    So im pretty sure everyone has seen the Iphone commercial, allowing you to run Credit Cards over your phone and ship packages out.
    Now my question is does anyone know of any word of this coming to blackberry?

    I'm pretty sure I saw an app for this at App World. You must have a merchant account with mobile capability I'm sure

    I think it would be great for someone who runs a small business. For exampl my cousin is a photographer. Let's say he does a wedding and they pay him as he drops off the pictures. It would be great for him to ring them up on his cell phone as he is exchanging pictures.

    Isn't this the same as giving your Credit Card info over the phone or online?

    It's no worse than paying for a meal by letting a waiter/waitress take your credit card in the back of the restaurant to run it.

    Unfortunately paying with plastic these days is a leap of faith no matter how you do it.

    Thats all true. Its a great idea to be able to do that if you have a small business. But i have found apps that let you get into peoples phone via blue tooth with out having them accept you. What if you loose you phone is my info safe on it? Security is the only thing i dont like about this. Its still too easy to get info off of peoples phones.

    IIRC the blackberry is one of the most secure phones you can buy...even our pres is using a modified one.

    I would imagine that the info is not stored on your phone; usually the info on credit card terminals is processed by 3rd party companies that provide merchant services for multiple clients.

    The terminal is just a gateway to get credit card info to one of these service providers.

    Again, there is always an inherent risk with using credit/debit cards because even these 3rd party companies get hacked. (google 'CAMS alert')

    There are a couple of options for this- although none are as cool as the iphone appears to be. And I say "appears" because I haven't tried it and can't attest to how fluid or simple it is to navigate. Having said that, here are my thoughs

    1. You can do it via bell mobile in canada, but it is not availble for verizon.

    MobileSyrup.com - Canadian Mobile News & Reviews - Cell phones and Accessories

    2. You can set up paypal button on a website you create and just navigate to it via the web browser and input the info as long as you have internet signal.

    3. And this one may actually be really cool. MasterCard participating bank customers will be able to offer Mobile MasterCard MoneySend(TM) P2P payments to their customers- however it won't be out until later this month.

    I bet if you put a phone call into verizon about it they would have a mobile platform just for credit cards. I would also be willing to bet that you will pay a pretty penny for the service as well. Personally I use the paypal option as it works very well for my select customers that prefer to pay with a credit card.

    You actually get charged a larger amount for a manual transaction versus a swiped card. Although it is usually not much, if you did a lot of these transactions you'd be better using another platform to process credit cards.

    You could get set up w/ a credit card processor such as Mercury Payment Systems, that has a simple interface that you can run from a laptop and actually get a MSR card reader.

    Yes we all saw the iPhone commercial with the credit card app.
    There is a BB credit card App by ChargeBerry that is compatible with Authorize.net & PayPal Payflow Pro payment gateways. It works on Curve 8900, Bold, Storm & Tour. It requires no reader, no swipes, no cables. Hope this helps : )

    I had a 9900 phone, and was able to accept CC. but when I upgraded to a 9810 that phone there is no software for it that works. Does this Blackcard or Chargeberry work on a 9810?

    Do those apps need NFC to operate? You might be better off reviewing the software for requirements or asking the developers. Also you responded initially (06-10-2012, 09:06 AM) in a thread that had last activity on 12-22-2009, 06:47 PM. Do you think any of the original thread participants would be around to see it?
