Poynt has inked a strategic partnership with Wirecard to expand the availability of Poynt Terminals (the Poynt Smart Terminal and the Poynt 5) in Europe and Southeast Asia.
The partnership will enable Wirecard to offer businesses of all sizes the most innovative payment solution on the market today. Poynt Terminals’ sleek design makes them easily identifiable – their features make them unique in the market.
The terminals’ most coveted features include payment acceptance of chip and PIN, EMV, and NFC; entirely mobile format thanks to built in 3G and Wi-fi; access to useful 3rd party software via the Poynt App store; and easy business scaling thanks to the ability to easily add new terminals as a business grows.
Poynt launched in 2013 by Osama Bedier, former head of Google Wallet. We are backed by Matrix Partners, Oak HC/FT Partners, Stanford-StartX Fund, Webb Investment Network, Nyca Partners, Google Ventures, and other individual investors.
Bedier says he believes all merchants should have access to innovative technology without compromising on security or user experience. It was a natural next step for us to bring our Smart Terminal to merchants in Europe and Asia. Payment innovation is increasingly important in these markets, and we are thrilled to partner with Wirecard to enable merchant access to our terminals.
