Pocket credit card reader takes sales mobile

Receiving credit card payments on the road — whether it's door-to-door or on a trade show floor — can be a frustrating task. Old-fashioned mechanical readers (known as addressographs) are insanely bulky, and leave you with a mass of paper to contend with at the end of each day. Dedicated electronic card readers are generally bulkier and often require a power source and an internet connection to function. These issues make the ProPay MicroSecure Card Reader look pretty inviting.
