October 26, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
October 26, 2009 - Lake Mary, Florida, U.S.A Blue Bamboo, an innovative provider of electronic payment solutions, prides itself in joining together with solution providers in bringing to market new and original offerings for the mobile merchant, and announces the netbook card-present payment solution. The solution includes the addition of software and BluetoothTM printer and magstripe reader to the netbook, a rapidly evolving small category of small, light and inexpensive laptop computers. Justin Anderson, Vice President, offered, "the objective of this new solution is to liberate merchants from isolated terminal use, allowing you to carry your entire business, including payment solution, wherever your business takes you."

Leveraging their own applications and gateways, solution providers and resellers have integrated the Blue Bamboo P25-M, a Magnetic Stripe Reader and thermal printer, and paired it with the netbook through cable or Bluetooth connections to create a working mobile card-present payment solution. Mobile Merchants leverage the built in or attachable air card in the netbook to access wireless carriers in order to complete mobile transactions.

Taking full advantage of the convenience provided by the versatile netbook card-present payment solution, merchants can utilize a familiar companion device that will securely provide the latest advances in payment technology, protecting their data and leveraging merchant demanded PA-DSS solutions. In addition, with a total solution price similar to a typical POS terminal, merchants will now be able to take advantage of the payment benefits as well as a fully equipped mobile office at the same time.
