sales are probably about half of our income right now. It's critical to
be able to sell things at the shows," says Larry Ciancia, Ben's
drummer, in an interview with Mobility Magazine. "We used to turn
away a lot of people that didn't carry cash to the show, and so we lost
a lot of sales opportunities."
used to see other bands with the ability to take credit cards and print
receipts right on the spot, and we were definitely jealous,"

Amy Tangerine herself

trade and fashion shows. She says" It is so easy to work
with your company because of the exceptional customer service. Since
this technology is so advanced and affordable, it is comforting to feel
like we can always contact you with any concerns or questions. Every
customer is impressed with the ease of running their credit card.
I am such a big fan and I have made sure to spread the word to fellow
small business owners in the fashion industry. Our business is
small but growing, and we are always excited to have a great team of
professionals helping us along."

Thomas, president of Hometown says:
"I will start out by saying that if more companies had customer
service like Advanced Merchant [Merchant Anywhere] does, it would be a
happier world we live in! Their people are FANTASTIC! They totally
went out of their way to help me over the hill. Far
and away the best product on the market today! So
easy to use, I have 13 units in the field for 10 days of the year. The
people running the machines aged from 18 to 74 years old had zero
training and it was a breeze!
Hometown Fireworks Inc. would recommend this product/service to any mobile person or company out there today with full confidence. They receive a 10 in my book!"
With the start of summer this merchant certainly hits the spot! Mistcooling.com is a leader in outdoor and indoor mist cooling products and mosquito go-away system for home owners, commercial and industrial applications.
MistCooling.com says: "We have started accepting credit cards with MerchantAnywhere.com, and now we realize we had lost about 40% of business by not accepting credit cards before."

We love the flexibility that's provided with Advanced Merchant Solutions and Verifier Pro. We use one merchant account for our Web Sales (directly linked) and our Call-In Sales (web based form). And when we're at a festival selling in person we can get the swiped rate by using our Palm Phone and Verifier Pro. The combination works great for us and the service has been excellent." -Brian and Jayne Klecker, www.kidmusic.com
Roger Chartier of MassCashSales says: "To be fair there were issues with the Palm phone I picked up on eBay that required a total of 5 hours spent on the phone between Cingular and Palm until they were finally solved. Today with Pocket Merchant we captured two sales from individuals that wanted merchandise but were short on cash. This is a welcome addition to our bottom line and an additional opportunity to serve our customers. Customers are fascinated with the MerchantAnywhere technology, and enjoy interacting with the authorization process while outdoors! You and MerchantAnywhere exceeded my expectations. A number of business people have been paying close attention to my undertakings and they will be informed of the very positive results! As for other business people, if you're looking for an organization that will be there for you when the chips are down, help you through your difficulties, and also provide you with timely E-mailed newsletters.... MerchantAnywhere is for you."
Reed Wells, of MajikMushroom says: "Merchant Anywhere was the first merchant account I ever used. With the excellent service that Dennis and the crew provide, it will also be my only one. Thanks very much guys!"
From the Zen Cart User Forum: "...then I found MerchantAnywhere. They rock. Great customer support where you can actually talk to a live person. No upfront fees, no ridiculous set-up fees and a sensible rate structure. The best news is that there is a direct-processing module for Zen [Cart], if you are interested." - BusFish
David B Turetsky, owner of BusFish says: "For merchant services, their rates cannot be beat. BusFish switched to MerchantAnywhere due to their customer support, prices and outstanding technological offerings."
Sue Dallmann, owner of A Path to Wholeness says: "[I] Just wanted to tell you (again) how pleased I am with your company. I just finished exhibiting at the International Gem & Jewelry Show in Chicago over the Memorial Day weekend & witnessed several other vendors taking their larger & cumbersome credit card machines over to the windows trying to chase a signal while I sat there in my booth with my Palm & Verifier Pro processing payments without a glitch. What a relief that was."
They use a
Treo 600 with Pocket Merchant at events and expos,
Verifier for the credit card sales, and our Pocket Change software for
their cash sales.
Dr. Anthony R. Ellis, M.D., founder and author writes us: "Just wanted to say thanks for a great product. I am an author and sell my books at local events/expos. I made $3000 worth of sales in the first week the book was available and $350 of sales came via credit card transactions. Your company and you product functioned flawlessly and the funds were in my account within 24 hours. Thanks again. By the way, many other merchants asked me about the product and I've referred them to your website."
MAC Tools has adopted Pocket Verifier company-wide, and even teaches how to use at their Training Center. At Mac Tools Corporate, the "Mobile Merchant" coordinator, Dario Dinardo, MAC Card Specialist says: "One of my responsibilities is to help our fleet of distributors who are interested in purchasing a mobile credit card machine, to do so. The program we have in place has our merchant accounts set up through MerchantAnywhere. [Our Rep] has been a vital link in our process pipeline. Any questions or concerns that do arise, from starting up a merchant account, to fixing glitches that happen to pop up from time to time, are either answered to or taken care of quickly and clearly by [Our Rep]. The professionalism displayed by merchantanywhere is first class all the way, I recommend them highly."
Borchelt of MACarbon writes: "We
have been using MerchantAnywhere for our credit card processing for the
last year after starting out taking PayPal. We use the Pocket
Merchant with a Sprint TREO 300 at tradeshows. This arrangement was our
original reason for signing up. We also use the internet terminal
[Transaction Central] to do our daily phone sales. It has
been great working with you to service our customers."

Frank D., the owner of Drachenstein Treasures took our system in the field and says: "Just finished our first show using the Pocket Verifier - absolutely no snags - perfect coverage. The show was in the Katrina damage zone where they had replaced all the towers with the new digital towers, our old analog system would have cost us a mint. So many merchants found their old systems worthless and ended up either voice authorizing their sales or gambling with the manual imprinter...Your system teamed with a Treo 650 is a power house. It was also great not having to walk about, like other merchants, holding a Nurit in the air like the Statue of Liberty looking for a signal, or having to do voice authorizations on your cell phone - and being charged for it. I couldn't be happier - Thanks!"

owner, Jack Slocumb selected MerchantAnywhere especially for this
account. Jack is actually one of the original
authors of the Transaction Central gateway! Being in this
position, he had his pick and choice of hundreds of companies that
use that gateway. Jack says: "Because you cut out
the sales reps and deal direct to the merchant, you have
eliminated the greatest markups. All the other guys want 2
year commitments and cancellation fees, and I know from experience
that they would not give me service after the sale"
This is Jack's SECOND account and company with us, and he continues by saying: "Your online merchant application make it so simple to get my merchant account that I was shocked. In 2 days I was setup and ready to take transactions with my own shopping cart. It was so easy to integrate into my shopping cart system"
