ViVOtech, the leader in Near Field Communication (NFC) and contactless payment systems, today announced that its ViVOpay 5000 is now available to participants in Visa payWave programs throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa (CEMEA), Latin America and Canada.
The ViVOpay 5000 reader received the Visa payWave Level 2 Type approval for Visa's Contactless Payment Specifications version 2.0.2, providing qVSDC 2.0.2 and MSD 2.0.2 functionality. This approval adds to the previous Visa approvals of ViVOtech products used in Visa payWave programs in Asia-Pacific and the U.S.
ViVOtech has shipped ViVOpay readers to a wide variety of merchants in 27 countries all over the world. The ViVOpay 5000 has proved to be the company's best selling product in countries where EMV smart cards are currently being adopted in record numbers. As part of a rigorous process to support Visa Contactless Payment Specification version 2.0.2, ViVOtech submitted ViVOpay 5000 to an independent laboratory to undergo extensive testing.
"The approval of our ViVIOpay 5000 readers by Visa enables us to continue our support for Visa payWave programs in important regions around the globe, said Mohammad Khan, President and Founder of ViVOtech. "It is gratifying to see the adoption of contactless payments are growing throughout the world as more and more retail customers are embracing new technologies that ensure a quick, easy and secure way to pay."
