Verifone (PAY), the world’s leader in payments and commerce solutions, today announced the latest addition to its mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) portfolio.
The Verifone e265 offers independent and micro merchants the flexibility to accept all major payment types and integrate with smart devices for value-added commerce capabilities.
MPOS FOR ON-THE-GO MERCHANTS
Verifone e265 is a highly reliable, durable, and compact mPOS terminal that can be paired with any smart phone or tablet. It enables merchants to bring globally certified card payment acceptance including EMV, contactless/NFC, mobile wallet and traditional magnetic stripe directly to consumers in any merchant environment—helping to bridge the gap in markets that are still converting from cash to cards.
“Imagine those merchants in hard-to-reach places where simply adding the power of accepting card payments can really change their game,” said Glen Robson, executive vice president, Global Head of Terminal Solutions, Verifone. “On the other side of the spectrum, Verifone e265 is an ideal mPOS solution for merchants that want to offer value-added services to increase traffic and revenue with a multi-channel approach to commerce right at their fingertips.”
COMMERCE AND EFFICIENCY CAPABILITIES
Merchants will have the ability to connect their online and offline sales channels by integrating Verifone e265 with any type of smart tablet. Tablet integration enables merchants to access ecommerce apps available to deliver digital coupons, loyalty and rewards during check out. In addition, merchants can increase operational efficiency by integrating with a variety of business apps such as those used for tracking clients and inventory.
THE ULTIMATE IN MPOS FLEXIBILITY
Until now, many merchants have had to choose from two restrictive scenarios: use “fobs” or dongles that plug into audio ports with limited payment functionality, or be bound to a payment terminal that only supports one particular type of consumer smart device and operating system. Thanks to the Verifone e265, clients serving a diverse population of merchants worldwide, including independent and micro merchants, can offer greater choice, freedom, security, and speed to market.

“Many of our channel clients, especially those serving merchants in regions such as Southern Europe and Latin America, are experiencing high demand for a cost-effective, feature-rich mPOS solution,” said Robson. “This latest addition to Verifone’s portfolio of solutions provides them with an affordable offering for merchants of all sizes that demand flexibility, reliability and longevity from their technology investments.”
MPOS CHOICE OF MOBILE DEVICE PROVIDERS
Verifone’s comprehensive eSeries mPOS solutions include the Verifone e355 which is popular among larger retailers that want to enhance operations, improve customer service, build loyalty, and boost their bottom line.
