NetSecure’s Kudos, which launched back in June as Canada’s first mobile credit card reader, is apparently (says the PR) the only solution in the Canadian market that doesn’t have any monthly or hidden fees. Credit cards are processed via a dongle, sort of like Square, that connects via the headphone jack, and is compatible with all the major smartphones, as well as laptops and desktops.
Benefits of Kudos include:
- Accept credit card payments on the spot via smartphones (iOS, Android and BlackBerry)
- Full end-to-end encryption ensuring security for sensitive data
- Email receipts, receive funds immediately, and receive all the benefits of a full-service merchant account
