One thought on “3 Android Apps to Accept Payments Anywhere”

  1. I really dislike how slow the new version of Pay Anywhere is. I run a business and to get to each window it takes forever. The new version really doesn’t work for salons very well. I use an iPad for payanywhere. The new signature is a pain. Sometimes people don’t want to tip and if you forget to cancel that out you have to go back and credit them. To many steps. I do love the fact you can itemize things. But I wish there was less windows per transaction. The other thing is that I can be in the middle of a transaction and the program will kick me out and start all over again, making it so the customer can’t sign, tip ect.
