The new mobile payment processing service is currently available at 18 PostNet locations.
PostNet Mobile Payments lets small businesses accept on-the-go payments from customers using Apple and most Android-powered mobile devices.

The introduction of PostNet Mobile Payments further establishes PostNet as a one-stop business-solutions provider. Adding to PostNet's printing, marketing and design capabilities, PostNet Mobile Payments aligns with the company's shift toward offering consultative services. PostNet's goal is to become marketing partners for small businesses in their communities, while also creating new, recurring sources of revenue for PostNet franchises.
"PostNet pioneered the concept of a neighborhood small-business center and we continue to embrace new technology to fill the needs of small businesses," said PostNet CEO Steve Greenbaum. "We've partnered with Franchise Payments Network because they not only understand the specific needs of franchises, but they also offer the most cost-effective and secure mobile payment system for our customers."
