Apriva Review

POS Systems

Apriva is a wireless POS system designed for retail businesses, restaurants, and professional services like law firms, as well as for taking on the job transactions. The portability can benefit many business types, including contractors, photographers, taxi/limo drivers, delivery services, and more.

Additionally, Apriva offers an “unattended” processing solution for kiosks and vending machines.

Using Apriva you can accept a wide variety of payment methods, including credit and debit cards, EBT cards, and touch to pay/NFC services like Apple Pay and Samsung Pay.

Apriva boasts compatibility with 35 credit card processors. Along with Apriva’s ability to integrate with many existing POS services, it could be a good choice if you are looking to switch from an existing POS system.

What You’ll Need

If you want to take credit and debit cards with Apriva, you will need the Apriva POS software, a merchant account with a compatible credit card processor, and any of a wide range of compatible hardware that could include iPads, iPhones, Android devices or a number of compatible POS terminals. (See Apriva and Credit Card Processing for more info on compatible processors.)

Apriva Features

Apriva provides many services necessary for small businesses, like 24/7 customer support and portability through its wireless system. Apriva can also add credit card functionality to unattended kiosks and vending machines.

AprivaLife is a brandable mobile app specifically tailored to your business. You can customize the app to allow customers to pay for goods, provide location-based services, offer discounts, and build customer loyalty.

Wireless Transactions
Is your business literally on-the-move? With the aid of North America’s major cellular providers, Apriva has the ability to process credit card transactions outside of traditional brick and mortar businesses.

Unattended Payments
Called Apriva Vend, the unattended payments option allows you to accept credit cards without a staff member on site, like at kiosks or vending machines. State of the art cashless vending technology can be financed through Apriva.

Apriva and Credit Card Processing

Apriva is not a credit card processor itself. In order to take cards with Apriva, you’ll need a merchant account with a compatible card processor. Fortunately, Apriva is not limited to one processor. In fact, they claim to be compatible with more processors than any other POS system, great news if you already have a processor you prefer.

Among their extensive list of options, Apriva marks JetPay, SecureNet, EVO, Vantiv, and WorldPay as preferred processors.

Apriva Accessories

Apriva’s Merchant Portal app provides up to the minute reporting to a back office computer or mobile device. The app allows you to manage your inventory and employees, export sales statistics, view transaction data, and resend transaction receipts to past customers.
