A turnkey mobile POS solution
CardFlight Inc., a provider of mobile POS technology and solutions, has created SwipeSimple, a turnkey solution that acquirers, ISOs, merchant level salespeople (MLSs) and resellers can offer to merchants. According to CardFlight, a reseller portal facilitates easy onboarding and portfolio management, and the CardFlight payment gateway is compatible with most major processors.
SwipeSimple also provides free co-branding, enabling resellers to promote their brands alongside SwipeSimple throughout the mobile payment experience.
SwipeSimple's payment terminal apps work on iOS and Android devices and support multi-merchant and multi-employee accounts. An encrypted payment card reader can be securely fastened to a mobile phone's audio jack and will function without cables or batteries. Merchants can accept payments, track inventory, and manage multiple processing accounts in real-time on a mobile device using CardFlight's administrative dashboard and secure Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) Level 1 gateway, CardFlight noted.
In addition, transactional payment card data is encrypted from card entry to CardFlight servers to the supported payment processing host. Throughout the process, the highest level of TDES data encryption and DUKPT key management are used, guided by PCI-DSS requirements. Each SwipeSimple reader is assigned a unique serial number for tracking, according to CardFlight.
SwipeSimple's infrastructure for decrypting and transmitting card numbers runs on a separate server, and doesn't share any credentials with SwipeSimple's primary services. Physical access to SwipeSimple servers is monitored by security personnel 24 hours a day and requires multiple levels of authentication. CardFlight provides mobile payment technology and software to acquirers, ISOs and MLSs. It doesn't sell or market any solutions or services directly to merchants.
"Many of our customers had been asking for a mobile point-of-sale solution with analytics and reporting capabilities and a reseller portal for onboarding merchants," said Derek Webster, CardFlight founder and Chief Executive Officer. "SwipeSimple packs a lot of features and has an easy and simple user interface for merchants.
"Our reseller clients think of SwipeSimple as their own mobile app that seamlessly connects with their onboard systems and front-end. There are no additional charges or setup fees to display their logos, phone numbers and contact information on the customer-facing devices."
