New York, NY (PRWEB) October 27, 2015
Europe’s most used mobile payment solution, SEQR (se·cure), announces today the launch of NFC (near field communications) payments in the first quarter of 2016.
With the number of card terminals supporting NFC technology forecasted to be 24 million by the end of 2015, the mobile payment solutions provider will now allow merchants the ability to accept payments from mobile devices. Today, over 6,200 merchants use SEQR. “We are a leader in mobile payment solutions. Our NFC technology will enable merchants to quickly get up and running with our suite of mobile payment solutions," states Peter Fredell, CEO, SEQR.
"Handling more than 3.7 billion transactions annually through 575,000 active sales outlets all over Europe, the NFC feature will add tremendous value to both merchants and customers as any card terminal that can accept Apple Pay will also be able to accept SEQR," continues Fredell.
The SEQR NFC solution eliminates this bottlenecks to merchants and immediately provide customers with the opportunity to shop in millions of stores and points of sale. Even with the quick integration, the company notes that merchants will be able to significantly reduce their transaction fees, while also utilizing SEQR features that will increase sales and loyalty among their customers.
The technology is scheduled to be launched and in production in the first quarter of 2016 and is being demonstrated for the first time on October 25, 2015 at Money20/20 in Las Vegas, the world’s largest trade show for payment and financial services.
