Following a trial of VeriFone’s mobile checkout payment solution, footwear retailer, Finish Line, is deploying 1,600 of the countertop multimedia MX 915 systems and 3,200 PAYware Mobile Enterprise mobile card acceptance devices for the iPod touch, from the electronic payment solutions company (view press release).
The VeriFone MX 915 is the slim, space-saving member of the MX 900 line, which delivers multimedia, content and payments to transform the traditional point-of-sale into a dynamic and intelligent point of engagement between retailers and consumers.
The PAYware Mobile Enterprise card encryption reader, with integrated 2-D bar code scanner, works with all forms of electronic payment including magnetic stripe, chip and PIN, and contactless/NFC-enabled cards and phones. The mobile payment solution has been created to reduce long lines at the register by arming the store associate with a way to accept payments on the floor at the point of interaction.
Full deployment of the chain’s 638 locations is expected by mid-November.
