Mobile in Canada,” said VeriFone Executive Vice President Jeff Dumbrell.

solution to adapt their iPhones for card payment acceptance anywhere,
The VeriFone system currently incorporates a secure mag-stripe card
encryption reader for iPhone and a PA-DSS validated App; an EMV version
of the card encryption reader is anticipated soon. An English language
version of the PAYware Mobile app for Canada is available for immediate
download, with a French version planned for later this year.
The PAYware Mobile card encryption sleeve incorporates VeriFone’s
end-to-end encryption technology and ensures secure payment processing.
It incorporates a stylus for signature capture and a mini-USB port for
charging the iPhone while the ergonomic reader is attached.
Users also gain access to the PAYware Connect gateway, a fully
customizable and reliable gateway service that’s ideal for small
businesses. Details of all iPhone payment transactions are available in
real-time within the Merchant Portal on the payment gateway, which also
enables businesses to consolidate payment reporting from multiple
