Chip and PIN card reader available with MYOB PayDirect

Mint Wireless has named MYOB as the first of its partners to offer the hardware vendor’s new Europay Mastercard and Visa (EMV) compliant Chip and PIN card reader.

The release is timed to coincide with the upcoming Chip and Pin mandate coming into effect from August 2014 in Australia and from October 2014 in New Zealand.

The mobile payments and transactions processing company said it is also seeing increased interest and demand for its mobile payments platform from enterprise.

Mint has also updated its product roadmap to include loyalty programs, enhanced product customisation for vertical industry customers, geo-location functionality, analytics, mobile wallets, support for Card Not Present transactions, the ability to integrate additional hardware and the expansion of Mint Wireless’ wholesale merchant acquiring partner agreements with banks.

Mint Wireless chief executive, Robin Khuda, said the firm was pleased with its achievements and the momentum generated over the last three months.
