Payfirma Launches Canada’s First Blackberry Mobile Payment App
Blackberry users can now swipe and accept credit cards right on their phones as Payfirma continues to roll out mobile payment applications designed for Canadians by Canadians
The Company is proud to announce the release of its Blackberry Mobile Payment App for Canadian merchants to accept credit card on their Blackberry devices instantly.
Anyone with a Payfirma merchant account can now accept and process credit card transactions in real-time on their Blackberry devices. The application is free to download from the Blackberry App World or on Payfirma’s website and is compatible with most versions of the Blackberry device.
Payfirma’s payment apps let any business or consumer accept all major credit cards securely on Blackberry & iPhone. Users can swipe or manually input a credit card, authorize the transaction within 5 seconds and email a receipt of the transaction directly from the app to the customers. All transaction data is encrypted and fully secure through Payfirma’s PCI compliant facilities.
Merchants and developers can also integrate directly to Payfirma’s mobile settlement and authorization gateway, which enable any mobile application to add a hosted, secure mobile checkout solution.
“The next release of our mobile apps will enable users to link their settled funds from the phone directly to an NFC chip within the phone itself,” continues Gokturk, “enabling the smartphone to be used as an e-wallet and using it to pay for goods and services wherever NFC devices are enabled.”
The app is offered for free and users must have a valid Canadian merchant account to process live transactions. Opening a merchant account with Payfirma is easy, and can be opened directly within the app itself, or on the Company’s website.
