Dynamics logo 140x60pxDynamics Inc. has announced the ePlate™ dual-button payment device that gives consumers the ability to change the experience they earn with each purchase by pressing different buttons on the device.

"Dynamics' vision is to change the world forever without changing the way the world works," said Jeff Mullen, CEO of Dynamics. "Today, Dynamics once again delivers on that promise. The ePlate™ device gives the user the ability to personalize their payment experience in a way never before envisioned while earning exclusive content across the world's first developer ecosystem for payments. Now, the experience of every credit card in the world can be captured in a single payment device that is issued by a single issuer. And, experience providers can use consumer-approved payment data and a new revenue stream of 25bps per transaction to develop new functionality and experiences that cannot be offered on anywhere else."

The company also unveiled a large and growing 'experience' application ecosystem with a developer toolkit that allows developers, such as charities, brands, retailers, and gaming companies, to create unique, branded experiences for ePlate™ consumers.

Dynamics Announces 'Chip and Choice' Card Technology

Dynamics logo 140pxDynamics Inc. has announced 'Chip And Choice' technology that brings the the firm's multi-purpose, dynamic card capabilities to the world of EMV.

Dynamics’ Chip & Choice™ technology includes two chips – a secure, embedded chip and an exposed chip. A user can select different payment options by pressing different buttons on the card. Dynamics’ secure, embedded chip then writes a different, temporary chip profile into the exposed chip based on the user’s selection. In doing so, a user can select and use different payment applications even with readers that do not support such applications. This level of flexibility, unique to Dynamics payments cards, negates the needs for costly infrastructure updates in order to deliver powerful new functionality to merchants, networks, card issuers and consumers.
