Digital River Launches Mobile Payments Acceptance Solutions

Digital river world payments logo 140pxDigital 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.

“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.”

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.

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.

Shopify Enters Mobile POS Market with Shopify POS

Shopify 140pxShopify has announced Shopify POS, an iPad-based point of sale system it says is designed to let anybody easily sell in-store at physical POS in addition to online.

Shopify POS marks a new frontier for Shopify as they branch out from helping people create ecommerce stores, to helping people run and grow businesses across all levels of commerce.

“Shopify is well-known as the world’s best platform used to create and manage an online store,” said Adam McNamara, Shopify Vice President of Product.

“But the future of retail isn’t online versus in-store; it’s a seamless combination of both. Shopify has transitioned from simply powering online sales to powering all commerce: online, offline, mobile, and everything in between.”

Before Shopify POS, merchants who wanted to run an online store as well as a brick-and-mortar retail store had to keep track of two sets of inventories, two product catalogs, and two payment systems.

TSYS to Support PayPal's Expansion to Physical POS

Tsys logo 140pxTSYS has announced it has entered into an agreement with Discover to process PayPal payment transactions within the contiguous United States.

“We are extremely pleased to support PayPal’s expansion into more physical merchant locations. We believe PayPal provides merchants and consumers more choices and helps reach new consumers at the point of sale, relying on our robust payment transaction processing platforms, as well as other value-added products and services,” said Mark Pyke, president of TSYS’ Merchant Services segment.

“We anticipate the addition of PayPal as an added benefit to both merchants and consumers.”

According to TSYS, "PayPal offers consumers several advantages, one of which is that PayPal can serve as a single source to access customers’ credit or debit cards, bank accounts, PayPal balances, or Bill Me Later payment methods all stored in their PayPal accounts at a point-of-sale terminal."
