Canada-based mobile payment provider Payfirma has updated its mobile payment app with a faster and easier credit card acceptance feature for iPhones and iPads.
The initial app was first launched in August 2011.
Payfrima said the app allows business to access real-time transaction reporting with daily, weekly and month-to date sales, enabling merchants to manage their business more effectively.
Each transaction is tagged with the location of the sale, so merchants and their customers can see their transactions on a map, right on their mobile device. This gives small businesses a new set of business intelligence to improve their sales and also increase security, the company said.
Payfirma hopes to tap into an international market by updating its app to support multiple languages, with French being the first.
If the operating language is set to French on an iPhone or iPad, Payfirma’s app will be automatically rendered in French, tapping into the French Canadian market.
Payfirma has said it has begun research and development for the next version which will support NFC standards and the EMV payments standard.
