CardFlight Expands to Offer Payment Terminal Hardware

Payment technology company CardFlight released its SwipeSimple payment terminal today, marking the company’s expansion into the hardware space.

The new terminal integrates into CardFlight’s existing software to offer the company’s 50,000 small business clients an option for a touch screen, EMV-capable payment acceptance tool. In addition to an in-device receipt printer and wired-and-wireless connectivity, the payment terminal also has built-in:

“Today’s launch expands our tested, state-of-the-art payments software to a new medium, making it easier than ever for small business owners across America to build and grow their companies,” said Derek Webster, CardFlight founder and CEO. “Our mission at CardFlight is simple—we’re committed to making payment acceptance fast, dependable, and effortless for business owners in today’s fast-evolving digital world. Bringing our SwipeSimple product to smart terminals as the next step in that mission just made sense.”

The terminal is available in two models. The entry-level version, PAX A80, offers SwipeSimple capabilities in a traditional terminal device, while the PAX A920 has a high-resolution display and a long-lasting battery.

The terminal is currently in private beta and is slated for release later this quarter.

Founded in 2013, CardFlight serves 10 of the top 30 merchant acquirers in the U.S., reaching tens of thousands of merchants across all 50 states. The company debuted its technology at FinovateSpring 2013, showing off the first iteration of its API/SDK.
