The first feature, Swipe to Sell, makes it so you don’t have search through inventory and scan payment options to find the item. Instead, while on the Sell screen, you can swipe a card, enter the amount owed for the merchandise and move on to the next sale. This feature is always present in a Phone Swipe 3.0 transaction – just swipe the card and the app does the rest.

The second feature, Express Sale, allows you to tap on a previous sale amount to instantly add an express sale, or enter a custom amount for those one-off items you might be stocking for the season.

Split tender, the third new feature, allows you to accept multiple forms of payment on a single transaction. After you ring a sale, you simple tap “More Payment Options” and then “Split Tender.” Enter in the first payment amount and the payment method. After the first payment the app will calculate the amount still owed and you can continue by entering the second payment amount and method – continue this process until the amount due is $0. Tap “Proceed” and complete the transaction.

If you are using Phone Swipe on your iPad, an update is available for download in the Apple App Store. Have comments or questions about Phone Swipe 3.0? Call 877-957-9473 or email custservice@phoneswipe.com.
