CardFlight, a mobile point of sale (POS) technology provider and Security Card Services (SCS), a bank-focused merchant services provider based in the southeast, today announced their partnership to offer CardFlight's SwipeSimple solution to SCS merchants, enabling them to accept EMV chip card payments on the go.
SwipeSimple is a turnkey mobile payment acceptance platform that includes an EMV-enabled mobile chip card reader, a mobile application for iOS and Android, and a back office reporting portal for business owners to take payments and manage their business. As a part of the agreement SCS will be offering a white label version of SwipeSimple to their ISOs and merchants nationwide, branded as Mobile Pocket.
"CardFlight offers the latest mobile POS technology and security, and that is important to us", said Joan Kuykendall, SVP Product and Customer Experience at SCS. "Having an easy to use, EMV-enabled mobile point-of-sale solution is very critical to our merchants."
"We are excited to partner with SCS and to enable their merchants to grow their business by accepting EMV payments from anywhere", said Derek Webster, Founder & CEO at CardFlight.
CardFlight was one of first mobile payments providers to deploy EMV solutions in the United States, receiving their first approvals prior to the October 1, 2015 Liability Shift. They recently announced in their EMV Migration Tracker that 73% of their merchants are enabled to accept EMV chip card payments, more than 2.5 times the national average.
