UK payment processing provider WorldPay is extending its pay as you go (PAYG) card acceptance service for small businesses to include iOS compatible devices. The service is now available through iPhones and iPads, as well as Android smartphones and tablets, and Blackberry.
WorldPay has also announced an update for its Android app featuring a customer-friendly user interface. The service has also been updated to give customers the option of printing receipts using a Bluetooth printer. The company is expanding its pilot programme, which has several thousand users across the UK, ahead of a full commercial launch in the summer and is inviting businesses and individuals to trial the service.
The company’s PAYG card acceptance service allows sole traders and small businesses in mobile professions such as mobile hairdressers, plumbers and photographers, who would traditionally need to rely on cash, cheque or bank transfer to take card payments on their smartphone. The service is specifically designed for sole traders and small businesses with one to five employees and has no minimum commitments.
