Verifone Announces Comprehensive and Flexible
Mobile Point-of-Sale Solution for Merchants of All Sizes
Addition of Verifone e265 mPOS Solution Brings All-in-One Payment Acceptance and eCommerce Capabilities to Merchants in all Environments
San Jose, Calif. – December 8, 2015 - Verifone (NYSE: PAY), the world’s leader in payments and commerce solutions, today announced the latest addition to its mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) portfolio. The Verifone e265 offers independent and micro merchants the flexibility to accept all major payment types and integrate with smart devices for value-added commerce capabilities.
MPOS FOR ON-THE-GO MERCHANTS
Verifone e265 is a highly reliable, durable, and compact mPOS terminal that can be paired with any smart phone or tablet. It enables merchants to bring globally certified card payment acceptance including EMV, contactless/NFC, mobile wallet and traditional magnetic stripe directly to consumers in any merchant environment—helping to bridge the gap in markets that are still converting from cash to cards.
“Imagine those merchants in hard-to-reach places where simply adding the power of accepting card payments can really change their game,” said Glen Robson, executive vice president, Global Head of Terminal Solutions, Verifone. “On the other side of the spectrum, Verifone e265 is an ideal mPOS solution for merchants that want to offer value-added services to increase traffic and revenue with a multi-channel approach to commerce right at their fingertips.”
COMMERCE AND EFFICIENCY CAPABILITIES
Merchants will have the ability to connect their online and offline sales channels by integrating Verifone e265 with any type of smart tablet. Tablet integration enables merchants to access ecommerce apps available to deliver digital coupons, loyalty and rewards during check out. In addition, merchants can increase operational efficiency by integrating with a variety of business apps such as those used for tracking clients and inventory.
THE ULTIMATE IN MPOS FLEXIBILITY
Until now, many merchants have had to choose from two restrictive scenarios: use “fobs” or dongles that plug into audio ports with limited payment functionality, or be bound to a payment terminal that only supports one particular type of consumer smart device and operating system. Thanks to the Verifone e265, clients serving a diverse population of merchants worldwide, including independent and micro merchants, can offer greater choice, freedom, security, and speed to market.
Key features of the Verifone e265:
- Meets latest PCI requirements - PCI PTS 4.0 approved
- Supports all device form factors and compatible with Windows, Android, and iOS
- Features highly durable design outfitted with scratch and impact-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass® display lens
- Certified globally for EMV, contactless/NFC, security and country specific approvals, and accepts all major payment types
- Connects through Bluetooth (wireless) and micro-USB for charging and OS updates (wired)
- Features replaceable, high-capacity lithium ion battery that extends usage and minimizes business interruptions
- Supports Verifone’s library of embedded applications for speed to market
“Many of our channel clients, especially those serving merchants in regions such as Southern Europe and Latin America, are experiencing high demand for a cost-effective, feature-rich mPOS solution,” said Robson. “This latest addition to Verifone’s portfolio of solutions provides them with an affordable offering for merchants of all sizes that demand flexibility, reliability and longevity from their technology investments.”
