Payworks Extends Stripe Integration to Power EMV Point of Sale Payments in the US, France and Finland

by PaymentsJournal 0

Munich, 21-06-2016 – Payworks, the leading Point of Sale payment solution company, today announced an expansion of its POS payment integration with Stripe, a global leader in online payments. Following the successful launch in the UK and Ireland, where Stripe users can accept card payments via Chip and PIN card readers at the Point of Sale, Payworks will now offer the same possibility to Stripe businesses in the US, France and Finland.

With this expansion, developers using Stripe in the US, France and Finland can now use the Payworks open API payment gateway technology to build and launch integrated Point of Sale solutions. They can do that by integrating the Payworks EMV SDK into their POS applications, regardless of the operating system they use, and enable their merchants to use card readers in their physical stores. This integration will enable merchants to instantly start accepting EMV chip and contactless cards, as well as mobile wallet payments like Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay.

Stripe processes billions of dollars a year for hundreds of thousands of companies. “Since the beginning, our focus has been on providing Stripe users with the tools and the infrastructure they need to start and manage an internet business,” said Stripe’s Head of Business Development, Cristina Cordova. “By extending our integration with Payworks, we can now offer further flexibility to our users in the US, France and Finland who wish to accept credit and debit cards both online and in person.”

Payworks’ payment gateway technology is especially useful for US merchants that are struggling to find a better, more cost-efficient way to adopt EMV card acceptance technology, ever since the United States started migrating to EMV chip card technology last year.

“Both Payworks and Stripe share the vision of making payments easier”, says Christian Deger, Co-Founder & CEO of Payworks. “We were very successful in the UK in terms of combining the online payment technology of Stripe and the Point of Sale payment technology of Payworks. We are very excited to take these learnings and apply them to markets like the US, where merchants are in need of an easy and quick way to accept in-store EMV card payments.”

The Payworks integration with Stripe is now available to developers in the USA, France and Finland. To learn more, please visit www.payworks.com/stripe.
