Mobile POS outfit payLeven has secured a deal with the Italian post office to distribute its Chip & PIN card readers from 14,000 Posta Italiana and BancoPosta offices nationwide.
Using the payleven Chip & PIN card reader, SMEs as well as freelancers can accept debit and credit cards through an app on their smartphone or tablet.
The distribution deal with Posta Italiana kicks off in October. Users are required to have an existing BancoPosta account or will need to open a new account to use the technology.
"This new way to accept mobile card payments combines safety, ease of use and affordable pricing", says Carolina Gianardi, Head of Retail at BancoPosta. "With this co-operation Poste Italiane is expanding its attractive value added services for small and medium sized businesses through keeping a constant eye on innovation."
The latest distribution deal for payleven comes just months after the vendor made its Chip & PIN card reader available for anyone to buy off the shelf in Apple retail stores and on the Apple online store across Europe.
