If at any point you’ve found yourself scratching your chin and racking your brain trying to determine if the ability to accept credit card payments by mobile device is anything that businesses outside of a slim minority could ever take advantage of, reset your brain and have a look below.
You want to talk about a merchant that spends a majority of their time “in the field,” look no further than the average landscaper. They’re literally out there, stomping through knee-high weeds to beautify our surroundings. Who better to take advantage of a mobile merchant account than a landscaper? And what better way for a landscaper to appeal to their customer’s desire for convenience than to have the ability to process a credit card payment through their trusty mobile device?
More often than not, the guy in the work boots who comes over to knock down a few walls and rebuild your living room is the same guy who does the books at night. Equipping contractors with the ability to process credit card payments in the field can be a lucrative venture for the enterprising developer.
Perhaps no better industry exemplifies the need to be able to process credit card payments remotely than this. Because as Murphy’s Law dictates it, nobody ever has their checkbook handy when the car breaks down.
