Payworks, a leading provider of Point of Sale payment infrastructure, announced today that they have extended their partnership with Verifone, a world leader in payments and commerce solutions.
Verifone and Payworks have expanded their years-long partnership with the integration of two devices, the Verifone e355 mPOS and the VX 820 onto the Payworks platform. Backed by the robust devices from Verifone and next generation payment gateway technology from Payworks, this expansion results with two dynamic and powerful pre-certified solutions, both ideal for the retail environment. Through this extended partnership, acquirers and payment service providers are equipped to offer their merchants an easy-to-integrate POS solution.
Built with the retail environment in mind, Verifone’s devices are designed to handle demanding and high-volume settings such as department stores, restaurants and coffee shops. Offering a wealth of features and benefits, Verifone provides acquirers and merchants with the latest solutions needed to make payment acceptance easy. “At Verifone, we are proud to create flexible, highly adaptable devices which are perfect for the modern-day retail environment where the point-of-sale must go beyond the counter to serve customers wherever they are…in the aisles, waiting in lines, or searching online,” says Markus Hoevekamp, VP & GM, Verifone Germany, Spain, Portugal and Italy. “Partnering with Payworks over the years, our payment devices have become an integral part of an even broader portfolio of powerful POS solutions.”
The Payworks platform can be integrated with all acquirers enabling them to turn their current Point of Sale solutions into modern, integrated systems - ready for retailers. Using simple SDKs, acquirers are able to integrate the solution in a matter of minutes, which enables their merchants to have access to the latest payment technologies and hardware. Integrating with Payworks enables acquirers to offer their retailers and merchants acceptance of EMV Chip + PIN, contactless and mobile wallet transactions. The e355 mobile device is currently certified with SIX Payment Services and Concardis and the VX 820 PIN pad is certified with Elavon. Certification for both devices will be extended across Payworks’ global connectivity of acquirers and processors.
“Verifone has been a great partner over the years and we’re excited to move forward by including their mobile and PIN pad solutions on our platform,” commented Christian Deger, CEO & Co-Founder of Payworks. “We aim to give Acquirers the right tools to easily deploy Point of Sale solutions and with a new wave of retailers looking to implement simple and modern systems, we’re positive these new integrations will be a preferred solution.”
