Aduno launches the mobile cashless payment solution Anypay
Zurich, 15 August 2016
Aduno SA, the acquiring subsidiary of the Aduno Group, is now offering Aduno Anypay, a mobile payment solution developed in-house for smartphone and tablets. The solution is ideal for smaller businesses who want to accept card payments straightforwardly. Anypay is being launched in cooperation with PostFinance and the shareholder banks of the Aduno Group, and is a mobile payment solution with which the PostFinance Card can now also be used for payment in addition to credit and debit cards. A solution that many retailers have clearly been waiting for: several hundred orders were already received in time of the launch.
The Aduno Group, Swiss specialist for cashless payments, wholly owned by the largest Swiss retail and cantonal banks, takes another step towards cashless payment. In cooperation with PostFinance, the Aduno Group launches the first ep2-certified mobile terminal solution (mPOS), Anypay. The solution, developed by Aduno SA, offers small companies in particular, an easy way to accept contactless payment via Maestro and credit card, as well as the PostFinance Card. Anypay consists of an app (iOS, Android) and a card-reader device and turns a trader’s smartphone or a tablet into a secure mobile payment terminal. The mobile device uses Bluetooth to connect with the Anypay app and thus facilitates secure acceptance of cashless payments with all commonly used cards. Gastronomy businesses can accept the Swiss Lunch-Check card using Anypay.
Payment also possible with the PostFinance Card
Anypay offers a high-performance card-reader device with contactless function, a simple app for mobile Apple and Android devices and a quick and uncomplicated contract set-up via the website www.anypay.ch. The card-reader device is purchased with a one-off payment of CHF 99, so fees only incur for the actual transactions. There is no monthly subscription, nor is there a minimum contract term, and unlike other mPOS solutions on the Swiss market, Anypay accepts payments via the PostFinance Card. Anypay is convincing, not only because of its attractive price but also for its simple handling. In terms of its application, Anypay is thus suitable for small companies with comparatively few card transactions and therefore offers a simple, affordable mobile solution for traders who previously did not yet offer card payments – e.g. small gastronomy businesses, taxis, hair stylists or tradesmen.
What’s more, Aduno Anypay also meets the highest standards of security. The card-reader device and the transaction processing is certified according to the high demands of the international PCI Security Standards Council, the security standards of MasterCard and Visa, the international EMV standard and the Swiss ep2 standard.
Aduno Anypay is a complete offering, which is already rapidly convincing numerous Swiss traders even as it launches. The company has already been able to process and deliver several hundred orders.
