Intuit has launched GoPayment to help entrepreneurs process credit cards outside the office. GoPayment helps small businesses improve sales and cash flow by using their mobile phones to accept credit card payments.
GoPayment is affordable and hassle-free – the merchant only needs a mobile phone with access to the mobile web, or the GoPayment application, and an GoPayment merchant account. As one of its first partners, Intuit is working with Sprint to help small businesses get paid easily and quickly using the GoPayment application on select Sprint phones. Intuit is also working with beeweeb and VeriSign’s Messaging and Mobile Media Division, along with others, to deliver innovative mobile offerings.
“There’s no better time for a mobile offering like GoPayment,” said Tim Donahue, vice president-business marketing, Sprint. “Partnering with Intuit, we’re offering business customers a unique mobile payment solution that is affordable, simple to use and enables them to receive immediate payment for services via our dependable Now Network, which will be critical to helping them survive and thrive in these tough economic times.”
