Verifone (NYSE: PAY) today announced that one of Chile’s largest payment processing networks—Multicaja—has begun deploying Verifone’s 3G wireless payment terminal solution to enable merchants throughout Chile to enhance the consumer experience by securely accepting all forms of payment from beyond the counter—in any retail environment.
Proven exceptional value
Following a competitive evaluation process, Multicaja selected the Verifone VX 520 3G for its exceptional value and functionality, which includes an integrated color screen, PCI 3.0 compliance and the ability to accept EMV, NFC and all other forms of payment. Multicaja expects to deploy the solution to its new merchant clients throughout 2015.
Multicaja connects businesses, banks and consumers across all Chilean regions with its network that processed more than 115 million transactions in 2014. Verifone’s wireless terminal solution supports Multicaja’s gateway services, which are used by more than 5,000 chains and stores to process a multitude of transactions including purchases, bill payment, PayPal redemption, deposits and withdrawals, insurance sales and lottery ticket purchases.
“Multicaja’s payment processing network is the largest in Chile because of our commitment to the success of our merchant clients,” said Pamela Cuzmar, Chief of Technology and Operations, Multicaja. “Verifone’s terminal solution provides us with reliable, future-proof devices—backed by decades of payment technology leadership—that enrich our offerings and enable us to continue meeting our commitment to merchants.”
