Powa Technologies unveils its partnership with Canada’s leading independent Canadian payment processor, CT-Payment. The PowaPOS T25 is being introduced to the CT-Payment’s ISO and software developer partners as a preferred tablet-based POS platform for meeting the growing demand from their retail clients.
With this relationship, POS software developers can now directly connect to CT-Payment’s advanced payment processing solutions, which provides full authorization and settlement services for credit card payments as members of the VisaNet, MasterCard and American Express networks and Interac Direct Payments as a Direct Connector to the Interac Inter-Member Network.
PowaPOS is the first point of sale platform purpose built for tablet-based payments. Its fully integrated design rids merchants of the need for mismatched peripherals and provides industry-leading ease of set-up. Features include a built in thermal printer, 2D barcode scanner, universal tablet mount, orientation sensor, USB ports, as well as the optional PowaPOS Cash Drawer – all in a sophisticated, compact form factor and powered by a single cord. With its advanced PowaPOS SDK, it is the only tablet-based platform to easily integrate with all POS software applications across all operating systems: iOS, Windows and Android, and is the first to provide merchants with the option to use their choice of payment processor.
With CT-Payment, ISVs and ISOs gain access to Canada’s largest debit- and credit-card processing company to be fully independent of Canadian financial institutions and acquirers. The company is a member of Interac® and an experienced multi-acquirer service provider, offering transaction processing for point-of-sale terminals. Because PowaPOS was designed to work with any operating system and any mobile or tablet-based POS application, reaction from across the payments industry has been overwhelmingly positive. In the short time since the introduction of the PowaPOS SDK, more than 75 ISVs across the globe have successfully integrated their applications. The PowaPOS SDK also supports third party payment devices, including NFC, and enables instant integration with PowaTag, Powa Technologies’ innovative mobile commerce app.
As a member of Interac® and a debit acquirer, CT-Payment delivers integrated debit authorization and settlement services on behalf of its customers and business partners.
