Process a transaction with the GoDaddy mobile app

Your GoDaddy mobile app allows you to process transactions through credit or debit card (tap, insert, or swipe), tap to pay (NFC), manual card entry, QR code or cash. All you need is GoDaddy Payments and the GoDaddy mobile app, and you're ready to start accepting payments.

The GoDaddy Poynt Card Reader provides your customers with an easy way to pay with their physical credit card. It’s a nice option to have, but it isn’t required. You have lots of ways to get paid!


With Tap to Pay, you can accept all types of in-person, contactless payments, right on your phone — from physical debit and credit cards, to Apple Pay and other digital wallets — no extra card readers or hardware needed.
