CardFlight Teams Up with Paya to Bring EMV-Ready mPOS Solutions to Merchants

Mobile POS and SaaS payment solutions provider CardFlight announced a new partnership with payment technology company Paya today. The agreement will enable Paya to offer CardFlight’s SwipeSimple payment acceptance solutions to its merchants.

Paya President Greg Cohen called SwipeSimple a “perfect fit” for its own payment services. “This collaboration allows us to offer our customers an advanced, secure mobile payment solution that helps answer many of their everyday business needs,” Cohen said. Paya has more than 100,000 clients who rely on the Reston, Virginia-based company’s adaptive solutions and two decades of experience in payments technology.

“Paya is one of the leading merchant service providers in the United States because of their commitment to arming their merchants with quality solutions and service,” CardFlight CEO Derek Webster added. “As the leader in EMV enabled card readers and payment acceptance solutions, CardFlight is happy to collaborate with Paya and provide SwipeSimple to their merchants.”

SwipeSimple enables merchant service providers, FIs, and independent sales organizations to offer their business customers a turnkey, EMV-ready mPOS solution. With CardFlight’s platform, Paya’s small business customers will get access to Bluetooth Low Energy or audio jack EMV Quick Chip, NFC contactless-enabled card readers; mobile and web apps to accept payments in-store or remotely; a back office merchant portal for business management and reporting; and a virtual terminal to enable merchants to accept CNP transactions using any device.

Founded in 2013 and headquartered in New York City, CardFlight demonstrated its mobile payment acceptance technology at FinovateSpring 2013. With 15 of the top 50 merchant acquirers in the U.S. among its partners, CardFlight has more than 40,000 small business end user customers, including merchants in all 50 states.
