SOUTH PLAINFIELD, N.J., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CHARGE Anywhere® LLC, a leading developer and provider of award-winning, secure mobile payment applications and payment gateway technology, will publicly introduce their latest CHARGE Anywhere for BlackBerry® payments software featuring NFC payment technology at the BlackBerry World event this week in Orlando, Florida.

The CHARGE Anywhere Mobile Payment App for BlackBerry enables business owners to accept payments on their BlackBerry smartphone or PlayBook™ and securely process credit and debit cards anywhere their business takes them. Now, businesses operating on the BlackBerry 7 OS platform can accept NFC enabled credit and debit cards like Visa®'s payWave or MasterCard®'s PayPass by simply tapping their customer's card to the BlackBerry and receive an approval within a few seconds.

Businesses that use BlackBerry Curve™ and Bold™ with NFC technology can quickly and easily tap their customer's NFC enabled card to the device and sign on the screen for a fast and secure transaction, enhancing the customer's convenience and overall experience.

With just a BlackBerry, and no additional hardware like an audio jack card reader for example, business owners will qualify for the lowest card processing rates and the highest data security. NFC enabled card payment transactions provide businesses a very low risk card payment transaction and confirm that the card is present at the time of transaction.

"We are proud to say that CHARGE Anywhere is the first Mobile Payment App provider to support NFC initiated credit and debit card payment acceptance on BlackBerry NFC enabled devices," said Paul Sabella, CEO of CHARGE Anywhere. "CHARGE Anywhere has a legacy of supporting mobile payments on BlackBerry devices dating back to the original RIM 950 two-way pager."

The new release for BlackBerry signifies CHARGE Anywhere's commitment to leading the future of payment technology acceptance methods with support for payments with NFC Technology.
