Mobile point-of-sale provider CardFlight has implemented EMV Quick Chip technology across multiple card reader types, including an over-the-air upgrade to tens of thousands of SwipeSimple Eclipse A200 EMV card readers in use by merchants nationwide since 2015.
Quick Chip technology enables EMV transaction authorization in one step, instead of two, and lets customers dip and remove their card while products are still being scanned and added.
In May 2017, CardFlight announced the Swift B200 and Swift B250, a new series of mobile cards readers utilizing BLE connectivity to enable merchants nationwide to accept secure EMV and NFC contactless payments on Android and iOS devices. The Swift series readers were certified with leading payment processors last year and have been enabled for Quick Chip since launch.
“With our dedicated in-house engineering team, CardFlight is able to invest in continually improving products like SwipeSimple,” Peter Wagener, vice president of engineering at CardFlight, said in a press release. “Our Software as a Service delivery model enables us to improve the transaction experience for tens of thousands of merchants, with no additional investment required by merchant acquirers or end merchants.”
