Paysafe launches EMV-enabled global omni-channel services through expanded partnership with Handpoint

Oct 25, 2016

Paysafe (LSE: PAYS.L), a leading global provider of payment solutions, has expanded its long-term partnership with Handpoint, the award-winning FinTech provider powering NextGen point of sale (POS), to offer EMV-ready mobile point of sale and online payment solutions to merchants and partners in Canada, the US and Europe. Through this partnership, Paysafe offers end-to-end frictionless payments online, in-store and through mobile devices and tablets.

The global solution supports Paysafe’s growing Integrated Partnership Channel. This provides Value Added Resellers and Independent Software Vendors and Software-as-a-Service companies, such as Membership Management Platforms, Donor Management Platforms and Field Service Software Applications, with the ability to take in-person or online payments using a solution that is directly integrated into their technology platforms.

According to a Forrester report*, business suppliers are racing to meet buyer demands driven by consumer online buying experiences. 83% of B2B sellers are either in the process of upgrading/implementing their eCommerce suite or planning to do so within six months. Paysafe’s omni-channel solutions enable merchants to accept credit cards, debit cards and ACH (Direct Debit) payments through its PCI-DSS compliant payment gateway. The solutions offer tokenization to protect and safely store customer data, and use Paysafe’s state-of-the-art REST APIs and SDKs for seamless integration.

The new Paysafe MPOS mobile app for iOS and Android is built exclusively to work with Handpoint’s secure mobile payments solution, and is perfect for merchants looking to accept in-field payments. Software developers can also choose to integrate user-friendly SDKs for mobile platforms and cloud-based POS to take advantage of Paysafe and Handpoint’s end-to-end mobile EMV solution: P2PE security, pre-certified EMV, fast and easy merchant activation, and remote terminal management.

Danny Chazonoff, Chief Operating Officer at Paysafe, commented: “As the payments landscape evolves, integrated payment solutions are becoming increasingly important to a merchant’s payment offering. With our global reach and support of local payment methods through a single integration to our proprietary gateway platform, our Integrated Partnership Program is one of the most complete in the market today. Our omni-channel capabilities, supported by our long-standing relationship with Handpoint, further solidify our value proposition for our partners and merchants around the world.” 

David Gudjonsson, CEO and co-founder of Handpoint, said: “Our complementary relationship with Paysafe allows us to work together on deploying multi-channel payment solutions to businesses and merchants worldwide. We’re excited to continue to support Paysafe with our award-winning mPOS and POS solutions.”

Paysafe and Handpoint are exhibiting at the Money 2020 show in Las Vegas on October 24-26 where they will provide demos of mPOS and POS solutions at booth 2434.
