First iPhone Mobile Payments App introduced in Canada

Payfirma  Corp was named Canada’s best new start-up of 2011 at KPMG’s Startup Awards this month is introducing Canada’s first iPhone Mobile Payments App.

With the dongle, anyone can accept and send payments anywhere as long as they have WIFI or a mobile signal. Clients sign right on the screen, there is a 2-second authorization and incorporates instant e-mail receipts. And, Payfirma claims, the optional credit card swiper makes it even more convenient. Payfirma CEO Michael Gokturk says the firm’s latest mobile payments app was made based on customer feedback and is reported to have said, “Once a merchant finds out about us and how low the service costs, it’s so easy to switch them over or board them as a new client,” he says. “We’re boarding about 500 clients on a monthly basis, and it just keeps going up.”
