Finally small business merchants can have one less thing to worry about. With NetSecure Kudos Mobile Credit Card Kit you can do most of your credit card billing right from your smartphone, PC, laptop or tablet without any costly monthly charges. With the simple swipe card reader and app installed, all you need to do is swipe the customer’s card to be on your way to simple billing. The Kudos Mobile connects to your smartphone or PC by either using a USB port or headphone jack.
“Terminals and merchant accounts are cost-prohibitive for small and micro businesses,” said Daniel McCann, president and founder of NetSecure Payments. “Small merchants like electricians, taxi drivers, home-based businesses, and even Girl Scouts need the flexibility to accept all forms of payment. By allowing merchants to use what they already have – their phones and computers – as their payment terminals, Kudos provides these merchants what they need to stay competitive, at a fraction of the cost of traditional offerings.”
The Kudos credit card acceptance kit serves as a complete ‘point of sale in a box.’ Equipped with a swipe terminal, POS software and a merchant account, users can begin accepting credit card payments for a flat rate of 2.7 percent plus $0.20 per transaction, with no monthly or ongoing fees.
Other products post a low rate and mark everything up with hidden fees and surcharges, but Kudos offers all-inclusive, flat-rate pricing, so you always know what you’re being charged.

Just another knockoff of Payfirma’s app using the Roam swiper and software. Nothing about Kudos is proprietary, they’re just a reseller for a US payment processor. Their rates are also higher than even Square, why would any small business use Kudos when they can get better deal through Payfirma or Moneris?
