MobileMerchant works with an array of mobile device types -- regardless of carrier -- to ensure freedom of choice. Setup is quick and easy; the business user simply downloads the App to their smartphone, and enters account configuration credentials provided by Elavon. The solution provides full security and support for Chip and PIN cards, magnetic stripe cards and card-not-present transactions. Cardholder data is securely captured and encrypted using a Bluetooth-connected PIN pad, ensuring that no information is captured and stored by the smartphone device. A transaction receipt is sent to the customer by email or text message. A secure and easy-to-use online data management system offers users access to credit and debit card transaction data. Users can also monitor and analyse card transactions, manage user rights, and even run transactions using a secure Virtual Terminal application contained on the portal.

MobileMerchant is an extension of Elavon’s full portfolio of payment solutions, and is built on 20 years of experience delivering flexible and secure payment solutions to more than one million businesses around the world.
