AnywhereCommerce, a global mobile payments technology provider, announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Prosa, a merchant services provider serving Mexico and other markets throughout the region, to provide a feature-rich end-to-end mobile payment solution, including, acceptance devices, software applications, and gateway services to support Prosa’s deployment of comprehensive mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) solutions.
As a result of the agreement, Prosa will deploy AnywhereCommerce’s “aCommerce Gateway” for accepting credit, debit, cash, and gift card payments, as well as the company’s payment accepting software application, and its popular line of mPOS devices, including the highly regarded Walker™ model. Walker is EMVCo-certified and gives merchants the power to accept EMV as well as magnetic-stripe based card payments.
“We searched for a mobile payments solution provider who could not only deliver products of high quality and reliability,” said Jose Molina, chief executive officer of Prosa, “but one who also understood the Latin American landscape and the particular challenges facing merchants in these diverse markets. We found both in AnywhereCommerce and are pleased to have partnered with them.”
“We are quite excited about this agreement with Prosa to distribute our full range of mPOS solutions in Mexico,” said Bill Nichols, executive vice president, International Markets for AnywhereCommerce. “To be aligned with such a prestigious and market-influential partner as Prosa is a testament to the capability and versatility of our mobile payments technologies. Just as importantly, the deal with Prosa substantially expands our presence in Mexico, and underscores AnywhereCommerce’s commitment to serve the burgeoning Latin American marketplace. We look forward to working with Prosa and delivering end-to-end mobile commerce solutions that will serve the needs of merchants, consumers, and providers.”
AnywhereCommerce payment acceptance devices utilize a variety of sophisticated connectivity and secure encryption technologies — from USB and Bluetooth to patented audio jack connectivity — that transform smartphones and tablets into fully featured, highly secure mobile card payments acceptance terminals. The products support a variety of card-present magnetic stripe debit and credit card acceptance as well as gift card and loyalty program payments, and operate on most mobile device operating systems, including Android, iOS and Windows mobile platforms.
