RedFin POS, a leading provider of secure payment applications and payment gateway solutions, has launched SharkSwipe, a mobile app that allows for mobile transactions utilizing the super-compact, Bluetooth MSR/Chip & PIN SharkSwipe device. The free app is available in iOS and Android users.
SharkSwipe leverages a Bluetooth card reader that accepts MSR, and will be able to process EMV chip cards as processor certifications are completed. It's fast. It's fierce. It's at the top of the food chain in mobile payments.
"SharkSwipe mobile app creates the maximum in customer experience utilizing industry innovative technology. This top-shelf mobile tool provides more convenience and value-adds to merchants at a price point most can afford”, says Frank Bocchino, RedFin's marketing representative. "
RedFin POS incorporates Bluetooth peripherals rather than traditional third-party audio jack devices for its mPOS environment. We feel this promotes a secure and more reliable transaction process.
"When OS updates occur, the audio jack communication protocol can become affected, often rendering the peripheral device useless until an update is provided. Also mobile phones with cases will often prevent a secure connection with audio jack dependent devices. With SharkSwipe, merchants are able to leverage the flexibility and convenience of a Bluetooth device at a price point comparable with audio jack devices," adds Bocchino.
