Need to charge people’s credit cards using their iPhone? Not only is there now an app for that, but there is also an accessory that will make your business as a merchant truly mobile. The Swipe It Reader from Macally is another Secure Credit Card Terminal available for the iPhone and iPod Touch which is a bit similar to the VeriFone PAYware system. However this one looks like a real system where as the other one looks more like an iPhone case. The device has room to dock your iPhone along with a slot for swiping cards. It also works in conjunction with the Simply Swipe It app, which costs just $0.99. TheSwipe It Reader is able to operate on both Wifi and 3G connections, and it supports most popular credit cards and many popular merchant gateways, including Authorize.net. Pricing is TBD and it should go on sale very soon.
