TROY, Mich. & SAN GORGONIO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council (http://www.gssgc.org) and PayAnywhere (www.PayAnywhere.com), a leader in mobile point of sale (POS) solutions, today announced the PayAnywhere app and credit card reader have been selected as the mobile credit card processing solution of choice to support Girl Scouts’ product sales.
Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council serves more than 11,000 girls in Riverside and San Bernardino counties, with the dedicated support of 5,000 adult volunteers. Girls participating in fall product sales and cookie sales will be given the opportunity to utilize the PayAnywhere mobile credit card reader and mobile app to accept credit and debit card payments. They will be provided free training and 24/7 customer service from PayAnywhere.
The PayAnywhere mobile credit card reader is a small accessory that plugs into the audio jack of smartphones and tablets, transforming them into mobile payment terminals that can swipe credit cards to securely process payments. Used together with the free PayAnywhere mobile app, the reader instantly transforms an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, most Android smartphones or tablets, or BlackBerry smartphones into a powerful mobile point of sale terminal. Robust reporting combined with the most complete set of mobile payment features available, secure technology to protect customer financial data, and around the clock customer support, make PayAnywhere the most comprehensive mobile payment solution available on the market today.
"After extensive testing, competitive review and due diligence, our council has selected PayAnywhere as the mobile payment solution for our Fall Sale and the ever popular cookie sales,” said Elizabeth Locke-Thomas, vice president of product sales and retail for Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio. “We’ve tried other solutions but none were able to deliver the deep level of reporting and comprehensive customer service and support that we expect to get from PayAnywhere. Utilizing mobile payment technology will help our girls achieve even greater success by enabling them to offer their customers easy payment options. PayAnywhere will also give them valuable experience using the latest technology in a real-world setting.”
Created by a company that has provided credit card processing and merchant services for more than 20 years, PayAnywhere is used today by merchants ranging from billion dollar enterprises to the weekend neighborhood garage sale. PayAnywhere offers the lowest transaction fees in the industry - 2.69 percent per swiped transaction - and its pay-as-you-go pricing plan requires no setup or cancellation fees, no monthly fees and no minimum processing amount.
“Customers of Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio fall product and cookie sales have come to expect full point of sale capabilities at both booths and door-to-door sales. And with PayAnywhere, that’s exactly what they’ll have,” said Gene Schenberg, vice president of sales at PayAnywhere. “Whether it’s the Girl Scouts themselves, their parents or troop leaders running the credit card transactions, they will find PayAnywhere easy to use and will have full confidence that they are supported by around the clock customer support. Because we’ve heard from our customers that adding credit card options improves sales volume sometimes by as much as 50 percent, PayAnywhere is excited that our product can be used to help make the Girl Scouts sales operations even more successful in the coming years.”
