Relationship provides software development partners with integrated access to leading payments technology services, simplifies EMV and NFC transition for tablet-based POS using the PowaPOS SDK
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (ETA TRANSACT 15) APRIL 2, 2015 – Powa Technologies today announced that ISVs using the PowaPOS Software Developer Kit (SDK) gain instant, integrated access to global payments and technology services provider Worldpay. With this relationship, a rapidly-growing list of POS software developers can now directly connect to Worldpay‘s payments technology services – along with the advanced PowaPOS T25 tablet-based hardware – via the single and simple to use PowaPOS SDK.
“Since the launch of our SDK less than a year ago, a rapidly-growing list of the world’s leading software developers have completed integration with PowaPOS, and are now showcasing their apps with our next generation T25 hardware,” said Jeff Dumbrell, CEO of PowaPOS. “Now, with Worldpay, not only do we take another step toward eliminating the friction and complication that has kept tablet-based payments from reaching its full market potential, but we also dramatically simplify and expedite the migration to EMV and NFC in the U.S.”
“By integrating Worldpay into our SDK, we’ve removed the burden from the ISV of becoming a payments expert, especially in an age of EMV, and provided them with a value-added service they can use to get their merchants to market faster.” continued Dumbrell.
PowaPOS is the first point of sale platform purpose built for tablet-based payments. It is the only fully integrated design to incorporate all common retail peripherals and support all POS software across all operating systems: iOS, Android and Windows. The PowaPOS platform features a built-in thermal printer, 2D scanner, orientation sensor, and the optional PowaPOS cash drawer, all with just a single power cord. With its advanced, single API SDK, PowaPOS easily integrates with all POS software applications, as well as third-party payment devices and PowaTag,Powa’s innovative mobile commerce enablement app.
With Worldpay, ISVs using the PowaPOS SDK gain integrated access to one of the largest payments processors in the world. The company processed more than 10.7 billion transactions globally in 2014. Worldpay enables businesses to accept payments any way their customers want to pay and, with its recent acquisition of SecureNet, is creating new payments experiences for software and applications that business owners use to run their businesses smarter across all channels.
“Worldpay recognizes the power of software developers to meet merchant needs, and PowaPOS is providing those ISVs with next generation hardware that complements these advanced POS applications,” said Worldpay Chief Strategy Officer Steve Karp. “As the demand for both bundled services and tablet-based payments continues to grow, this relationship with PowaPOS fits perfectly into our ‘develop once’ approach, which provides a direct connection to the payment acquirer while easing the adoption of new POS solutions in an increasingly competitive POS market.”
