Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Apriva added AprivaPay Plus to its extended line of secure mobile commerce solutions. Designed for small and midsize merchants, the mobile payment solution pairs Android, iOS and Amazon Kindle Fire smart phones and tablets with AnywhereCommerce Walker 1.0 card reader peripherals.


The company stated that the competitively priced Europay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV)-certified application is widely adaptable to fixed and retail settings and supports a range of payment card brands and schemes, including Visa Inc., MasterCard Worldwide, American Express Co., Discover Financial Services and Samsung Pay. And AprivaPay Plus facilitates enhanced reporting and inventory management and is available to Apriva's reseller partners.

"Anyone investing in a mPOS solution needs to be up to date," said Benjamin Hurley, Senior Director, Mobile Product Management at Apriva. "AprivaPay Plus was the only EMV-certified, brandable mPOS solution available on the date of the liability shift," which occurred Oct. 1, 2015. The solution is certified on multiple payment processors, including First Data's Omaha platform, enabling resellers to upgrade existing customers and offer multiple processing platforms to new merchants, Hurley noted.

Apriva noted that its portfolio of secure mobile commerce solutions includes AprivaTalk, a wireless security payment encryption protocol. Apriva solutions work seamlessly across all major wireless carriers and are widely used by payment processors, merchant acquirers and ISOs in the United States and Canada.
