P8 is a simple-to-use app for iOS and Android for accepting card payments without any additional hardware.
Accepting card payments used to be a time-consuming and bureaucratic process involving ordering at least one dedicated card machine terminal which was a significant expense, especially for small businesses, solopreneurs, and businesses just starting out.
The only requirements for getting the P8 app to work are a mobile device, Android or iOS, a Stripe account, and an internet connection. If these requirements are met, almost any business around the world can start accepting credit card and debit card payments from customers. The signup process can be completed on the same day.
Additional more advanced features of the app include the ability to review past transactions and potentially refund them. Also, each transaction can have a description and the receipt can be sent to the customer via email. The card details for a transaction can be entered manually, using the phone camera, or contactless using NFC (only on Android). For any help getting the app to work or any issues encountered, the P8 team is always available to help via email and website chat.
Statistics show that 57% of payments in 2020 in the USA were made with payment cards, such as debit, credit, and prepaid cards. Paying using a card is by far the most common payment method in most developed countries and not accepting card payments is considered a major inconvenience by most customers. Acquiring additional hardware, such as a card terminal, is a de-facto required initial cost for small businesses or businesses just starting out. P8 offers a way to avoid this cost by using the hardware that the merchant most probably already has, the mobile phone.
