CardFlight, a mobile point of sale (PoS) technology provider, has launched new mobile card readers that communicate with iOS and Android devices by Bluetooth technology.
The mobile card readers, Bold B550 and Bold B500, enable merchants to accept payments using the latest mobile payment technologies, including EMV chip cards, contactless NFC payments and mobile wallets like Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay.
Resellers of SwipeSimple, also an mPoS solution offered by CardFlight, can now offer their merchants the Bold B500 and Bold B550 devices, which are EMV certified with First Data and ready to use.
CardFlight said that the Bold B500 is ideal for smaller merchants who want to accept EMV payments or prefer to connect to a card reader via Bluetooth. The Bold B550 provides NFC contactless payments acceptance, besides EMV chip card and magnetic stripe support.
Moreover, the Bold B500 and Bold B550 will be available through CardFlight SDK, a software development kit product, which enables mobile app developers to integrate card present payments into their own applications without performing their own EMV certifications.
CardFlight founder and CEO Derek Webster said: “Our partners look to CardFlight to provide the best mobile payment acceptance technology for today and for the future.
“Today's announcement reinforces our commitment to supporting new payment technologies and providing the best platform for mobile merchants of all types."
