Verifone (NYSE: PAY) and POS Portal, a ScanSource (NASDAQ: SCSC) company and the nation’s leading provider of secure payment solutions in the U.S., announced today the availability of Verifone Connect, a secure and fully integrated global product that not only enables payment acceptance, but allows businesses to increase consumer engagement and drive efficiency. By distributing payment devices configured with Verifone Connect, POS Portal will be the first to offer a turnkey solution and immediate access to Verifone Connect with certified preconfigured payment devices.
With payment services, estate management, and merchant- and consumer-facing apps available for POS Portal payment devices, merchants will easily conquer technical hurdles like security set-up, device configurations, and compatibility with their existing software and systems. Verifone Connect also simplifies EMV payment acceptance with the highest level of PCI certification, so merchants can focus on managing and growing their business.
“Simplicity is revered, no matter your role in the commerce chain, as payment integrations can be challenging. Our partners need a solution that makes device configuration, compatibility, and security easier to set up, so Verifone Connect just makes sense,” said Scott Agatep, Chief Operating Officer at POS Portal. “POS Portal and Verifone are proud to provide complete, easy-to-implement solutions that lead the way for a growing number of merchants to adopt EMV and contactless payments across the U.S.”
“Verifone Connect is a customizable product for payment service providers, ISOs, software vendors and value-added resellers to leverage with merchants,” said Abizar Vakharia, Senior Vice President, Global Digital Services, Verifone. “Its simplicity is based on a digital experience that manages the onboarding of disparate devices and the seamless integration of payment and non-payment applications with the POS system. As business needs change, apps can be preloaded onto devices or downloaded from the Verifone Connect marketplace for customer engagement, promotions, payroll, inventory management, and other backend operations.”
“We are partnering with leaders like POS Portal to make it possible for merchants to get out of the ‘payment business’ and compete like a big chain,” said Joe Mach, president of Verifone North America. “As the first certified distributor of Verifone Connect, POS Portal will empower more retailers, restaurants and other verticals to increase consumer engagement, lower the cost of ownership, and streamline operations.”
With Verifone Connect as part of a complete solution, POS Portal works with customers through the entire EMV rollout to provide an end-to-end payment solution, from product selection, testing, boarding, and finally to delivering certified Connect-ready devices with full merchant support.
