Global Payments and Dialog Introduce Mobile Point-of-Sale Solution in Sri Lanka
Sep 03, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Global Payments Asia-Pacific Limited, a pan-regional card payment processor in Asia Pacific, and Dialog Axiata PLC, a telecommunications service provider in Sri Lanka, announced the launch of a mobile payment solution that turns a smartphone or tablet into a mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) terminal.
According to a release, this mobile payment solution enables merchants to accept card payments beyond a counter-top sales environment and wherever business takes them within Sri Lanka.
This mobile payment solution helps small and medium enterprises (SMEs) establish a means to accept MasterCard and Visa card payments through a smartphone or tablet. The business can download a free app provided by Global Payments on their mobile device and connect it to a secure card reader to start accepting card payments instantly. It is compatible with both iOS and Android devices and comes with multi-level security measures to protect customer data from being stored on the card reader or the phone
Global Payments noted that this mobile card acceptance service helps merchants on the go - such as businesses with mobile sales force, home delivery services and outdoor sales operations - capture instant purchases. Customers can also enjoy added payment convenience as they can now make card payments anywhere cards were previously not accepted.
"New payment solutions such as this mPOS solution launched by Dialog and Global Payments help small merchants run their businesses more cost-effectively and efficiently using the latest payments technology. We believe this is the latest step in a series of progressive developments for the mobile payments market, and has the potential to open up an entirely new customer base for SME businesses," said Fariq Cader, Senior General Manager, Mobile Money and Payments at Dialog Axiata PLC.
"The launch of this new mPOS solution jointly by Global Payments and Dialog brings a new level of innovation to the way businesses are paid and we are pleased to work with Dialog to introduce this innovative payment technology to Sri Lanka," says Nazeem Mohamed, Director of Sales, Sri Lanka and Maldives, Global Payments Asia-Pacific Limited. "Combining Global Payments' world-class card processing expertise and Dialog's leading mobile telecommunications network, this latest mobile payment service expands merchants' ability to accept card payments at many more locations, helping them capture every sale opportunity beyond the conventional retail store environment."
