Payments processor Pivotal Payments is partnering with NetSecure Payments to develop a mobile-payment application for smartphones and tablets, the companies announced last week.

The app, which will be released in Canada during the second quarter and later in the U.S., will enable merchants to swipe, authorize and settle credit card transactions without the use of hardwired terminals, Pivotal Payments said in a press release.

Merchants will be able to accept card payments with a mobile device such as an iPhone, Blackberry device, Android phone or iPad by using an encrypted card swiper that connects to the audio port. Pivotal Payments will offer this service through its own sales channels and through its 1,500 partners in the U.S. and Canada.

NetSecure provides mobile and ecommerce products.
