PayAnywhere has announced that its PayAnywhere Credit Card Readers are now available nationwide at Best Buy. Best Buy will carry both versions of the PayAnywhere readers – the traditional PayAnywhere Credit Card Reader, which reads magnetic stripe payment cards, and the new PayAnywhere 3-in-1 Credit Card Reader, an all-in-one solution that accepts magnetic stripe and EMV chip cards, as well as NFC contactless payments including Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay.
“We’re extremely excited about this partnership between PayAnywhere and Best Buy,” Marc Gardner, founder, president and CEO of North American Bancard Holdings, said. “By offering our innovative readers at Best Buy, business owners of all kinds and sizes can easily accept chip cards, which are more secure than traditional magstripe cards.”
PayAnywhere card readers plug in to the audio jack of a smartphone or tablet, turning Android and Apple devices into mobile point-of-sale solutions (mPOS) that allow merchants to accept all major card brands – Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and PayPal.
PayAnywhere is helping new merchants get started by offering them up to $2,000 in free processing for the PayAnywhere Credit Card Reader, and up to $5,000 in free processing for the 3-in-1 Credit Card Reader when they open a new account.
The Credit Card Reader retails for $9.99 and the 3-in-1 Credit Card Reader for $39.99. The PayAnywhere app works with both readers and is free in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
