Apriva, the leading provider of secure end-to-end wireless transaction processing solutions, and iPayment, Inc., a premier provider of payment solutions and processing services, today announced that they have extended their partnership to provide EMV capable solutions to small and mid-sized businesses (SMB) using mobile points of sale.
This extension of iPayment’s point of sale (POS) solutions brings EMV functionality to customers using their mobile payment application, iPayment MobilePay.
iPayment MobilePay is a unique white-labeled version of Apriva’s AprivaPay™ Plus solution that turns Apple®, AndroidTM and Amazon Fire devices into mobile points of sale, enabling SMB customers to meet the growing demand for mobile purchases. This streamlined application is ideal for small and medium-sized businesses, and can be used in any number of venues – storefront or mobile. The solution delivers EMV chip card debit and credit acceptance, magstripe card acceptance, cloud based inventory, multi-user capability, language localization (English, French, Spanish), two-factor authentication and device tracking for added security, robust reporting features to merchants via an online web companion portal, the latest device and operating system compatibility, and compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations.
“Mobile acceptance is critical for our customers and EMV compliance is increasingly important as their customers, the consumers, expect to be able to use their chip cards and transact in a secure environment,” said Greg Cohen, President of iPayment, Inc. “Our partnership with Apriva allows us to provide not just EMV capabilities, but a wide variety of payment and commerce solutions to our channel partners, SMB customers and their end-customers, all from one easy mobile application.”
Apriva and iPayment, Inc. have had a long-standing partnership to bring flexible payment solutions to merchants. Apriva’s connections with over 35 processors allow merchants to choose the right partners for their business, while also delivering a wide variety of choice in payments to their consumers and secure connections.
“Many small to medium sized businesses using mobile devices have not yet upgraded their payment solutions for EMV acceptance because of the general lack of availability in the marketplace. AprivaPay Plus is unique in that it has been EMV certified on multiple payment processors,” said Stacey Finley Tappin, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Communications at Apriva. “iPayment MobilePay now offers a low cost EMV solution to businesses that can be deployed on a wide variety of smartphones and tablets, enabling compliance for businesses of all sizes.”
