Payanywhere’s free point of sale (POS) app accepts payments any way your customer wants to pay.

You’ve got everything you need to accept credit card payments, sell more to your customers, and keep your employees organized.

With point of sale software, hardware, and business management tools, Payanywhere is the payment solution you need to transform your business: a seamless checkout, low rates, fast funding, detailed analytics, and live support.

The Payanywhere POS app works with a 2-in-1 credit card reader to accept EMV chip cards and magstripe cards or a 3-in-1 credit card reader to accept Apple Pay and other contactless payments, EMV chip cards, and magstripe cards.

Give your business the boost it needs with the online portal, Payments Hub - your command center for accepting payments, tracking sales, creating reports, and more.

The Payanywhere app can be as simple or as feature-rich as you need your payments to be:

- Get funds next day or same day.
- Accept NFC contactless, EMV chip, and magstripe payments.
- Track cash payments.
- Customize and send receipts.
- Send invoices and allow your customers to set up autopay.
- Manage refunds and voids.
- Use Offline Transactions when you need to accept payments without an internet connection.
- Create inventory, track stock, and apply discounts.
- Customize your point of sale system with a printer, cash drawer, or barcode scanner.
- Available in two payment themes: Terminal or Retail. Terminal theme: Enter a transaction amount and accept payment. Retail theme: Select from inventory, create tickets or open tabs, and accept payment.
- Payments Hub, the online portal, enables you to run your business with sales reporting, transaction history, employee management, inventory tracking, and online payments.

Used to be good

I have had this app for almost 10 years never had a problem until about a year an half ago. I have called and reported a lot of times. I am a street vendor and numerous times I run a card and it will say “card declined”. I’m not Walmart it is a personal experience, 1 on 1 with a customer so they won’t give me a card they know won’t work. I have come to the conclusion that unless the app can access the customers card info it will automatically say “card declined”. There is an override within settings to “force feed” the transaction but it doesn’t work. Last Saturday ran 2 transactions went fine, 10 minutes later declined a card and then another. Called and talked to this girl she finally told me I would have to upgrade to an iPad 3 in order for the app to work as the app did not support the iPad 2 like I have. So why did the first 2 transactions work?. Stupidest thing I ever heard. Going to change this week before Saturday

Mostly good

Update. I just spent over an hour trying to update my firmware, changed my password. I finally got password changed but it will not accept it with a PayAnywhere service. I can only get into the new fancy reporting feature. What does it matter if I want to report what I make, if I can’t make any money with this darn thing!

FYI, it worked fine yesterday when I tested it. It’s the weekend updates that are going to make me go to square

This works pretty well most of the time. One rather large issue I have is they do their updates on Fridays. I need the app on Saturday mornings. If I am not near a trusted Wi-Fi. It will not work until I update, and I cannot update without Wi-Fi. I have been caught on several occasions without ability to take charges simply because of this. I am now in the habit of checking Saturday morning before I leave, but you know what? Sometimes it’s hard to make that much time. It would be such a simple thing to either alert the users via text or email that there is an update coming, or allow someone to use the 2nd oldest version if it’s not updated. I do think the customer service part of the service is really good. I did notice the most, positive, recent reviews were all dated in early December….

Great support system

Besides having one of the lowest rates, when issues develop with software or hardware, the support team has been conscientious, helpful and efficient. It’s one of the reasons I’ve remained with this company for over 10 years. They’ve included the hardware at no cost as well, allowed me to choose the plan that best fits my seasonal business and worked to correct things when clearly things weren’t my fault. The problems experienced, have much to do with technology itself and isn’t necessarily indigenous to this company. What I would like to see is a better flow of year end reports indicating clear accumulative fees, total sales tax collected, all in a transparent meaningful content. Currently I need to calculate each month’s statements against my bank account deposits. Seems redundant and not reflective of today’s efficiency in technology.
