A List of Portable Credit Card Processors

Florence Carpenter

With roughly 29% of American adults making cash-free purchases on a typical week according to Pew Research, investing in a portable card processor for your small business is essential. 

However, how do you know which portable credit card processor is the best fit for your business? To help you narrow down your options, we’ve done some research into the top five options in terms of ease of use, affordability, and software integration. Here are some of our top picks.

1. Square

For small businesses looking for a relatively affordable option, Square’s card processor is particularly easy to set up and promises a user-friendly experience.

They accept major credit cards and provide both iOS and Android compatibility, though their transaction fees might not be the cheapest out there. Their strict security measures also ensure that all your customers’ transactions are well-encrypted. 

2. Shopify

While Shopify is well known for its online retail platform, they also offer in-person solutions with mobile card readers and compatible apps. Their processors are great to use for pop-up stores for small business owners or to test the success of local sales. 

Although you can benefit from their integrated platform, their fees are on the expensive side of the scale. 

3. PayPal Here

Another popular name in the payments industry, PayPal is one of the few options that enable both businesses and individuals to accept payments. In terms of hardware, PayPal Here’s offerings particularly shine. Their mobile credit card processors have Bluetooth compatibility for added flexibility.

Their devices are also relatively affordable, and they don’t charge monthly fees. However, they lack next-day funding. 

4. Intuit GoPayment 

For those seeking QuickBooks integration, Intuit GoPayment provides seamless integration. Their service allows users to accept cash, checks, and even Paypal payments through the mobile app. 

One major perk is that managing payroll, inventory, and accounting is even easier if you can sync your mobile payment system. On the other hand, users need to pay higher monthly costs and will have to make do without a contactless payment reader.

As customers start relying more heavily on credit and debit cards in addition to mobile payment options, investing in a mobile processor is one of the smartest business decisions you can make. To gain more detailed insights into choosing the best portable credit card processor for your brand, feel free to read more about processing services for cards.
