Redesigned GoPayment for Android Packs Tons of New Features

A major new GoPayment update for Android, version 3.0.0, is now available in the Google Play and Amazon app stores.

This major update includes a brand-new look and feel, as well as several highly requested features, including discounting, cash transactions, syncing across devices and users, item categories, user roles and permissions, and customization tools for your app.

More Ways to Get Paid

Now you can use GoPayment to record cash transactions and send your customer a receipt. Cash transactions appear along with credit card transaction in your history.

When creating an order, you can add a discount to the order – either as a percentage or a dollar amount.

Personalize Your App and Make GoPayment Your Own

Now you can customize your receipt and the look of your GoPayment app – right from the mobile app.

You can add your logo, your business name, and a choice of background skins to make the mobile app look and feel like your own.

All of the email receipt customization that you previously had to go to to do is now at your fingertips. Receipts can now include your logo, a custom message, or links to your Twitter, Facebook or Yelp web pages.

Improved Business and Items Management

Previously you could only see your last 25 transactions and had to use Merchant Center to see the rest of them. Now GoPayment customers can see their full GoPayment transaction history right on their phone, including a daily sales summary.

Also, GoPayment now syncs the Items list for a company and enables any user on this account or any device using this account to see the same list of items. Previously, items created in GoPayment were tied to that individual device and weren’t shareable.

Since small businesses often use multiple devices (a phone on the road, a tablet when working at events), now you can see and edit your items once, then share those item updates with everyone who works for you. We’ve also added features to make it easier to use and manage your Items list.

Expanded Roles and Permissions

Now, all GoPayment users have a “GoPayment Role” which determines what they can see or do. So when you create a GoPayment user on your Merchant Center account, you can set them as Admin, Manager, Assistant Manager, or Associate, which determines whether they have access to editing Items or changing app settings – like your tax rate or email receipt customization.

Best of all, even with these upgrades, GoPayment continues to be easy to use! If all you want to do is swipe a credit card, just tap in the amount and you’ll be paid within seconds.
