Payleven, Europe's leading mobile payments company for small and medium sized businesses, announces the launch of its 11th market.
Irish business owners can handle card payments as of today without fixed costs, contractual obligations or minimum sales through payleven's Chip & PIN card reader. As a gift for all Irish business owners, payleven offers an exclusive introductory price of 64 EUR for the card reader.
Konstantin Wolff, founder and CMO of payleven says: "It is our aim to deliver easy-to-use and smart technology solutions that help our customers to enhance their business. Ireland has a huge market potential with a large number of businesses that still don't accept card payments. With a smartphone penetration of over 60% and more than 6 million debit and credit cards in circulation, we see a strong need for our affordable solution."
Hailo, a successfully operating e-hail app company, offers payment solutions by card with payleven's Chip & PIN card reader in Ireland since January 2015. More than 500 taxi drivers are currently using the device in the United Kingdom.
Niall Jackson, Hailo Operation Analyst: "payleven affords Irish taxi drivers a seamless method of integrating card payments into their working lives, benefitting customers in turn by ensuring they can choose from a wide variety of payment methods. We at Hailo appreciate the launch of payleven in Ireland, furthering SMEs' ability to support card payments."
