Spire Payments, one of the world’s leading payment solution providers, has again demonstrated its market leading mobile payments experience by gaining “Groupement des Cartes Bancaires” (GIE CB) CB5.2 approval for its latest mPOS device (SPm20).
Integrated with a payment solution developed by Nepting, this achievement is a significant step towards national roll-out.
This certification was achieved with the collaboration of Nepting, the innovative payment platform provider, utilising Spire Payments’ highly secure mPOS device: the SPm20. This pocket sized, chip & PIN SRED-compliant secure mobile payment device with contactless and NFC capabilities meets the complex security requirements expected of a leading mobile payment acceptance solution. The SPm20 has been integrated with Nepting’s payment platform which also supports Spire Payments’ PosMate Smart, the first mPOS device to be certified by GIE CB. The Nepting platform supports not only secure mPOS devices interfacing with tablets and smart phones, but also traditional POS terminals and e-Commerce channels in order to provide a highly secure PCI DSS-compliant omnichannel payment platform. Spire Payments’ strategic alliance with Nepting targets merchants’ and consumers’ growing need for a wide variety of payment devices able to address a highly networked omnichannel payment market characterized by increasingly sophisticated mobile devices.
Martine Aubry, Nepting’s founder and CEO, stated “Following our significant success with the PosMate Smart, it was a natural progression to work with Spire Payments to expand our solution offering. This accreditation is truly a major achievement for the French card payment market and has only been made possible by the close partnership between ourselves and Spire Payments. Integrating the SPm20 with our payment platform has been a seamless exercise thanks to Spire Payments’ powerful API which is shared across its entire mPOS range.”
Kazem Aminaee, CEO and President of Spire Payments added, “This is yet another significant milestone for Spire Payments and represents a decisive step in our expansion in the global mobile payments market. At present we offer three mPOS solutions, the Posmate Smart, SPm2 and SPm20 which meet the needs of all merchant verticals and market sectors. Combining this powerful product suite with the vast experience of our partners (including Nepting), has resulted in over 100,000 of our chip & PIN mPOS devices being shipped to date. ”
