The company this week has released a series of updates to Sage Mobile Payments, its mobile payments platform, developed to Payment Card Industry (PCI) specifications. Highlights of the updated product, Sage Mobile Payment 2.0, include changes to the user interface design that is, shall we say, a bit more merchant-friendly; features that allow for signature capture on screens with a touch capability; a function that calculates tips or taxes automatically; and an associated free mobile application that can be downloaded after the mobile merchant account is activated.
The software delivers receipts to both the customer and retailer digitally via e-mail.
Small businesses that already use a Sage Merchant ID account can add mobile payments support to their existing payment service relationship at the same processing rate as their other point-of-sale transactions, according to Sage.
The Sage mobile payment is compatible with up to 400 different mobile devices running on both the Apple iOS and the Google Android platform.
