NEW YORK, NY, April 16, 2019 – CardFlight, the leading SaaS payment technology company, today unveiled SwipeSimple Terminal, the expansion of their signature software to the smart terminal payment space. Designed to change and enhance the way small businesses process payments and handle other key related services, SwipeSimple Terminal will bring simple, reliable payment acceptance to even more small businesses than before. By integrating CardFlight’s industry-leading software, SwipeSimple Terminal offers the payment acceptance and software management tools that over 50,000 small businesses already rely on, via an enhanced, intuitive and easy-to-use format that resellers are familiar with and can trust.

“Today’s launch expands our tested, state-of-the-art payments software to a new medium, making it easier than ever for small business owners across America to build and grow their companies,” said Derek Webster, CardFlight Founder and CEO. “Our mission at CardFlight is simple—we’re committed to making payment acceptance fast, dependable, and effortless for business owners in today’s fast-evolving digital world. Bringing our SwipeSimple product to smart terminals as the next step in that mission just made sense.”

With SwipeSimple Terminal, merchants can rely on the basic functions of traditional payment terminals that they and their customers are used to, while gaining access to a sleeker, more modern form factor that consumers prefer, along with SwipeSimple’s intuitive user interface that is loved by merchants today to accept payments on the go, in their store and at their computer.

Merchants can access all the capabilities of a traditional terminal…

  • EMV chip, contactless, and magnetic stripe payment acceptance

  • Rugged, compact form factor with built-in receipt printer

  • Wired and wireless connectivity

…plus the power and simplicity of SwipeSimple.

  • Easy-to-use touchscreen interface

  • On-screen tip prompts

  • Customizable digital receipts via SMS and email

  • Searchable transaction history on the device

  • Item catalog and inventory management

  • Powerful business insight tools at SwipeSimple Merchant Web Dashboard

CardFlight is proud to partner with Merchant Acquirers and Independent Sales Organizations around the country to help empower small business owners. Small businesses nationwide now have the ability to securely accept payments anywhere through CardFlight’s technology, and by using SwipeSimple Terminal, resellers can now serve a wider universe of customers and potential merchants, including those in the retail goods/services, specialty food/beverage, medical/dental/professional services and nonprofits/educational space.

“We’re grateful that our reseller partners have brought SwipeSimple to more than 50,000 small businesses across the United States,” said Marla Knutson, Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at CardFlight. “Introducing SwipeSimple to the smart terminal market enables us and our reseller partners to support even more merchants across new business categories and to do so at a deeper level, making it easier than ever before for our partners to support their customers with our technology.”

SwipeSimple Terminal will initially be available on the PAX A920 and PAX A80, enabling CardFlight to work with Merchant Acquirers and Independent Sales Organizations to meet diverse merchant needs.

  • PAX A920, a sleek, sophisticated model featuring a 5” high-resolution display, long-lasting battery, and SwipeSimple’s revolutionary payment acceptance capabilities

  • PAX A80, an entry-level solution offering all the same SwipeSimple capabilities in a more traditional terminal device, for about the same cost as basic terminals currently on the market

The SwipeSimple Terminal is scheduled for release later this quarter. Merchant Acquirers and Independent Sales Organizations interested in distributing it can apply to join a private beta now to be among the first to resell SwipeSimple Terminal. It will also be on display at this year’s ETA TRANSACT conference, taking place in Las Vegas from April 30 – May 2.
