Apriva, iPayment extend partnership on EMV mPOS
Apriva and iPayment Inc. announced that they have extended their partnership to provide EMV-capable products to small and mid-size businesses using mobile points of sale, according to a press release.
The companies said that this extension of iPayment's point-of-sale products brings EMV functionality to customers using the iPayment MobilePay application.
MobilePay is a white-label version of the AprivaPay Plus solution that turns Apple, Android and Amazon Fire devices into mobile points of sale, according to the announcement. The companies said that this streamlined app is ideal for small and medium-size businesses, and can be used in any number of venues — storefront or mobile. The product delivers EMV and mag stripe debit and credit card acceptance; cloud-based inventory management; multi-user capability; language localization (English, French, Spanish); two-factor authentication and device tracking; robust reporting features for merchants via an online Web companion portal; the latest device and operating system compatibility; and compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act 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. "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."
