LUXEMBOURG, September 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
With thousands of payment terminals now enabled to use Yapital as a payment method, the first European cross-channel payment solution continues to pave the way for becoming standard at POS
As of now, Yapital, the first European cross-channel payment solution, is available on payment terminal solutions from VeriFone. This cooperation with VeriFone - the global leader in secure electronic payment solutions-marks yet another milestone on Yapital´s way to become available everywhere as a standard for mobile payments in Germany and Europe.
With the integration of Yapital in the VeriFone H5000 terminal software (other terminals will follow later this year), retailers and merchants can offer their customers the ability to pay with their smartphones by simply scanning a QR code displayed at the terminal. Integration for the retailers is quick, easy and cost-effective. As the software supports terminals connected to cash registers as well as stand-alone terminals, this integration opens up the Yapital way of payment to retailers of any size.
Yapital CEO Nils Winkler comments: "Yapital continues to position itself as the cross-channel payment solution, allowing consumers to pay in-store, online, by invoice or mobile. Teaming up with VeriFone brings us a huge step closer to our goal of becoming a technical standard in-store - at virtually every POS terminal in Germany."
Markus Hövekamp, General Manager of Germany for VeriFone, adds: "At VeriFone, we aim to offer our clients every possibility to be competitive and to meet consumer demand for flexible payment options and fast processing. Integrating the H5000 with Yapital is not just a logical step, but one that makes sense strategically, as it provides a way for merchants and retailers to leverage new payment methods."
Yapital will showcase its mobile payment experience using a VeriFone H5000 terminal at this year´s Digital Marketing Exposition & Conference dmexco in Cologne, Germany, from September 10th - 11th at booth C050/C054 in hall 7.
