You know that moment when you realize something’s about to change?

Many hit the “pause” button. They take a split second to think—if the risk is low, there’s zero friction. They just do it. But the bigger the change, the longer it can take to hit “play” and move forward.

Here at Verifone we never stop thinking about that moment. Because locked inside it is momentum—an impulse for what’s new, what’s next, what’s better.

We focus on moments of change because money is energy—like language and storytelling, money has connected us and powered progress since ancient times. It took thousands of years for commerce to emerge from a friction-filled world of bartering and currencies of whale teeth, fei stones, crops, cattle, and coins. But even across the vast electronic payment system of today, our deep human need to connect remains the same.

Like language and storytelling, money has connected us and powered progress since ancient times.

As a global leader, Verifone has led change on this grand cultural stage for decades. We’ve forged a path into the era of Connected Commerce by challenging the status quo, solving problems, and mining for momentum with merchants, resellers, partners, and developers.

To us, Connected Commerce means capitalizing on opportunities—igniting ideas in an open, cloud-based ecosystem. And energizing people through a fusion of personalization, social shopping, mobility, and connected devices.

Connected Commerce also means adapting to a different way of thinking for a new reality. From smartphones to smart homes, stunning advances in design and user experience have conditioned people to expect that merchants will recognize them the instant they walk in the door and make everything simple, fast, and fun. So when shoppers discover stores that work as well as their favorite app, they reward these stores with their business!

At Verifone, reducing the friction of change is nothing new. It’s why we’re so focused on helping clients around the world transform the point of sale into a powerful new point of strength. It’s why we’re building bold platforms, strengthening our products, and unlocking new revenue streams.
