PayAnywhere (www.payanywhere.com), a leader in mobile point of sale solutions, today announced availability of its highly anticipated mobile payment application and credit card reader for BlackBerry smartphones. With a complete set of mobile payments features, around the clock customer support and an online Merchant Portal, PayAnywhere is the most comprehensive mobile payment solution available in BlackBerry App World.
Vendors and merchants using BlackBerry smartphones can use PayAnywhere, the payment industry’s only enterprise-grade, no compromise, “pay-as-you-go” mobile payment solution suited for any merchant. Created after two decades providing credit card processing to merchants of all sizes, PayAnywhere’s mobile point of sale (POS) technology helps merchants improve cash flow, boost sales and help save money with keyed transactions.

PayAnywhere has taken great care to ensure our app, payment service, online Merchant Portal and customer care address merchants’ payment needs so they can focus on growing their businesses.”
Setting up a PayAnywhere account is fast and easy. A merchant simply visits BlackBerry App World to download the free PayAnywhere app, and follows the in-app instructions to sign up for the payment service and to receive the free card reader accessory.
With PayAnywhere there are no hidden fees; no setup, monthly or cancellation fees. For smaller merchants, PayAnywhere also offers a pay-as-you-go pricing plan with no monthly minimum processing requirement. Merchants using PayAnywhere enjoy a low 2.69% transaction fee and the fastest payouts in the industry, with transaction funds typically deposited in merchant accounts within two business days.
