Global Payments Launches EMV & Contactless Mobile Payments Solution in Canada

Global Payments Inc., a leading worldwide provider of payment technology services, announced the launch of the new Ingenico Companion Mobile Payments (iCMP) MPOS – a turnkey mobile point-of-sale solution offering full debit and credit EMV and contactless payment acceptance to Canadian merchants.

The iCMP MPOS solution includes a secure Bluetooth-enabled reader that pairs with a merchant’s Apple, iOS or Android device for simple and secure on-the-go payment acceptance. Through the robust iCMP MPOS app, merchants can manage their businesses on the go, with an in-app inventory catalogue, digital receipts and a merchant portal that provides real-time insights into business operations with detailed reporting.

As we continue to expand our leading selection of innovative point-of-sale solutions, we’re pleased to offer our merchants a growing number of mobile payment offerings designed to meet evolving business needs for portable payment convenience, said René Bélanger, President, Global Payments Canada, said in an official press release. Unlike other mobile solutions, the iCMP MPOS supports EMV and NFC contactless credit and debit card acceptance, including Apple Pay, providing our merchants with an off-the-shelf solution that is flexible, simple and secure and will position our customers for the future.

As a PCI PTS 3.0 and EMV Level 1 and 2 certified solution, the iCMP MPOS complies with the latest payment and security standards for secure payment processing capabilities, designed to encrypt card data at the time of the transaction. The iCMP MPOS is an affordable solution for small businesses, offering a flat-rate pricing structure, free EMV- and contactless-enabled reader and no set-up fees. Global Payments has made it easy for merchants to get started with the iCMP MPOS solution, with a simple, online application offering an automated approval response.

Recently, Discover Financial Services and Global Payments Inc., one of the largest worldwide providers of payment solutions, announced a streamlined acceptance solution for Discover cards for merchants in Canada. The new program will simplify acceptance of Discover, Diners Club International, PULSE and affiliated network cards for Global Payments’ merchants in Canada, offering a comprehensive solution that provides value by offering a single statement.
