Today, Apriva and iPayment announced their iPayment MobilePay app will now provide small and mid-sized businesses (SMB) EMV functionality.

iPayment MobilePay, the white-labeled version of Apriva’s AprivaPay Plus, allows Apple, Android and Amazon Fire users to accept payments with their mobile device. The application can be used on the go or at a storefront.

iPayment MobilePay offers the following features:

  • EMV chip card acceptance
  • Magstripe card acceptance
  • Cloud-based inventory
  • Multi-user support
  • English, French and Spanish language support
  • Two-factor authentication
  • Device tracking
  • An online web portal offering reports for SMB owners
  • Compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations

“Mobile acceptance is critical for our customers and EMV compliance is increasingly important as their customers, the consumers, expect to be able to use their chip cards and transact in a secure environment,” said Greg Cohen, President of iPayment, Inc. “Our partnership with Apriva allows us to provide not just EMV capabilities, but a wide variety of payment and commerce solutions to our channel partners, SMB customers and their end-customers, all from one easy mobile application.”

Apriva, a wireless transactions security company, and iPayment, a payment solutions and processing company, have enjoyed a long partnership that allows them to bring payment solutions to merchants. Apriva has over 35 processor options for merchants and gives SMB owners access to a variety of payment methods.

“Many small to medium sized businesses using mobile devices have not yet upgraded their payment solutions for EMV acceptance because of the general lack of availability in the marketplace. AprivaPay Plus is unique in that it has been EMV certified on multiple payment processors,” said Stacey Finley Tappin, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Communications at Apriva. “iPayment MobilePay now offers a low cost EMV solution to businesses that can be deployed on a wide variety of smartphones and tablets, enabling compliance for businesses of all sizes.”
