Update no longer shows customer name
I really like this processor but now when I do a transaction the customer's name no longer shows up automatically, I have to input it if I want it. My transactions show "unnamed customer." Why the change?
I did e-mail for customer support and also called. They are not sure why this is happening and could not find a solution. They suggested that I leave a review on this forum.

Hi there, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get that figured out for you.
Most Recent Update doesn’t work properly
Everything was good on this app until today’s update. Right after I manually charge the credit card, the app closes! I’m not able to fill in customer name and email recipients etc. I have to reopen the app and go in to type in the recipients email addresses but I can’t do the same for customer name.
Make a copy of your daily sales!!
I am on my 3rd phone swipe in less than 90 days. First one worked on and off for a couple of weeks, tech support kept telling me it was my phone. It also stopped computing tax - again was told it was my phone; and could not reason with them that it use to work and now did not so what does my phone have to do with it?? Got a different phone (the first one was on their list of compatible phones) - same thing happened - phone swipe worked on and off for a week or so. Every time I called tech support the women would tell me to uninstall and reinstall, at which point I lost all my stored data! That happened 4 times until I said enough!! It is frustrating to have to manually enter a card, but after 5 or 6 times you don't want your customer to have to stand there; and I think Phone Swipe does this on purpose so they can get the higher rate for a manually entered card. Same crap started happening, so I invested in a compatible iPad. 3rd card reader now accepts a card the majority of the time.....I will add that my store is stationary on a street front and I have a Internet connection 4 feet away. If you can avoid it, do NOT speak with any women in tech support they only know to tell you to uninstall and reinstall - that is not the right answer.
