Paysafe launches EMV-enabled global omni-channel
Through the expanded partnership with Handpoint Paysafe offers end-to-end frictionless payments online, in-store and through mobile devices and tablets.
Paysafe has expanded its long-term partnership with Handpoint, the award-winning FinTech provider powering NextGen point of sale (POS), to offer EMV-ready mobile point of sale and online payment solutions to merchants and partners in Canada, the US and Europe. Through this partnership, Paysafe offers end-to-end frictionless payments online, in-store and through mobile devices and tablets. The global solution supports Paysafe’s growing Integrated Partnership Channel. This provides Value Added Resellers and Independent Software Vendors and Software-as-a-Service companies, such as Membership Management Platforms, Donor Management Platforms and Field Service Software Applications, with the ability to take in-person or online payments using a solution that is directly integrated into their technology platforms. According to a Forrester report, business suppliers are racing to meet buyer demands driven by consumer online buying experiences. 83% of B2B sellers are either in the process of upgrading/implementing their e-commerce suite or planning to do so within six months. Paysafe’s omni-channel solutions enable merchants to accept credit cards, debit cards and ACH (Direct Debit) payments through its PCI-DSS compliant payment gateway. The solutions offer tokenization to protect and safely store customer data, and use Paysafe’s state-of-the-art REST APIs and SDKs for seamless integration.

Danny Chazonoff, Chief Operating Officer at Paysafe, commented: “As the payments landscape evolves, integrated payment solutions are becoming increasingly important to a merchant’s payment offering. With our global reach and support of local payment methods through a single integration to our proprietary gateway platform, our Integrated Partnership Program is one of the most complete in the market today. Our omni-channel capabilities, supported by our long-standing relationship with Handpoint, further solidify our value proposition for our partners and merchants around the world.” David Gudjonsson, CEO and co-founder of Handpoint, said: “Our complementary relationship with Paysafe allows us to work together on deploying multichannel payment solutions to businesses and merchants worldwide. We’re excited to continue to support Paysafe with our award-winning mPOS and POS solutions.” Paysafe and Handpoint exhibited at the Money20/20 show in Las Vegas where they provided demos of mPOS and POS solutions.
