Heartland Payment Systems and LevelUp announced they are partnering nationwide on the first national roll out of a mobile payment solution.
“The biggest challenge facing mobile payment companies right now is scale,” said Chris Mahl, LevelUp’s chief revenue and strategy officer. “LevelUp has been able to reach 1 million users and 5,000 merchants relatively quickly, but we need even wider consumer and merchant adoption before LevelUp hits the mainstream. Our partnership with Heartland Payment Systems will allow us to fire up our growth rate as we begin a phased roll-out with Heartland’s impactful sales force selling LevelUp and our white-label solutions to businesses and consumers across the country.”
Heartland will distribute LevelUp's mobile payment and loyalty platform to merchants; LevelUp will use Heartland for processing.
