With Rave Mobile on your side, you don’t ever have to miss out on an important sale again. You can quickly accept card payments while you are manning your food stall or selling t-shirts at a fashion show.

Merchants who are currently signed up on ravepay.co and ready to go mobile can request their card readers to be delivered to their stores, shops and business centers.

RaveMOB is a recently launched mobile card reader that allows merchants to accept card payments from their customers on the go.

To start processing with RaveMOB, a vendor or business owner simply needs to create a merchant account on Rave’s website. Once merchant account has been verified, the vendor is provided with the RaveMOB device and can start accepting chip and pin card payments on the go. There are zero set up fees and with this device, accepting payments is as easy as entering an amount and handing the mobile POS to a customer to input card details and successfully making a payment.

In addition to accepting card payments, RaveMOB is linked to a vendor’s merchant account on Rave which means they can track incoming payments and transactions through a well-designed dashboard. RaveMOB users can get incredible insights into who their customers are after they’ve made payments using the device.

Rave’s platform is powered and secured by Flutterwave which means merchant and customer’s data are secure and protected both online and offline. In addition to a secure platform, RaveMOB is launching in the hardware space with competitive pricing – while commercial banks charge their merchants 1% for every transaction made using their POS device, RaveMOB merchants are charged 0.75% per transaction.

Following the success of Rave’s digital POS debut at the Eat Drink Lagos festival in August, the arrival of the mobile POS is a great opportunity for Flutterwave to show how well its products can work in the offline space.

RaveMOB is set to launch in Nigeria on the 1st of October with plans to expand across select African countries by 2018.
