The Chip & PIN card reader from payleven, Europe's leading provider of mobile card payments, is now available through the Media Markt online shop. With the possibility to obtain immediate verification of payment by entering the PIN number, the chip & PIN card readers are the safest solution for mobile card payments in the market and the first to be offered by Media Markt.
For payleven, the sales cooperation with Media Markt is a big step on the way to making the Chip & PIN technology freely available in the retail sector. By working with Media Markt, purchasing barriers will be reduced substantially and access to mobile card payments will be made considerably easier.
"We are delighted to have won the Media Markt online shop as a strong partner for the Germany-wide distribution of payleven" says Alston Zecha, founder and COO of payleven. "Expanding the availability of the Chip & PIN card reader plays an essential role in continuing to firmly establish mobile card payments on the market, because only then can interested merchants buy appropriate hardware directly from the dealer of their choice."
payleven, with its Chip & PIN technology, addresses in particular small and medium-sized merchants, from restaurants, to retail stores, to taxi drivers. Due to costly and inflexible deals from the traditional providers, until now it was hardly possible for them to integrate card payment into their business. As a young and dynamic company, payleven offers a mobile and safe alternative without fixed costs, contract term and minimum sales. The registration is also quick and easy. The chip & PIN card reader is currently available at Media Markt for the price of 129€. More importantly, there is only a 2.75% transaction fee per successful payment. The purchase price already includes a transaction balance of 20€. The card reader is controlled via Bluetooth by a free App, which can be installed on Smartphones or Tablets.
