The partnership will enable Boomtown’s U.S.-based merchant acquirer and independent sales organization clients to offer CardFlight’s SwipeSimple payment acceptance solution to merchants. An EMV capable POS system, SwipeSimple is available as both a mobile or countertop register version and comes with back office reporting software to help businesses manage their inventory and operations. The SwipeSimple Register version (pictured right) was launched earlier this spring and offers paper receipt printing, advanced discounting options, and more.
In the press release, Boomtown CEO Alfred “Chip” Kahn IV said that CardFlight is a great partner “because their technology exceeds expectations by combining advanced features, reliability, and simplicity.” Some of those features include leveraging Bluetooth Low Energy to support EMV and contactless payments, offering an app that allows merchants to use their own device for mobile POS, and using a virtual terminal for card not present transactions.
CardFlight CEO and Founder Derek Webster added, “The partnership between Boomtown and CardFlight is natural, because Boomtown is the leader in providing remarkable support to SMBs, while CardFlight’s payment acceptance technology was made with the needs of SMBs in mind.”
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 New York-based company debuted its technology at FinovateSpring 2013, showing off the first iteration of its API/SDK. In May, CardFlight announced another distribution partnership with payment technology company Paya. CardFlight has raised a total of $6.6 million.
