Pivotal Payments Releases Mobile Payment System for BlackBerry, Android and iOS Devices

After being in the credit card industry for 10 years I have seen a ton of different types of “Boxes” or credit card terminals/units. A few years ago we started to see contactless or NFC payments via NFC enabled credit cards and or dongles or key chains, this technology really never started to catch on until a year or so ago. When Research In Motion introduced the BlackBerry Bold 9900 with NFC a lot of people were like umm…NFC what??? Well now a lot of people including myself have started to adopt this “new” technology in our day to day lives. Back on October 2nd NetSecure Payments Inc released Pivotal Payments Mobile Payment System for BlackBerry, Android and iOS Devices.

With this application you can process credit cards right on you device right on the fly. Pivotal Payments is offering their “PivotalMOBILE” which is a card reader that attaches to your smartphone similar to Square and PayPal’s PayPal Here. You need to know a few things before you decided to jump on this “deal”. First off nothing in this world is free someone somewhere has to pay for whatever it is. So to see Pivotal charging $74 for their card reader is GREAT! Second, Pivotal is offering a better rate the Square. Square charges 2.75% where as Pivotal is only (I say only but…) 2.74%. Now Square does offer an interesting “plan” you can pay $275 per month or the 2.75%, if you go with the $275 per month you do NOT have to pay the 2.75% credit card processing fee. With the PivotalMOBILE card reader you can accept Visa, MasterCard or American Express.
