Customer Spotlight: Wendy from Orange Grove

This month, Wendy from Orange Grove luxury candles and bath products based in New Zealand is in our Customer Spotlight.  Orange Grove was born in a real orange grove in Kerikeri, Northland, NZ about six years ago and we’re now located in another happy orange grove in Christchurch.

NFC on the Apple iPhone

NFC on the Apple iPhone An explanation for Mobile POS app users iPhone models from iPhone 6 forward have NFC technology built in.
