Wireless Credit Card Processing Over the past decade, businesses have become highly mobile. Mobile merchants such as message therapists, limo drivers, home service companies and vendors at craft fairs, roadside stands, festivals and trade shows are now able to accept payment instantly via their mobile phone and a portable instant swiping machine. Previous, mobile merchants were restricted to accepting payments either by cash or check. Cash is not always convenient. Many consumers are in the habit of paying for purchases with a debit or credit card and often do not carry sufficient cash to pay for an impulse purchase.

Savvy merchants know that customers always purchase more when they have the option of using a credit card. Without the ability to accept credit cards, merchants lose sales. Business owners are often hesitant to accept personal checks due to the high risk of fraud. Now mobile merchants have another option: wireless credit card processing. Wireless credit card processing removes the boundaries from business. No matter, if you are at a trade fair, festival, flea market, art show, job site or luncheon with a client, the advent of mobile technology means your are always ready to make a sale, turning any situation into a revenue making opportunity.

A leader in the development of Internet technology since its inception, Tej Kohli founded Grafix Software, a privately held company in 1990 to offer turnkey solutions to E-Commerce challenges. Headquartered in San Jose, Costa Rica, Grafix Software is known around the world for its technology and payment gateway services. Commenting on the rapidly developing technology of mobile money, Tej Kohli stated, Developers of mobile telephony and payment applications are coming together to change the way world is shifting to mobile and in some of the developing countries there are people who are starting as smart mobile users instead of PC users. This creates a huge demand for companies to take business to mobile. New collaborative approaches are being launched in established markets in the U.S. that effectively turn phones into credit cards. This is real disruptive technology, changing the way that people think about established processes, and at the same time bringing a whole new group of customers and prospects into the market. The new ideas and demands that come with them will continue that process of disruption and change. Whats more is that collaboration is going to be global. Countries that used to be referred to as emerging markets have now arrived. Other developing economies are taking their place. Old certainties about who leads the world in innovation are about to be shattered. No-one can be sure where the next solution will come from, but developers in South Korea and Brazil are as likely to avail themselves of the opportunities as those in Silicon Valley
