SIX is introducing mPRIME, which allows payments via a merchant’s tablet or smartphone (iOS or Android).
All major credit and debit cards are covered (Visa, V PAY, Mastercard, Maestro, American Express, PostFinance, Diners Club, Discover, UnionPay and JCB). Contactless payments using NFC and billing in customers’ home currency (DDC) are also provided. For large companies, it can also be enhanced with a barcode scanner and integrated into existing cash register systems.
Roger Niederer, Head Merchant Services at SIX Payment Services, says: “With the new mobile payment terminal, we are responding to the growing demand for mobile points of sale and also supporting smaller merchants with straightforward, modern payment solutions.”
mPRIME is now available in Switzerland. SIX is planning roll-out in Luxembourg and Austria for spring 2018.
