Make iPhone Credit Card Processing Simple With MagTek®


Many business owners are looking for a flexible and simple way to process credit card payments. While purchasing a traditional payment terminal is one option, mobile solutions are quickly becoming increasingly popular. Developments in Android and iPhone credit card processing technology mean that businesses can accept payments anywhere, anytime they need to.

What is the MagTek® Card Reader?

The MagTek ® card reader is a small device that transforms your Android smartphone, iPhone or iPad into a payment terminal. The card reader plugs into your existing device’s headphone jack, allowing you to process secure transactions wherever you go. Using your phone’s 3G or Wifi network, you can either swipe the customer’s card using the reader, or manually key in card details. All customers can be emailed a copy of their invoice if desired, or you may choose to print a receipt on a portable printer.

MagTek makes Android and iPhone credit card processing simple, integrating seamlessly with the VirtualMerchant Mobile app. You’ll be provided with your own secure account to begin processing payments. The app’s interface is user-friendly, making it easy for your staff to enter payment information and have customers sign on-screen for their credit card purchases. VirtualMerchant Mobile also features the ability to capture transaction data, such as addresses, purchase descriptions, invoice numbers and more.

Most importantly, MagTek is secure. The MagTek card-reader authenticator makes use of Magnesafe Security Architecture to protect customer data via instant dynamic encryption, tokenization and authentication.

Who is the MagTek Card Reader Ideal For?

This Android or iPhone credit card processing system is ideal for anyone who needs total flexibility when it comes to accepting payments. The following are some of the most common scenarios in which we see customers choosing the MagTek solution:

  • Businesses who offer mobile services at their customers’ location, and need to bring a payment solution with them wherever they go. MagTek can transform their existing phone into a payment terminal.
  • Businesses who require the ability to accept credit card payments in their retail location without being physically tied to the limits of a wired or short-range wireless payment terminal.
  • Businesses who want to provide customers with an instant emailed receipt or invoice following their transaction.
  • Businesses who need to add additional payment terminals during peak seasons without the major expense of a traditional terminal.
