North American Bancard (NAB), a multi-faceted payment solutions provider, recently said that it is planning to expand its reach of PayAnywhere – the only true "no compromise" credit card reader for mobile payments. With the expansion, now the system is compatible with Android devices such as HTC EVO 4G, Motorola (News - Alert) Droid, HTC Droid Incredible, Motorola Droid X, Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy S Epic. The system can also be used in all Apple devices such as Phone 3G, 3GS and 4, as well as iPad, iPad 2 and iPod touch.

"We can't wait to welcome Android (News - Alert) customers to the NAB family and to PayAnywhere, which we're confident is the most intuitive and robust mobile payment system available on the platform, said Marc Gardner, NAB founder and president, in a press release. We look forward to Android users experiencing what Apple (News - Alert) customers already enjoy about PayAnywhere – free software and hardware, no setup fees, no application fees, no monthly service fees and no monthly minimums required.  Additionally, the PayAnywhere Android application combines a simple user interface, comprehensive merchant portal and a built-in lead generation program that results in automatic merchant bonuses."

Android and Apple users can simply start using PayAnywhere by downloading the free app from Android Market or the App Store, respectively, and the appropriate free card reader device will be delivered directly to each customer. Soon, BlackBerry (News - Alert) users will also be able to use the services on their device.

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.

North American Bancard is a multi-faceted payment solutions provider dedicated to providing the latest technology, as well as committing to the highest service levels. Recently, the company acquired Point and Pay from Vesta and has appointed Kevin Connell as the new president of the company.
