Mobile payment apps are the wave of the future. We are in the age of the apps and a smart mobile device will make them happen. To be sure, they will happen if you start to build your own apps now.
I’ve been writing about mobile payment apps for quite some time now and am constantly amazed at how easy it is to create a great app. It’s like doing magic with a ready-made kit. There are three factors that make creating a good mobile payment app possible:
App directory listings are critical. You can’t compete with Apple if you aren’t on the App Store. So we focus on app directory listings and start creating apps and optimizing them to be featured.
One of the things that people love about mobile apps is multi-point payment capabilities. If you’re using Google’s Android phone, one of the most popular ways to get paid is through a credit card. But, it’s also possible to do mobile cash through PayPal and if you’re thinking of using that as a way to pay for items or services, you should find out if you’ll be able to do that with Google Pay. Read this article for more information on what that is.
With so many people using their mobile phones for shopping and payment transactions, mobile payment apps must be designed to capture and keep track of all these transactions. By combining everything into one interface, you can make it much easier to keep track of all your mobile payments, including those through your merchant account.
Have you thought about all the money you could save by just shopping online? Instead of heading down to the mall, parking your car, and then waiting in line to pay for your merchandise, shop online right from your phone. That way, you can avoid long lines and crowds and have the convenience of being able to buy right from your couch. Not only that, but you can pay for that mobile shopping spree on the go.
You should try to get listings from multiple vendors. This allows you to have the ability to pay for shipping and handling in one transaction instead of sending separate payments for each merchant. You can find out how you can build your own mobile shopping cart in this article.
In addition to shopping, mobile payment apps could also be used to make payments through your email. Or, it could also allow you to take advantage of online coupons, if that’s something you’re into. Either way, there’s a ton of opportunities to take advantage of.
So, to recap, the key to creating the best mobile payment apps is to choose the right vendor to partner with. Of course, you will need to create your own merchant account.
Then you should create a small business or even a big-name merchant account. These are critical first steps toward making your mobile application successful. Also, you should decide whether you want to offer one-time payments or recurring payments, and once you know that, you can start building your payment process.
Finally, get a look at the back end of your mobile app. This is important because your application needs to work seamlessly with a merchant account and also has the ability to convert your payments. You want to make sure you have complete control over the back end, not a third party who you trust.
Once you have mastered these three easy things, your life should be much simpler, as you will know how to do all the things you would like to do with your mobile app. Take a look at my last post to learn more about making money with an app.
