Handpoint offer mobile payment solutions to individuals and businesses world wide. With Handpoint, customers can accept chip&PIN card payments with their smartphones, tablets, handhelds and PCs. Moreover, the company has a complete end-to-end payment solution including a fully hosted PCI-DSS certified payment gateway for both authorisations  and settlements.

In the final part of this interview we gain an insight into what make Handpoint unique in the currently saturated mobile payments space. Moreover, we unravel the burning issues behing the mobile wallet concept.

“There’s almost a new entrant in the space every month now! They are all focussed on micro-merchants, the ones that are new to accepting card payments. We are focussing on the SMB’s and enterprise allowing them to use their own applications without certification. We are disrupting the current payment establishment which is our competition.”  Said David Gudjonsson.
