U.S. Bank’s Elavon has release its new software development kit, Commerce SDK which enables businesses to start accepting ApplePay and streamlines a path to EMV. The release enables small and medium size businesses to achieve the same sophisticated payment options as their larger competitors without the hefty price tag.
The Commerce SDK comprehensive kit accelerates a business’ ability to implement a secure, EMV-compliant payment solution by combining Elavon’s global payment processing, EMV certification coding, encryption and tokenization implementation and hardware support for printers, terminals and mobile devices into one package that is easy to integrate.
Supported platforms include iOS, Android, Linux, and Windows. Talech, the market-leading tablet platform, is integrated into Elavon’s Commerce SDK, allowing businesses to accept EMV payments and ApplePay.
Commerce SDK is available to developers at businesses, value added resellers, agents and solutions providers and is supported by Elavon’s world-class customer service.
Elavon’s turnkey mobile POS solution now accepts payments via NFC technology from consumers using Apple Pay, enhancing the consumer payment experience for small and medium size business (SMB) customers. The solution pairs Elavon’s strength in payment processing with talech’s market-leading tablet platform to allow SMBs to accept Apple Pay, along with traditional magnetic swipe credit card payments as well as electronic payments such as EMV, chip & PIN and contactless. Businesses can accept Apple Pay using a new reader powered by Ingenico Mobile Solutions that connects to the mPOS via Bluetooth technology.
The mPOS solution will offer EMV capabilities for customers beginning in Q3 2015, ahead of October’s liability shift deadline.
Elavon is wholly owned by U.S. Bancorp and provides end-to-end payment processing solutions and services to more than 1.3 million customers in the United States, Europe, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Puerto Rico.
