For all you iOS junkies out there grab your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and listen up. We have some great information for businesses who want to accept credit cards or who are looking for an alternative to traditional credit card terminals.

We know business owners are looking for new options that allow them to accept credit card payments, but what is even more important to you all is the ability to accept cards efficiently and at a low cost that doesn't leave you with hidden fees, a lengthy contract, or without good customer and technical support. For other business owners maybe their main concern is being able to accept credit cards on the go and for their business to be mobile and not need to be tied to a bulky cash register. 

For those merchants who are not familiar, PayAnywhere is the payment industry's only enterprise-grade, "pay-as-you-go" mobile point of sale solution suited for any size merchant, and this week we announced updates to our iOS app, for use on iPhones, iPads and iPod touch, to help you get paid like a pro and to make it easy to turn your device into an iphone credit card reader or ipad credit card reader.

The new PayAnywhere iOS app provides a smooth and simple experience for customers and includes all the bells and whistles a merchant needs in a mobile POS solution, along with live and U.S. based customer service and support that make it easy to get your questions answered whenever you need help or support.

PayAnywhere iOS 1.6 includes exclusive features like landscape mode, geo-tax, custom tip add-ins during check out, and compatibility with cash drawers, AirPrint or Star thermal printers. The newest iOS version also includes:

A Performance Upgrade:
The reorganized menu provides not only better detection for Star printers but also an overall performance boost for a better in-app experience making it more powerful while also being more user friendly.

Enhanced Heat Maps:
The revamped Heat Maps option allows merchants to zoom both in and out of regions and view individual or grouped transactions, allowing them to better target the area in which the greatest number of sales occurred. This gives you more data about your business. 

Combined Tip and Signature:
Speed up sales transactions with a newly merged tip and signature screen. Customers can quickly add their tip and sign their signature on a single screen making transaction time shorter. Next customer please!

No-nonsense Refunds:
PayAnywhere now allows merchants more flexibility to issue refunds for specific items or to adjust the price on particular items from directly within the app.
