Quickly accept payments from the palm of your hand with PlaceFull

Consumers are spending more time accessing information from their smartphones – on the bus, in their bed, and at work. According to eMarketer, : “In 2014, US adults will spend 23.0% more time with mobile on an average day than in 2013. This year, mobile will pull far ahead, to 2 hours 51 minutes per day.”

Why the fixation? Because it’s easy. In just a couple of clicks, your problem is resolved. Given that consumers are glued to their devices, it’s more important than ever to offer them flexibility to buy. Publishing real-time listings with PlaceFull’s booking service gives your customers the ability to book online 24/7. Before today, you could take bookings online (on your website) and in-store (with the PlaceFull point of sale system). You can now take payments on the go as well with the PlaceFull app and credit card reader. Simply download the free app and plug the reader into the headphone jack of your iPhone or iPad. This is great for service providers (plumbers, home inspectors, painters, etc.) or businesses that have a physical location but often travel for events.

How to process payments with the PlaceFull app

First things first, download the app in the App Store and log in to your PlaceFull account. If you don’t have an existing PlaceFull account, you will not be able to log in. If you’re an existing PlaceFull merchant and would like your own credit card reader, please email us at help@placefull.com
