Mobile POS is becoming a hotter topic as more vendors create hardware designed to leverage smartphones and tablets. To this end, MasterCard released a fantastic document detailing the Best Practices for Mobile Point of Sale. I have written before about how to make a mobile payment application comply with PCI DSS, and this document really goes into the details of the payment stream, the acceptance types, and great detail into the challenges and solutions for mobile payment acceptance.

This document isn’t just for people who are considering mobile payment acceptance; every merchant should read this as someone in your organizations is already thinking along these lines (and maybe even piloting equipment). This is a key reference for me and I will be passing it around to my clients!


Update: I understand this document was released earlier last year. I am trying to find out if it was released in a place where I could have found it and alerted you to it back then.
