New York, 6. May 2014 – EVO Payments international (EVO), a leading card payment acquirer and payment services provider operating in the United States, Canada and Europe, announced today that its EVO Snap*division has launched a comprehensive merchant processing program for iConnect, an omni-channel point-of-sale (POS) provider. The program, which includes competitive pricing and frictionless boarding, enables iConnect to delight customers and drive greater adoption of their iPad, iPhone and Web POS solutions.
“When we first approached EVO Snap* less than 60% of our new merchant customers were approved through our existing merchant acquiring partner,” said Subodh Gupta, President and Founder of iConnect. “We were leaving a lot of business on the table. Through our partnership with EVO, we’re approving more than 95% of new customers and, with same-day approval and boarding, we’re getting those customers up and running faster than ever.”
The process is simple - iConnect customers download a 15-day free trial of iConnect's Web, iPhone or iPad POS software. When they're ready to start accepting cards, merchants complete a quick 2-3 minute application in-app, online or via mobile. As long as key criteria are met, merchants are rapidly approved and activated and can begin accepting payments immediately.
“With software as a primary driver in today’s omni-channel POS marketplace, our software company partners need the ability to expand their business rapidly across multiple points of acceptance,” said Peter Osberg, Senior Vice President of EVO Snap*. “EVO Snap* provides access to a wide array of acquiring and processing solutions. As a result, we’re in a unique position to serve as a one-stop shop for application integration, merchant underwriting and payment processing. This combination allows us to quickly put together unique pricing and boarding programs for innovative solution providers like iConnect.”
iConnect customers can take advantage of the new competitive pricing and activation process, along with other feature enhancements, in the latest release of the iConnect POS software – available now in the App Store on iTunes. New EVO Snap* partners can establish similar programs through EVO Snap*’s Engage program which provides a framework for collaboration between EVO Snap* and integrated software partners.
