    I heard that you can use your mobile phone as a credit card machine? I've read somewhere that mobile phones and tablets can be used for payment processing. What you basically need is a card reader and mobile app, do you know where i can get one? I have a small online business and i think this kind of payment processing suits us well.

    Most of the solutions out there are intended to swipe a card but if you business is on-line you may want to check out http://myvirtualmerchant.com You could still manually input using something like Square, the most popular payment system, but it is cumbersome.

    Thanks for the link. I also saw a mobile credit card processing solution from Tsys Mobile Credit Card Processing, Reader & Mobile Payment and I think It's what I need as of the moment, I'm currently reading reviews and comparing, Thought I might give it a try since its payment packages fit by budget.
