iZettle App for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch Allows Users to Take Credit and Debit Card Payments Anytime, Anywhere

Stockholm, Sweden – 18th of August 2011: iZettle announces its iZettle App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the Swedish App Store. iZettle is a mobile payment app providing users with the ability to take credit and debit card payments anytime, anywhere.

“Cash is a hassle,” said Jacob de Geer, iZettle CEO and co-founder. “Whether you’re a merchant with a storefront, a plumber working in someone’s home, selling produce at the farmers market or settling the bar bill between friends. iZettle makes payments convenient from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.”

The iZettle App is simple to set up with no monthly fee. Instead, for each transaction using iZettle, users will be charged 2.75 percent of the sale plus 1.50 SEK.

The iZettle App can be used with or without an iZettle card reader accessory, however using iZettle with the card reader is great for large and frequent transactions. During the current phase of introduction the company is making 2,000 card readers available free of charge.

Nothing is more important to iZettle than security. iZettle is EMV (Europay, MasterCard and VISA) approved and compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). No sensitive data is ever stored on your iOS device or iZettle reader, and all data traffic is encrypted.

“Innovative solutions like iZettle are making the everyday lives of MasterCard cardholders, businesses and small merchants much easier,” said Mats Taraldsson, Deputy General Manager, MasterCard Nordic & Baltic region.

The iZettle App is available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
