Mobile payment provider Payleven is adding two new features to lure larger businesses—the ability to manage multiple chip-and-PIN card readers from a single master account and support for both mobile and stationary printer systems.
The new management feature lets merchants monitor the transactions of different mobile devices, centrally control permissions management, and analyze performance from a single location. This feature is available for iOS users, and an Android version will be released shortly.
Payleven is also expanding printer capabilities. Receipts for debit or credit card payments can by printed on stationary or mobile printers, with models from Bixolon, Epson and Star Micronics.
“Payleven is focused on developing a one-stop mobile payments solution for businesses that provides both functionality and ease-of-use. This is the future of mobile payment and helps our customers in efficiently running and growing their businesses,” said Ian Marsh, payleven’s UK managing director, in a release.
Chip-and-PIN, which is one form of payment with an EMV smart card, is not yet widely available in the U.S., particularly for mobile card acceptance. But the EMV standard is a prevalent part of the mobile arms race in Europe.
Payleven initially launched EMV mobile card acceptance in December. Elavon, PayPal, Intuit and other providers also support chip-and-PIN. Square, which operates in the U.S. and Canada, has not announced its plans for handling EMV cards.
