ROAM, an Ingenico company and mobile commerce platform provider, and iPayment, an acquirer, are launching a new programme which will see iPayment using ROAM’s mobile commerce platform to deliver mPOS solutions to merchants throughout the US (view press release). ROAM will provide an end-to-end solution, including the G4X Secure Mobile Card Reader, ROAMpay X4 Mobile POS Application and the myROAM management portal.
“Our merchants and sales partners rely on iPayment to provide best in class mPOS solutions to position them for continued growth in their respective businesses,” says Carl Grimstad, CEO of iPayment. “We partnered with Roam because they understand that each of our small business merchants has unique payment requirements, and that one solution does not fit all.”
ROAM’s platform capabilities support iOS and Android based smartphones and tablets. Its core platform assets include secure readers, applications to support mobile card acceptance, PCI compliance, real time data exchange and merchant onboarding, all of which are available as turnkey solutions that can be deployed as complete white label solutions offering branded hardware, applications and support tools.
