VeriFone Systems has made its PAYware Merchant managed service available across Europe. The recently announced partnership with Gemalto completes VeriFone’s pan-European sales and distribution network and makes a continental payment gateway service feasible.
PAYware Merchant is a bank-certified, hosted payment solution for large retailers, fuel organisations and hospitality companies. The PCI DSS-compliant payments platform integrates with virtually any front-end point-of-sale (POS) system and provides a cost-effective outsourced payments service that relieves merchants from associated capital expenditures, on-going maintenance, investment and resourcing.
“The Gemalto partnership fills out our pan-European distribution network,” said Shaun Burger, VeriFone vice president and general manager for Northern Europe, Middle East and Africa. “We are now well positioned to execute our European expansion strategy regardless of whether our offer to acquire Hypercom is completed.”
