Ingenico Mobile Solutions, a leading player in mobile payments acceptance, has launched a one-of-a-kind PCI PTS 4.0 and SRED-certified mobile card reader, equipped to accept both EMV and mag stripe card payments, as well as NFC/contactless payments such as Apple Pay. Designed with flexibility in mind, the Ingenico RP450c can be attached to a mobile device via the audio jack, used as a separate Bluetooth companion, or placed in a docking station mode.
The new and innovative backpack-like design creates a seamless and reliable customer checkout experience by preventing rotation, incorporating a full-width smartcard slot, and by utilizing a long magnetic stripe guide to ensure a high success rate. This addition to the Ingenico Mobile Solutions product line makes the company the first mPOS solution provider to cover the full spectrum of merchant payment needs including mag stripe, EMV, and NFC/contactless.
Some unique features of the RP450c include:
- 3-track magnetic stripe reader (MSR), secure card reader (SCR), and NFC reader in one unit.
- PCI PTS 4.0 POI and SRED certified, EMV Level 1 & 2 Contact, EMV Level 1 Contactless.
- Three flexible connection options – audio jack, Bluetooth (option), and USB.
- Integrated extended life rechargeable battery.
- Certified for Visa payWave and MasterCard contactless.
- White-labeling options enabling custom branding of device by merchants or ISOs/acquirers.
- TR-39 certified facility for in-factory key injection.
