CardFlight gets down with BoomTown for payments
The partnership will enable Boomtown’s US-based merchant acquirer and independent sales organisation clients to offer CardFlight’s SwipeSimple payment acceptance solution to merchants.
An EMV capable POS system, SwipeSimple is available as both a mobile or countertop register version and comes with back office reporting software to help businesses manage their inventory and operations. The SwipeSimple Register version was launched earlier this spring and offers paper receipt printing and discounting options.
Boomtown CEO Alfred “Chip” Kahn IV says that CardFlight offers features that includes using Bluetooth Low Energy to support EMV and contactless payments, offering an app that allows merchants to use their own device for mobile POS, and using a virtual terminal for card not present transactions.
Founded in 2013, CardFlight serves ten of the top 30 merchant acquirers in the US. In May, CardFlight announced another distribution partnership with payment technology company Paya. CardFlight has raised a total of $6.6 million.
