Business solutions firm Payment Alliance International (PAI) and mPOS developer CardFlight have entered a partnership agreement that will allow PAI to use CardFlight’s EMV solutions.
Under the terms of the agreement, PAI will gain access to CardFlight’s EMV mPOS technology, allowing the firm to offer greater payment solutions for its consumer and merchant network.
‘‘CardFlight’s solution is a perfect fit for PAI and our clients,’’ said John J. Leehy III, president and chief executive officer for PAI.
PAI’s customer base consists mainly of small business owners who operate throughout the United States.
Through the partnership, CardFlight’s SwipeSimple mPOS product will be offered under the name PAImobile Plus, allowing merchants to accept electronic payments via a smartphone and tablet.
‘‘Mobile payments are an exciting part of how today’s retailing gets done, and having an EMV-capable solution gives PAI customers a real advantage,’’ continued Leehy.
CardFlight’s SwipeSimple solution will give PAI’s customers more accessibility when accepting mobile payments via an Android and iOS device. CardFlight will also be responsible for processing any transactions made via the PAImobile Plus.
‘‘PAI is a leader in the payments industry with a successful track record of partnering with distributors, independent sales organizations and financial institutions to serve tens of thousands of merchants,’’ said Derek Webster, founder and chief executive officer for CardFlight.
‘‘We’re excited to be working with PAI to enable merchants to accept payments and perform a multitude of back-office functions on mobile devices.’’
