PAYM8 launch a new SoftPOS solution in partnership with WIZZIT

Mar 22, 2023

22-03-2023 11:40:09 | by: Bob Koigi | hits: 174 | Tags: Financial gateway service provider, PAYM8, in partnership with WIZZIT, has introduced its Tap-on-Phone SoftPOS solution. The solution offers an innovative alternative to traditional point-of-sale devices and will give PAYM8 customers a safe, easy way to pay that can be used anywhere. The solution meets PCI (Payment Card Industry) and EMV (Europay, MasterCard, and Visa) requirements. Included in the offering is the ability to do TT3 Debi-Check mandates, adding to and enhancing TT1 and TT2 capabilities with real-time ‘‘Customer Present’’ mandate authentication. Tap-on-phone technology is powerful, flexible, secure and now more cost-effective than ever. The solution is compatible with Android phones and is approved by Visa and Mastercard. PAYM8 CEO Andrew Springate says, “Efficient payments are now more important for businesses than ever before. Tap-on-Phone is a fast, secure and highly mobile authentication channel for DebiCheck. It offers frictionless payment functionality at a fraction of the cost.” PAYM8 worked closely with technology partner WIZZIT to deliver a solution that combines DebiCheck TT3 and Tap-on-Phone technology. John Staley, WIZZIT CEO, notes: “Tap-on-Phone transactions are secure and use the same encryption technology found in chip cards throughout the world. The technology offers merchants and consumers a convenient and easy payment method by leveraging merchants' smartphones as payment devices.” Springate adds that the DebiCheck functionality protects merchants and credit providers from debtors needlessly disputing debit orders as a means of managing their cash flow which is why it was included in PAYM8’s SoftPOS solution. “We are pleased to answer modern consumers’ demand for efficient payment services while meeting organisations’ requirements for seamless behind-the-scenes functionality.”  [Column] Mark Wilson: The ERP and technology trends that will shape 2023 Even with pandemic-related restrictions now a thing of the past, many reopened enterprises have quickly realised the market is not what it used to be ... read full column here [Column] David Meintjes: Unified communication and collaboration trends for 2023 As businesses continue evolving to meet changing customer behaviour, the uptake and investment in cloud unified communications platforms and tools will continue to soar ... read full column here [Column] Mikhail Marchenko: Major fintech trends that will affect online businesses in 2023 The rise of mobile financial services has been promoted by the advent of mobile money that enables users to access cash through their mobile devices .... read full column here INTERVIEWS.
