Paysafe, Handpoint partner to expand omnichannel payment offerings

Paysafe, a leading specialized payments platform, has partnered with Handpoint’s Cloud SDK to offer omnichannel payments to its clients.

The US-based Paysafe’s integration with Handpoint’s new Cloud SDK allows ISVs to diversify their payment offerings through the addition of in-person payments with EMV cards, as well as leading wallets like Apple Pay and Google Pay. The SDK facilitates card-present payments for ISVs by serving as a bridge between web apps and payment terminals, with seamless payment processing by Paysafe. ISVs can now offer their merchants a fully integrated omnichannel experience for all their payment needs.

The launch comes amidst an ISV market strongly focused on broadening payment options. According to a Paysafe’s quarterly research, this year the US, Canadian, and UK ISVs plan to double the number of payment methods offered.

O B Rawls, CEO of Global Payment Processing at Paysafe, said, “An omnichannel payment offering is vital for success in the ISV space – providing consumers with a seamless experience whether they’re paying in person, online or via mobile. We’re delighted to put this into practice in partnership with Handpoint, enabling ISVs’ merchant partners to provide consumers with a strong card-present payment solution.”

The SDK is complemented by next-generation PAX Android terminals (A920 and A80 models), hand-held mobile devices with a strong user experience that support EMV and contactless payments (via Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G or ethernet). Cardholders’ data is protected by point-to-point encryption (P2PE).

Merchants will benefit from an intuitive activation with no need to manage a complex network setup. The SDK also supports tokenization and tip adjustment, among other functionality.

Jody Muehlegger, COO and Head of North America at Handpoint, further added that “ISVs must support the specific and evolving needs of their merchant vertical. Our Cloud SDK combined with Paysafe’s omni-commerce technology enables cutting-edge software providers to integrate unified payments across every touchpoint, without compromising security, control, or customer experience.”
