Ingenico Group (Euronext: FR0000125346 - ING), global leader in seamless payment, announced today that it has been awarded the first certification in France for an m-acceptance (or mobile acceptance) solution by Cartes Bancaires CB Group.
M-acceptance consists in combining a payment solution with mainstream mobile equipment such as a smartphone or tablet, using both communication means and ergonomy to provide for embedded management and check-out applications. A transaction viewing portal has been made available to mCommerce retailers by Ingenico Group.
Mobile bank card payments have risen significantly over the last few years. Ingenico Group is a pioneer in the m-acceptance sector with its payment solutions initially connected to the GPRS cellular network and more recently to the 3G network.
Its most recent offer, based on the light-weight, compact iCMP terminal, is available in new economic model to easily fit out the hundreds of thousands of potential card payment acceptors among mobile professionals such as artisans and sole proprietors.
