The product offering will be two fold, including a card reader for Apple and Android devices and chip reader for vendors to accept payments with swipe and smart chip reading methods, in line with other data phone solutions. The ability to use existing hardware is appealing as it allows mobility of sales staff, and a more attractive method of payment, as most customers in Latin America traditionally use cash for onsite transactions.
The new services are in compliance with EMV (Europay, MasterCard and VISA) standards in addition to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), thus allowing ease of expansion into other regional markets where these standards are a must. All data transmitted through the devices are not stored onsite and is encrypted.
