Happy to have found an app that lets me take payments with my phone. Easy to set up , easy to use and no contract. I go to markets and I used to have an Eftpos machine, most people pay cash and I did use the Eftpos machine only a few times a month, with a contract for a minimum of 1 year and a big monthly cost, in comparison I now pay a small amount on each transaction and it makes it a lot cheaper for me. I can recommend it highly a good solution for small entrepreneurs.

I've had no trouble using this app and find it quick for customers etc but I have a devil of a time trying to get to my balances etc, infact I can't. As soon as I open the app, facial recognition kicks in and it takes me straight to doing a transaction and there is nowhere once I'm there to find balances etc.
As a small stall holder, this app is exactly what is needed to take payments via credit card. Having the ability to offer this form of payment has definitely improved sales. It saves on using pricy EFTPOS machines with monthly charges, especially when you don't know if you will get a sale on the day or not. One improvement I would like to see is the ability to take debit card payments that don't have a cvc number. I have lost a few sales due to customers not having a credit card or cash to pay for the items. Overall well worth having.

Thanks for the feedback and suggestion. Although it's technically possible to make the cvc field optional, the problem is that it hugely increases the fraud rate and risk. Obviously that's an issue for everyone - us, Stripe, most merchants, most card holders & banks... Hope that helps explain why the cvc field is required.
