Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 25, 2011
Inner Fence, maker of Credit Card Terminal, is now shipping Credit Card Reader for iPad. The Apple-authorized hardware accessory allows merchants to swipe credit cards and is free to new Credit Card Terminal merchants.
“We’re already seeing high demand for our iPad app—more than twice that of our Android app. Small business owners find that iPads fit the way they work perfectly,” says Derek Del Conte, CEO of Inner Fence. “Adding a reader transforms iPads into even more powerful small business tools.”
Credit Card Terminal is the leading credit card point of sale app available for Apple’s iPhone and iPad, as featured in Apple’s “Office” prime-time television campaign. Until now, merchants could only perform keyed transactions using the app, but now they may use the new Credit Card Reader accessory to perform swiped transactions as well.
The Credit Card Reader accessory attaches to the iPad dock connector. It is designed for speedy transactions and high volume with a high-accuracy read head and sturdy construction. The accessory was tested and certified by Apple to be compatible with iPad as part of the Made for iPad program.
Swiped transactions are advantageous because they are much faster and less error-prone. Merchants may also be able to qualify for lower rates under the terms of their merchant account agreement.
Inner Fence is providing a free Credit Card Reader for iPad when activating a new account. Additional units are available at http://www.innerfence.com for $79.
Credit Card Readers for iPad are shipping immediately and support iPad and iPad 2.
