Fiserv Completes First-of-its-Kind Pin on Mobile Transaction With Visa

BusinessWire

“In a move that is expected to boost the worldwide use of smartphones and tablets as point-of-sale terminals, First Data, now part of Fiserv (NASDAQ: FISV), is enabling merchants to use their own devices to accept payments of any amount without any additional hardware. This is ground-breaking for small businesses and service providers that operate remotely due to its first-of-its-kind PIN on mobile capability, which facilitates secure PIN entry on a consumer-grade mobile device. This simplifies payment acceptance by allowing merchants to accept PIN-based contactless transactions without the need for a separate card reader or PIN-entry device, opening new market opportunities for merchants and allowing even micro-businesses to accept non-cash payments.”

‘Dine and Dash’ Redefined With New Clover Scan to Pay Feature

“Restaurants can offer guests a more efficient, flexible, and secure payment experience with Scan to Pay, a first of its kind feature available with the Clover® platform from Fiserv, Inc.  With Scan to Pay, guests use their iPhone camera to scan a Clover-generated QR code at the bottom of their receipt to pay their restaurant bill with Apple Pay. This saves time for both the guest and the server by eliminating the need for the guest to give their credit card to the server and for the server to take the card to the point of sale, process the transaction, and return for a signature. Not only is Apple Pay quick and convenient for both the guest and restaurant, it is also secure as a customer must authorize every transaction with Face ID or Touch ID on their iPhone.”
