SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- Wireless transaction provider Apriva has certified Ingenico's iWL250 handheld terminal, which operates on 3G wireless networks and multiple payment processing platforms. It is available to Apriva's network of more than 850 merchant acquirers in the United States.
The device meets the latest PCI PTS version 3.0 security standards and supports traditional magnetic stripe technology, along with emerging EMV and NFC payment technologies. It relies on the Telium2 architecture for fast and secure transactions. In addition, all payment processing technologies are embedded into the terminal, eliminating the need for hardware upgrades.
"Today small and midsize merchants are faced with more complexity and competitive pressures to be able to engage with the customer and accept different forms of payment not only at the check-out, but anywhere they are," said Rod Hometh, vice-president for market development for Ingenico North America. "The iWL250 Telium series device is perfectly suited to address these competitive market conditions and more."
