However, there are a number of secure solutions that look to help break down barriers that might exist.

Vendors at local community events or other business owners can now take advantage of devices like the Paypal Here, which places a credit card strip reader right on top of a smartphone; this turns something the merchant might already own into a powerful payment solution that can help increase the level of convenience all around.

Relating back to a previous point, these new forms of transactions are often powered by sophisticated algorithms that keep information secure, which can those who might not be comfortable with mobile technology rest assured that convenience and security can indeed be combined.

Payment solutions for business owners are no longer confined to store fronts or other, more structured environments, so staying in-the-know on the latest advancements is key to keeping up with the modern consumer.
