Payworks, a payments technology services firm, has rolled out an open cloud-based payment infrastructure for processing in-person payments.
Dubbed Pulse, the next generation payment gateway technology aims to simplify in-person card payments by making it quick, easy and cost-efficient for developers to integrate card readers into their point of sale (PoS) solutions, both in stationary and mobile environments.
The payment gateway is compatible with EMV Chip & PIN cards, contactless cards and mobile wallet payments such as Apple Pay, Android Pay and Google Pay.
It is licensed by payment providers to satisfy the needs of merchants of all sizes. Major payment processors such as Barclaycard, Stripe, SIX, Elavon and Concardis are already connected to Pulse.
Payworks co-founder and CEO Christian Deger said: “The official launch of Pulse is a very important milestone for our company. Pulse will create fantastic opportunities for our partners and clients, both technically as well as commercially.”
