Mobile POS devices have changed how and where businesses can operate. Not only that, they’ve let business improve their customer service, making those long missions to find the closest ATM a thing of the past. ZipZap is an mPOS solution that only requires a smartphone, card reader and internet connection to facilitate card processing. Let’s take a look at eight great things you never thought ZipZap could do.

ZipZap works through your smart device

Setting up ZipZap is simple, all you need is the ZipZap app, a smartphone and the card reader to get started. Not only can you use your smartphone to receive payments, you can install the app on any tablet too. Just make sure you have an internet connection on any device you choose to install the ZipZap app on.

Continue trading during load shedding

Because you’ll be using your mobile device, a battery-powered card reader and an internet connection, you’ll be operating separately from the main power supply. Just remember to keep your ZipZap card reader and smartphone or tablet fully charged.

The app is free and the card reader is inexpensive

Downloading the ZipZap app is completely free, the only setup costs are for the card reader, which is itself quite reasonable.

It only takes a few days to set up

After you’ve downloaded the app to your smartphone, applied and paid for a card reader via the website, you’ll be able to start trading once the card reader has been delivered to you. This usually takes a couple of days, depending on whether you have all the required documentation when applying.

ZipZap sends receipts via email or SMS

You use the ZipZap app to input the amount chargeable, and insert your client’s card into the card reader (which connects to the app via Bluetooth). Once the payment has been run, the app will give you the option to send your client their receipt by email or SMS. You can view your entire transaction history online

One thing ZipZap lets you do, that’s not always possible with traditional card machines, is view your transaction history online. It makes keeping track of your accounts easier and it’s also free.

ZipZap is bank agnostic

ZipZap accepts bank cards from all banks, so you can accept payment from all your clients without the risk of their bank not being supported. Your commercial bank account can be with any bank too.

You can connect ZipZap on your phone to your computer via USB connection

If you’d prefer to view your transaction history on your Windows PC, you can connect your Windows smartphone to your PC via USB to trade using ZipZap and access data on the app.
