Today there are many ways to accept payments, and one of the most common and fastest growing is through the use of mobile payments, especially for small businesses. But the term mobile payments can mean different things depending on who you ask.
When we talk about mobile payments, we typically mean providing a small business with the freedom and flexibility to take payments on the go using a mobile or wireless credit card reader, all while offering no contract and flat rate monthly pricing.
This option is incredibly popular in the service industry including businesses such as plumbers, electricians, HVAC specialists, towing companies and more. They’re also a great option for companies that travel for trade shows, events or offer delivery services.

If you asked your customers what mobile payments are, they’ll more than likely answer that it is the ability to pay using their smartphone or watch. This is accomplished by using a mobile wallet, which is technology that allows your customer to store their credit card and debit card information right on their device.
Then, using NFC (near field communication) technology built into the wallet through services such as Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and Google Pay, your customer can just hold their device near the credit card reader to pay for goods and services.
In fact, all card readers offered through Wind River come built with the ability to take mobile wallet payments.
For many small businesses, mobile payments simply means the ability to take payments anywhere and everywhere. For the businesses that don’t have a traditional point-of-sale, lower processing volume, or have employees out in the field, you need the ability to take a payments whether you’re in a downtown conference center or wrapping up a service call in your customer’s backyard.
