    Turn your iPhone into a credit card terminal for $49.99

    techflash.com Most iPhone applications are free or have a nominal
    charge of a couple bucks. That's why we were intrigued with Inner
    Fence, a Seattle startup that is charging $49.99 for its application.

    Ya, I'm going to give my credit card for payment without a receipt. E-mail
    it they say.
    Sure, that's going to fly. Buy a item for xyz.xx but get a bill for xxx.zz
    Then fight it out with your bank.

    Without a paper trail, your asking for problem's.

    Turn your Palm or Windows Mobile-based phone into a credit card terminal
    for $0.00:
    http://www.merchantanywhere.com

    Like with the iPhone application, the merchant account runs $25/month,plus
    transaction fees.

    Unlike the iPhone app, Merchant Anywhere offers an optional bluetooth combo
    card reader/receipt printer which is not only a bit more professional
    looking than fingering a credit card number into a phone and telling a
    customer he'll get a receipt via email, but qualifies the merchant fora
    lower transaction fee. (Credit card companies charge lower fees on swiped
    transactions since the fraud rate is lower- the swipe "proves" the merchant
    had the actual card in hand.)

    Please read your card holder agreement again. You're better off without
    a paper trail, the merchant takes the risk, not the card holder.

    If the merchant doesn't have a piece of paper with the correct total and
    a signature, the card holder will win the credit card dispute without
    any financial exposure.

    I always get the paper work. If not I go elsewhere. Went to the apple store
    with a friend today. They said they would send his paperwork in e-mail.
    (Which he does not have) So he went to bestbuy and bought it there. 2200.00
    Computer. They made up some BS about there printer was out of paper. I'm
    sure if they knew what he was going to spend there printer would have
    worked.

    Good for you -- None of that negates what I just said.

    You're welcome to insist on paperwork, or a shiny gold star, or whatever
    other terms yourself and the merchant negotiate, but in terms of a
    credit card dispute, you're no worse off without a proper receipt, and
    potentially in a stronger position if it means that the merchant didn't
    get your signature in the process.
