Phos and Discover Global Network partner to enable Tap on Mobile to merchants
By Delisha Fernandes
Phos by Ingenico, a software point-of-sale (SoftPoS) orchestration for businesses, has partnered with Discover Global Network to enable merchants to accept payments from Discover.
The collaboration aims to expand the global adoption of Tap on Mobile technology through Phos’ innovative SoftPoS solution. By leveraging the extensive reach of the company, Phos is committed to delivering smooth, fast, and secure transactions for Tap on Mobile users.
Matt Sloan, VP of International Markets at Discover, said: “Discover Global Network is recognised as the fastest-growing global payments network. With our vast cardholder base and widespread acceptance, this invaluable partnership enables Phos merchants worldwide to deliver more choice and flexibility to their customers and our cardholders at the point of sale.”
Tap on Mobile eliminates the need for expensive hardware and simplifies payment processes by enabling customers to accept card payments securely and contactless on any NFC-enabled device – such as a smartphone or tablet. This means merchants can use the hardware they own rather than invest in costly additional hardware.
Brad Hyett, CEO of Phos by Ingenico, said: “Our partnership with Discover Global Network is the latest step in our mission to revolutionise payment acceptance for merchants worldwide. The extensive reach of the company and commitment to providing innovative payment solutions align perfectly with our vision.”
In evolving payment landscape, merchants, especially MSMEs in emerging markets, face significant cost and integration challenges. Additionally, enterprise merchants often encounter isolated hardware-based acceptance methods that result in inconvenient customer payment experiences and overly complex business processes.
The partnership offers even greater flexibility to merchants, expanding acceptance into new market segments and generating incremental revenue for businesses while improving the overall cardholder experience.
