VeriFone Systems today said Visa Ready Program has approved five PAYware Mobile line of EMV-enabled mobile point of sale (mPOS) devices.
The Visa Ready program is designed to ensure that devices, software and solutions used to initiate or accept Visa payments are compatible with Visa’s requirements.
By adopting PAYware Mobile devices that are Visa Ready approved, merchants enjoy the benefits of secure electronic payment acceptance from virtually any location, said VeriFone Systems.
Bill Nelson, executive vice president of Global Product Management and Services for VeriFone, said: “By validating the security of our mPOS technology, the Visa Ready approval gives our clients added peace of mind in knowing that they are better managing and growing their business with mPOS solutions that enhance payment security.”
PAYware Mobile solutions from VeriFone enable retailers and merchants to extend the POS to new environments. PAYware Mobile devices feature universal, Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant mPOS adapters that transform smartphones and tablets into secure devices that can accept contactless, chip and PIN and traditional mag-stripe card payments.
VeriFone Systems said some devices also accept NFC payments and feature high-end barcode scanning for additional functionality such as remote inventory management, checkout and access to product information.
