Global Payments has teamed up with Apriva to offer white label, EMV-enabled mobile payment solutions to its US merchant base.
Global Payments is a Fortune 1000 company that caters for merchants and partners across 29 countries, allowing them to accept payments through multiple services.
Through its new partnership with wireless transaction specialists Apriva, Global will be able to provide new payment solutions to its customers, including AprivaPay Plus.
Apriva’s payments application enables Apple and Android smartphones to be transformed into mPOS devices, allowing small and mid-sized merchants in the United States to accept mobile payments.
‘‘Our society is increasingly dependent on mobile technologies, and payments are no exception,’’ explained Stacey Finley Tappin, senior vice president, North America sales and marketing communications at Apriva.
‘‘By working with companies like Global Payments, we are making EMV capable mobile payment solutions available to a wider market, enabling merchants to securely serve their customer base no matter what payment methods the consumer prefers,’’ continued Tappin.
Apriva has entered into a number of strategic partnerships this year in order to improve its product and expand its customer reach. In January, the payments firm announced a new partnership with POS on Cloud, in order to improve its Point of Sale (POS) platform.
More recently, Apriva joined forces with Miura Systems to enable chip and pin usage on Miura’s platform.
