How Smartphone Credit Card Processing Works
With smartphone credit card processing, you can use your smartphone the same way you would use a terminal or POS system. All you’ll need is a specialized credit card processing app in conjunction with a mobile card reader or swiper. The credit card processing app will work similarly to a POS system while the mobile swiper will connect to a headphone jack to actually swipe (or dip) credit, debit, or EMV chip cards.
