CardFlight, the leading SaaS payment technology company, today announced it has partnered with Payroc, a leading merchant acquirer and payment processing organization, to support small businesses nationwide in weathering the impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The companies have collaborated to provide merchants from highly impacted industries with access to SwipeSimple, CardFlight’s signature payment acceptance solution, for no additional charge through July 31, 2020. The addition of SwipeSimple enables these restaurants and specialty food businesses to collect payment at the curbside as they rapidly pivot their businesses in order to continue serving customers.
“At CardFlight, we’re committed to small businesses and the channel that supports them best,” said Marla Knutson, Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships. “We’re grateful to the team at Payroc for working with us to put this program into action so quickly to help merchants across the U.S. during this crisis.”
SwipeSimple has been added to existing Payroc merchant accounts for restaurants and other specialty food businesses, who have been especially affected as more cities and states enact social distancing measures preventing traditional retail transactions. The merchants supported through this program are primarily food and beverage merchants required to transition to take-out and delivery service only. By adding SwipeSimple features at no additional charge, CardFlight and Payroc have enabled merchants’ efforts to rapidly pivot to supporting curbside, contactless, and back-office payments during the pandemic.
“We are dedicated to helping our merchants make it through this unprecedented time,” said Adam Bloomston, President at Payroc. “When CardFlight came to us with the idea for this relief program, we were immediately on board. Our teams worked together to implement it and were able to roll this out in less than a week to start helping small business owners right away.”
Small businesses who have received this relief can use SwipeSimple for curbside and other contactless payments. They also gain access to the robust business insights and reporting tools within SwipeSimple, making it easier for merchants to manage and track payments. Trusted by more than 60,000 merchants in all 50 states, SwipeSimple allows small businesses to easily navigate the complex payment landscape, especially during this turbulent time when every transaction can make a difference.
