authorized recurring payments such as payroll, corporate payments to vendors, Social Security payments, insurance premium payments and utility payments.  Section also covers ACH Services like Electronic Check Conversion (ECC), Accounts Receivable Truncated Checks (ARTC/Lockbox), and Returned Check Collections (RCK).


 

Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) 

Grocery shopping is one of the most widely performed activities around the world.  If you are food merchant, you probably know that not everyone pays for their food with cash or credit cards, but many use food stamps as well.  Now that paper is becoming a less and less common form of the food stamp, many purchases are made with the use of a single card called Electronic Benefits Transfer card.
