App Ninjas (, developer of Swipe for iPhone, is now shipping the Apple-approved Credit Card Swiper for iPhone. This hardware accessory adds support for retail transactions to the Swipe mobile credit card processing solution, which is available to merchants directly or through App Ninjas’ network of value-added white-label partners.

The Swipe white-label solution enables Independent Sales Organizations (ISOs), banks, and other merchant-focused companies to offer their customers a complete credit card processing solution for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Partners’ customers process cards through a custom-branded app, newly enhanced to support the Credit Card Swiper for full retail support.

Swiping cards offers merchants lower rates, when paired with a retail merchant account, and reduces the time required to process each transaction, says John Waldron, CEO of App Ninjas.

The Swipe white-label solution offers partners same day start-up and access to App Ninjas’ PA-DSS certified iPhone solution. Additionally, the Swipe app can be customized to integrate with a partner’s existing payment gateway.

Originally US$29.99, Swipe is now being offered for sale at $0.99 in the Apple App Store.
