Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
Cardready International a leading merchant services company offering comprehensive transaction and payment processing solutions for businesses around the globe, recently launched a new suite of wireless transaction services for business.
From fast food restaurants to transportation providers and trade show vendors, wireless transaction acceptance is essential for most modern businesses. Clients and customers appreciate the convenience of payment processing on the go. A March 2009 report from the American Bankers Association estimated that there are 10,000 payment card transactions made every second around the world.
Previously, wireless transaction processing has been a slow and cumbersome process – wait times of 20 seconds or more per order were not uncommon. Wireless technology has progressed rapidly, creating new markets for credit card transactions that had been unthinkable just a few years ago. With the latest technology and software solutions from Cardready International mobile merchants are now able to carry wireless terminals and pay lower discount rates for swiped versus keyed transactions and receive approvals in as little as two or three seconds.
“It’s hard to imagine now, but for years many merchants did not have a safe, secure and cost effective way to accept credit cards,” explains Jim Berland, founder and President of Cardready International. According to a recent Intuit Small Business survey, 55 percent of the U.S.’ 27 million small businesses don’t accept credit cards. Approximately 15 million small businesses in the United States miss out on a potential $100 billion in sales annually. That works out to almost $7,000 in lost sales per business every year.
“Cardready International already offers advanced software solutions and terminal configurations for every size business and can easily integrate point-of-sale systems already in use, or provide new systems,” according to Jim Berland, founder and President of Cardready, “but today we are very excited to improve upon our already impressive portfolio of wireless transaction solutions with a suite of new wireless processing service solutions for business.”
