FAQ of the Week: Device Compatibility
Happy Monday! Kicking off the start of each week will be a new feature on the PayAnywhere blog, the FAQ of the Week. Each week a new question and answer will be posted to help you better use the PayAnywhere product.

Additional Android devices are being added on a regular basis and devices not specifically listed above may also be supported.
