Apriva, a provider of end-to-end wireless transactions and secure information solutions, has partnered with EVO Merchant Services, a credit card processor in the US and Canada, to provide an EVO-branded payment processing application compatible with iPhone version 3G, 3GS and 4 devices, as well as with browser-based phones. The new application, EVO Mobile Pay, uses Apriva’s AprivaPay mobile payment software. EVO Mobile Pay is available through EVO’s sales channels. EVO also anticipates introducing an Android version of its EVO Mobile Pay application in the near future.
Designed for mobile businesses, EVO Mobile Pay is fully reliable and secure mobile payment application that allows merchants to conduct real-time credit card transactions from any location using their mobile device of choice. Based on the AprivaPay mobile payment software, EVO Mobile Pay provides merchants with a number of features suitable for swiped or keyed transactions, including signature capture, and printing receipts through optional reader/printers. EVO Mobile Pay’s encryption/security meets or exceeds all leading standards.
“Like many other providers, we are looking to satisfy the growing interest that merchants are exhibiting for mobile payment software,” said Jeff Rosenblatt, president of EVO. “Our challenge was to find a scalable software solution that provides all the functionality and security our customers expect, but gives us the flexibility to offer it as an EVO-branded product. AprivaPay gives EVO the best opportunity to achieve these objectives. It is a robust, efficient, yet extremely intuitive payment solution that enables us to quickly deliver a branded solution directly to our sales partners.”
