Heartland Payment Systems has launched Mobuyle, a mobile solution that enables merchants to accept credit, debit and gift card payments through their smartphones or mobile devices.
Mobuyle is designed for brick and mortar businesses looking for off-premise processing capabilities or onsite flexibility, including the ability to easily add extra point-of-sale (POS) payment terminals to dispel long checkout lines or ‘line-busting’. It is also ideal for mobile businesses that want to provide customers with convenient payment options.
The solution enables merchants to accept all major credit and debit cards, including corporate cards and Heartland Gift Marketing’s loyalty and gift cards, via secure card swipe or manual entry. It features electronic signature capture, GPS location capture, merchandise picture storage, and voice authorisation capabilities, and enables merchants to accept card payments even if they are out of range for cellular coverage or WiFi access with store and forward (SAF) functionality.
Lynette Sturdavant, creative director and manager of S&L Hair Gallery in Jacksonville, NC, and one of Mobuyle’s first users, said: “Success in the retail world ultimately revolves around finding new and innovative ways to better serve our customers. Mobuyle has enabled us to do just that by providing us the flexibility and functionality to increase checkout convenience for patrons and, in turn, boost customer satisfaction. Plus, Heartland helps us keep our mobile processing costs to a minimum, which helps our bottom line.”
