MerchantWare® Cayan Mobile Provides a Free Application To All Merchant Customers With No Gateway or Cellular Access Fees. By David J. Carter

Working with Cayan Merchant Ware Mobile allows business owners many attractive options such as chargeback protection, next day funding, regular pricing, no caps on processing volume, real customer service, and the additional security and peace of mind that comes with working with a processor that understands the credit card processing industry from top to bottom.

Merchants are enabled to conveniently process real-time credit card transactions on the road from any location connected to a Wi-Fi, Edge or 3G network.

Mobile Payments

Cayan, formerly Merchant Warehouse provides the ability to be able to accept payments out in the field.  Let’s say you’re working a Trade Show, or one of your sales representatives is visiting a customer in person.  In that case you can obtain a tablet/smartphone card-reader (aka slider) for the Genius system which allows you to securely accept credit cards or debit cards on the go.  As long as you have Wi-Fi, EDGE or Cellular Data (3G network) available it’s just as if you were using a hardwired unit in your store.  You slide the card, fill in the amount, and pass your phone or tablet to the client so they can sign with their fingertip (or enter their PIN number)!  There is even an area where they can add a tip, if they’re so inclined.

The customer data is never stored on your device; rather it is encrypted, tokenized and sent securely so that even if the data were intercepted it would be completely unreadable.

The Advantages

  • You can Swipe or Key-in the information
  • Compatible with most Apple or Android Smartphones &Tablets with Wi-Fi or 3G capability
  • Includes a Virtual Terminal to key in the data if the card is unreadable
  • FREE application – no need for an expensive wireless terminal
  • No gateway or cellular access fees
  • No contract, termination or annual fees
  • Handles both credit and debit cards

Fixed or mobile it has the same advantages

MerchantWARE Mobile, a FREE virtual point-of-sale software application for Android, Blackberry, iPhone, and Windows is exactly what you need.  It is a PA-DSS validated and fully web-based, offering a transaction processing solution over a secure internet connection.  That means you can work in any environment where you can get a connection to the web.

More importantly, it gets PCI compliance out of your hands or “out-of-scope”.  Using a Transport Platform means the customer’s data is safe and away from your point-of-sale (POS) system, providing enhanced security through SSL, tokenization and end-to-end encryption.  Transport.web enables you to operate your online store within PCI DSS regulations without incurring any additional costs.

It accepts credit cards, signature-based or PIN-based debit cards, EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer), and Gift/Loyalty cards.  It processes regular and recurring transactions such as voids, refunds, tip adjustment, and repeat sales securely using tokens, so if the data is illegally intercepted after it leaves you, it is completely useless.  It also eliminates on-site storage headaches for the merchant.

It supports batch processing and multiple user login access for enhanced account and user management as well as real-time reporting, sorting and filtering options for advanced transaction reporting.  The in-house technical support will see to any difficulties you may have and there is 24/7 emergency support for you.

  • FREE application – no need for an expensive wireless terminal
  • No gateway or cellular access fees
  • No contract, termination or annual fees
  • Supports most mobiles devices

Founded in 1998, Cayan was set up to help businesses process transactions economically, without the high expenses that predominated at the time.  They sought to provide the ability to purchase a credit card machine, open a merchant account, and process credit card sales while providing superior customer support.  This was unheard of at the time, and caused a cascade effect that has changed the industry.

Over the last few years many new methods of paying for goods and services have evolved.  Whether it’s conventional credit cards, signature capture, EMV, debit cards, NFC smartphones, QR codes, PayPal, eWallets or Bitcoins makes no difference.  If there is a way to pay, people are going to start using it, and a future-proof system needs to have a way to accommodate it.  Value-added offers such as Loyalty and Reward programs have sprung up everywhere; everyone is climbing on the bandwagon with new ways to enhance the selling and purchasing experience.

As Cayan says:

Our vision is to revolutionize the payments solution industry by providing innovative technology solutions and transparent services to simplify and increase the flexibility and value associated with the merchant-customer payment process and experience.

  • BBB Rates them at A+, the highest possible score
  • To a casual observer Cayan seems interested in giving back to the community. Their policy tells the story that “Each year our team raises tens of thousands of dollars for local and national charities they support and nominate.  Best Buddies, Pine Street Inn, Cradles to Crayons, Greater Boston Food Bank, Jumpstart, Habitat for Humanity, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Mothers Against Drunk Driving are just a few of the hundreds of non-profits our team has supported to date.”

They continue by relating how they create charity teams on a quarterly basis which work in outreach and initiatives to raise cash for specific non-profit organizations.  “Our current partner,” they say, “is the Wounded Warrior Project, whose mission is – “To honor and empower wounded warriors”.  For example, all fundraising efforts in Q2 2013 will assist Wounded Warriors with their purpose of:

  • Raising awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members;
  • Helping injured service members aid and assist each other; and
  • Providing unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.

Products and Services

In 1998 Cayan made the ability to use credit cards accessible to many small businesses formerly kept out by the immense costs involved.  They set the new standard by getting expenses down to a manageable level that knocked the credit industry on its ear.  They’re set to do it again with their current products and services.
