Transaction Network Services (TNS) has partnered with Blue Bamboo to enable independent sales organisations (ISOs), acquirers and processors across North America to offer their customers the ability to accept credit and debit payments through smartphone devices.
Organisations connected to TNS’ Synapse wireless payment gateway will be able to extend their acquiring opportunities to a new segment of merchants who are interested in using smartphone devices to accept card payments from their customers.
John Perry, general manager of the Americas for TNS’ payments division, said: “The smart phone merchant solutions from TNS and Blue Bamboo pair a magnetic stripe reader with built-in printer for capturing card present transactions. The solution allows merchants to print a physical receipt and to send an electronic receipt via email. Most importantly, it provides robust security and reliability through the use of the TNS PCI DSS certified Synapse payment gateway. We are very happy to partner with Blue Bamboo to offer ISOs a solution that brings their merchants a secure, fully managed service that can help lower the costs of accepting cards.”
