Currently, PayAnywhere for Android is supported on: HTC EVO 4G, Motorola Droid, HTC Droid Incredible, Motorola Droid X, Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy S Epic, with additional devices being added regularly.  Android customers can visit for the most current list of supported devices.  Additionally, PayAnywhere is fully compatible with iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4, as well as iPad, iPad 2 and iPod touch.  PayAnywhere will soon be available for BlackBerry mobile customers.

Since its inception, PayAnywhere has outperformed its competition in the areas of both security and unmatched 24/7 customer service support, combined with affordability and a user-friendly application.  Additionally, PayAnywhere is backed by NAB, an industry leader in credit card processing, which currently processes more than $1 billion in electronic transactions monthly for more than 110,000 merchants nationwide.
