Are you a merchant — big or small — who is looking for a more personal/mobile POS system? Laptops, netbooks, and even tablets seem like the most logical way to go for mobile. But even these devices are rather large and bulky to carry around. Personal computers just aren’t personal enough. Solution: mobile phones.

Phones of 2010 are exponentially more powerful than the same “high-end” phones of only 3-4 years ago. It’s really inspiring to see how far mobile technology has come in just a few years and at the same time, depressing to see what was “high-end” in the same time frame. So what exactly can a phone do today…?

With an app such as VeriPhone’s iPhone app and the small, good looking, and intuitive VeriFone card reader attachment, your iPhone can now replace a cash register/mobile POS system. And if one is good, many are better, right? For a merchant who is always on their feet, out and about in the field, such a combination is extremely powerful. But enough chitter chatter, let’s get down into the meat of it. First off, the hardware:

Hardware

One thing I was surprised with when opening the box is just how small and good looking the hardware is. Who would have thought a card reader could be sexy? VeriFone somehow has managed to pull off that exact feat. When I look at it, I actually think of an Incase iPhone case, specifically the Power Slider that I donned for awhile on my own iPhone.

The case is a smooth soft rubber that doesn’t stick to pockets or attract too much lint. Speaking of pockets, tight jeans wearing individuals will have some issues. But those of you who prefer a bit more breathing room will be happy to know that even with a small cash register attached to your phone, it will still fit in your pockets. The mobile merchants saving grace!

Software

One thing merchant’s will notice upon firing up the VeriFone iPhone app is that it is complex. Not necessarily in a bad way though. The only reason I had a small learning curve is because I’m not a merchant by day, so the lingo was a bit foreign. Nothing 20 minutes of play time couldn’t cure though.

Regardless of what you’re selling or how you’re selling it, VeriFone probably has you covered. Everything from sales tax to discount codes to history/transaction logs as well as countless user customizable options in said areas guarantee a happy and efficient merchant. It really is quite a robust app.

Pictures really do speak more than words, so I’ll let the gallery do the talking. There are a ton of options here when configuring your VeriFone hardware/software device ensuring that no matter what you sell or how you’d like to sell it, this is the way to go.

A special thanks to VeriFone for providing me with a review unit and test account.
