Free Mobile Payment App and Hardware Compatible with All Apple Devices; Android and BlackBerry Software Coming Soon

Troy, Mich. – North American Bancard (NAB) further solidified Pay Anywhere as the only true “no compromise” credit card reader for mobile payments by making it fully compatible with the iPhone 4, iPod touch, iPad and iPad 2, via a new reader that plugs directly into standard audio jacks.

The new, free Pay Anywhere audio jack reader joins the Pay Anyway dock reader for iPhone 3G and 3GS which hit the mobile payment market in January.  Like the dock unit, the audio jack reader is also small, lightweight and highly durable.  It comes with a carrying case and lanyard, making Pay Anywhere ideal for merchants conducting business on the go.  Pay Anywhere also uses the highest level of encryption, fully secure from end-to-end and data is never stored on the reader.

Pay Anywhere launched in January and has steadily been gaining traction in the mobile payment market ever since.  A top-ranked App in the iTunes mobile credit card processing space, Pay Anywhere is preferred by merchants for its user-friendly application, affordability, security and unmatched 24/7 customer service support.

Pay Anywhere is backed by NAB, an industry leader in credit card processing, which currently processes more than $1 billion in electronic transactions a month for more than 100,000 merchants nationwide.  NAB’s Pay Anywhere software and hardware are free, compared to other card readers sold for $75 - $195.  In addition, there are no setup fees, no application fees, no monthly service fees and no monthly minimums required.

“The Pay Anywhere technology, including the new audio jack reader, is top-notch, but what makes the product truly stand apart from the competition is that it is backed by North American Bancard’s 20 years of credit card processing experience. In addition to all of the bells and whistles, we’re offering consumers convenience, affordability and security, three things that are crucial to running a successful business,” said Marc Gardner, NAB founder and president.The Pay Anywhere application and card reader accessories are available now for all Apple devices, and will soon be available for Android and BlackBerry mobile customers.

NAB is currently taking pre-orders for the Android and Blackberry Pay Anywhere card readers.  Getting started with a Pay Anywhere account is easy.  Apple users download the free app from the App Store, and the appropriate free card reader device will be delivered directly to each customer.
