CardFlight Releases EMV-Ready Chip Card Readers for its SwipeSimple Mobile POS

By CIOReview | Friday, March 27, 2015

NEW YORK, NY: Mobile point of sale (POS) technology provider CardFlight, announces the availability of EMV-ready chip card readers for its SwipeSimple mobile point of sale solution.

EMV chip card solutions deployment requires a rigorous set of integrations, certifications and approvals.  CardFlight is already in certification testing with multiple processors and expects to achieve full certification with multiple providers during the second quarter of 2015.

“While some providers have announced plans to offer mobile EMV card readers, CardFlight is one of the first to actually make them available for purchase and deployment in the United States," says Derek Webster, Founder and CEO of CardFlight.

The EMV-ready card readers pair with CardFlight's SwipeSimple mobile POS solution.  SwipeSimple includes encrypted mobile card readers, payment acceptance applications for iOS and Android devices, a real-time reporting and admin dashboard for merchants, and a reseller portal for easy onboarding and portfolio management.  Transactions are processed through CardFlight's PCI-DSS Level 1 Compliant payment gateway.  

SwipeSimple is a product of CardFlight, although CardFlight does not sell the product to merchants directly.  Rather, SwipeSimple is offered by a network of dozens of resellers including banks, merchant service providers and independent sales organizations.  The solution can be co-branded or white-labeled to feature each reseller's logo and other pertinent details.

Additionally, the company will be announcing POS Portal as a launch partner in distributing CardFlight's EMV-ready solutions.   "CardFlight and POS Portal already serve many of the same customers.  We're excited to now offer their EMV-ready solutions to the hundreds of our partners that rely on us every day for hardware procurement and deployment," says Joe Villamil, VP Business Development at POS Portal.
