    I've been using this for over a year now. For me and my small business it has been wonderful. When I had problems with the old swiper, they sent me the new Bluetooth one no questions asked. Works perfect for me. The only time I notice a glitch is when the app needs updated, I dont set my phone for automatic by choice. Full Review

    American Express 4 digit security codes cannot be entered. After one of the recent updates, manually entering the 4 digit security code is prevented due to the 3 digit cutoff. It used to allow 4 digit for the CSV number if you entered an American Express card. PLEASE fix this. I use it for work and this is very inconvenient. Full Review

    The app was better before the recent update. Now, I've lost the ability to insert Notes on a receipt. This was where I would include the customer's invoice/purchase number and description of what was purchased. How useful is a receipt if it only has a dollar amount and no description of what was purchased? Full Review

    Leanne Hunt Published date: February 5, 2018

    This app works great... When it works! It crashes, restarts, says it's not connected with a Bluetooth card reader when it is... It's even said that a customer's card was declined 3 TIMES when the chip was inserted, accepted it when it was entered manually, only to find out that the customer was charged 4 TIMES!!! It's so frustrating when you have a customer standing in front of you and you can't get the app to work. We are a girl scout troop and it's extremely discouraging for these little girls waiting on a sale, hoping it works. We've lost customers as a result which really sucks for our girls who are working so hard. Full Review

    This company has created such an hardship for us that we are seeking legal action. Customer comes in, makes a purchase, transaction goes through, customer walks out with merchandise. Four weeks later we have not received our funds from PayAnywhere. Continual runaround, no return calls and when I attempted to refund my customer so they can pay with check, they closed my account!

    Bill Lick Published date: August 5, 2017

    This is a very inconvenient app.. first, it dont sync properly.. i charged a customer almost twice cause when i went in to the recent transactions after the charge it did not show there nor in the last transaction window. Second you can never get ahold of any customer support and it takes them forever to reply to an email if they choose to reply at all.. this can cost you alot of money if you are a busy person...third every time you open the app there is an annoying pop up window that says it uses the audio jack which in fact they wont give you a simple reader that uses the audio jack you have to buy there chip reader card reader saying that is against the law not to use a chip reader which in fact is far from the case.. they want to be able to make more money off you by selling your the chip reader.. think twice!

    This is my first review of any software in the play store app. This company, pay anywhere mobile, has been a bigger burden to business than I could have imagined. I'm so upset I'm shaking. They've withheld a $6000 payment on the balance due for a construction project for over two weeks. I can't fill payroll and pay anywhere mobile has my company in such a vulnerable position that I lose sleep. I'm wondering how to cope with the predicament this company has caused me, my company, and my family. I stand by this statement because it's entirely true and factual. They've told me it will be up to a month when the package promises next day funding... We only made the mistake of conducting business with this company to secure next day funding to ensure payroll... What happens when one of my employees gets upset about not getting paid? The answer is we are vulnerable to bankruptcy, one employee files litigation right now, our hard earned business folds with people leaving as see facto slaves because of pay anywhere mobile. I'm genuinely praying about this right now. We work for our money, I don't know what this company does. Ron Covert-Executive NWCT I stand by these statements of fact... Full Review

    They offer a service supposedly easy to accept credit cards and then they put inconveniences to give you back your money of your transaction and they block the money and never give you back. For my was like a steal. The costumer service act in a unfriendly way. They think that any new costumer is a swindler and this is the time that I never received back my money without any explanation.. Don't believe in a friendly way to catch costumer and at the end they are not pro costumer. Full Review
