Spindle Introduces Low-Cost Payment Processing and Merchant Boarding Services
New Pricing Model Offers Straightforward, Competitive Rates for Mobile Point-of-Sale
SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 02/23/15 -- Spindle, Inc. (OTCQB: SPDL), a leading provider of mobile commerce solutions, today unveiled its new low-cost payment processing and onboarding services for merchants. Available through Spindle's YowzaMerchant.com portal, merchants can sign up online and receive all the necessary approvals and back end services to begin accepting secure credit card payments in approximately ten minutes. Customers that sign up for the mobile program will also receive a no-cost credit card reader that attaches to their smartphone.
Spindle's Yowza Mobile POS payment processing rates are among the lowest in the nation. Merchants pay just $9.99 per month for the service, and just 1.75 percent and 25 cents for every swiped transaction through the mobile app. Keyed transactions are only 2.89 percent and 25 cents in addition to the $9.99 monthly fee. Spindle offers the Yowza mPOS acceptance app on both iOS and Android platforms in their respective app stores at no cost. In addition, Spindle will continue offering competitive rates for ecommerce and virtual terminal solutions, as well as an open API set for developers and ISVs.
"Our new pricing structure offers significantly lower rates than what is typically available in the mPOS market. Merchants that process more than one thousand dollars per month in transactions will see considerable savings right away under this program," said Bill Clark, Spindle's chief executive officer. "With Spindle's new boarding process, merchants can get approved and be processing in minutes. We have priced our service to be attractive to merchants who use these services on a regular basis and want to reduce the cost of accepting credit cards payments, while utilizing a secure and reliable mobile phone-based application."
Low processing rates are available through the Yowza suite of services, which includes a richly functional tablet POS platform that supports brick-and-mortar merchants in the retail and restaurant industries. The solution integrates with the full range of Yowza mobile marketing services, creating a unified commerce platform for state-of-the-art POS, payment processing, and mobile consumer engagement. The latest Yowza offering, a Yowza mobile consumer shopping app, is in the final certification stage and is scheduled to launch in the next few weeks.
