DataCash, a MasterCard subsidiary, will add Swiff's mobile point of sale technology to DataCash's range of processing and risk management services.

Swiff offers a plug-in card reader, which is compatible with most smartphones. Swiff's reader will connect to the DataCash payment gateway to facilitate card-based authentication. It allows merchants to accept payments from a number of global card brands, including MasterCard, Visa and American Express.

"This new technology both strengthens our White Label Payment Gateway service for our global partners and furthers the adoption of digital payments in the important [small and medium enterprises] segment," said Ajay Bhalla, president at DataCash, in an Oct. 8 press release.

DataCash also recently integrated with TV App Agency's TV App engine to enable electronics makers and app developers to accept payments through specially equipped televisions.
