ePNMobile supports more cell phones, more PDAs, more carriers and more MagStripe Reader/Printer hardware than all our competitors combined. In fact, ePN Mobile was the first mainstream payment gateway to offer mobile wireless transaction processing at swiped rates with the introduction of ePNMobile back in the Fall of 2000, supporting a clip-on MagStripe Reader for the Palm® Pilot VIIx.
Today, ePN offers two different types of Mobile Processing Solutions:
- Dedicated Wireless Terminals – devices manufactured specifically to allow merchants the freedom to “cut the wires” and process transactions freely. These devices are committed to a specific network and carrier (CDMA, GPRS, etc.) and offer good coverage. They differ in size and functionality, but all offer the ability to accept swiped transactions with a magstripe reader and to print a receipt. Any of these devices can be added to a ePN account which provides full reporting on all activity.
- Merchant-Owned Cell Phones/PDAs – Merchants that own Java® ME (J2ME) compatible cell phones and/or PDAs with Web-capability can install ePNMobile to their device from within the ePN Merchant Support Center. This solution requires a minimum of technical-savvy, but has proven to be the ultimate solution not only for merchants who do not want to carry multiple devices, but also for fleets who need centralized control and reporting of the processing through their devices.
- As with all services available through Merchant Services Minnesota, merchants can mix-and-match any combination of solutions through a single merchant account.
- Multiple Processing Options — Use with Your Existing Cell Phone or PDA (requires a card reader and printer attached via bluetooth for swiped rates or manually key in card numbers) or Utilize a Dedicated Wireless Terminal
- Process Payments Away from the Traditional Office — in the Car, at a Trade Show, at a Customer’s Home, or Wherever the Need Arises
- Transactions Stored Online, Not On Your Phone. If Phone is Lost or Stolen, Transactions are Secure.
- Mix and Match Merchant Services Minnesota Solutions to Accommodate Your Business Model
