Digital River has announced the launch of Beanstream Mobile, a suite of mobile payment solutions for iOS and Android devices that enables merchants to turn mobile devices into "a portable card swipe, cash register and comprehensive solution." Beanstream Mobile works with an encrypted card reader and a free downloadable app.
“Existing mobile payment solutions have fallen short for merchants with multi-currency operations, in-store and online sales, and inventories,” said Souheil Badran, senior vice president and general manager, global payments and commerce at Digital River.Unlike most mobile payment solutions, Beanstream Mobile’s interface and encrypted card reader are specifically designed to be white-labeled by brands and financial institutions.
“Now, merchants will be able to unify their payment channels with one device and accept credit card mobile payments in 140 currencies through an integration with Digital River World Payments’ international bank connections.”
The free Beanstream Mobile apps are now available in the Apple iTunes and Google Play stores. Beanstream API is also available for developers who wish to integrate mobile payment capabilities into their application.
