Default Taking payments with CC on my Blackberry.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
I'm a mobile PC repair technician. As I call to customers and fix their PC problems they pay me. Mostly by cheques.
I'm thinking of using my 8320 to take payments using an online merchant account, I already have one with Worldpay but need to enable to payment processing via their website.

Anybody doing this already?

Any gotchas I should look out for?

Thanks
d

Unless you are processing the CC payments via your web browser, I have not seen an app for that, there could be one out there.

Thanks, looks nice. However no mention of prices which usually means if you need to ask that you cannot afford it

Just ask, I am sure he is reasonable. It requires proprietary hardware however.

You should be able to us any merchant that offers a virtual terminal. You can the process via the Internet in the BlackBerry Browser or Opera.

I don't know if they support companies outside of the US but it may be worth looking at AirCharge:
Wireless Credit Card Processing, Merchant Accounts, Wireless Credit Card Machines
