Sprint is partnering up with Intuit to provide GoPayment services for small businesses. Here is more info:
"GoPayment is affordable and hassle-free. All that's needed is a mobile phone with access to the mobile Web, or the easy-to-download GoPayment application, and an Intuit GoPayment merchant account.
GoPayment is part of Intuit?s small business growth strategy to deliver innovative mobile offerings that help entrepreneurs manage their business on the go. As one of its first partners, Intuit is working with Sprint to help small businesses get paid easily and quickly using the GoPayment application on select Sprint phones. Intuit is also working with beeweeb and VeriSign?s Messaging and Mobile Media Division, along with others, to deliver innovative mobile offerings.
With GoPayment, there?s no need to carry special hardware, such as a wireless terminal, saving thousands of dollars. Business owners can also add multiple employees to a single merchant account at no additional cost. Along with accessing GoPayment via the mobile Web, business owners can also download the GoPayment mobile application to a wide-range of supported handsets.
Works With or Without QuickBooks To monitor transactions, GoPayment users can easily access Intuit?s online Merchant Service Center to search, view and create reports. Business owners who use QuickBooks can save time by downloading their transactions from the Merchant Service Center directly into QuickBooks Pro or Premier 2009.
Optional Hardware Optional Bluetooth hardware makes GoPayment even easier to use. These small and lightweight mobile accessories include a card swipe that automatically reads credit card data, reducing manual entry. In addition, a combination card swipe and printer automatically populates card data and lets business owners give customers a printed receipt on the spot.
Security Intuit GoPayment uses the same technology (128-bit SSL encryption) as the financial services industry standard to protect information during transmission. Sensitive credit card information is never stored on the handset and each user has a unique login and password to access GoPayment data.
Pricing and Availability Intuit GoPayment (http://mobilepayment.intuit.com) is available for all mobile phones with access to the mobile Web. It?s also available as a downloadable native application on a wide-range of popular handsets.

Transaction pricing is competitive, ranging from 1.64 to 3.54 percent, with no additional fees or long-term contracts. Business owners may cancel at any time.
