Equinox and PayJunction Partner to Provide EMV-Certified, Semi-Integrated Smart Terminal
Now Businesses can Quickly Integrate the L5200 Terminal for InPerson Payments
SCOTTSDALE, May 17, 2016 – Equinox Payments (“Equinox”), the leading provider of payment terminals, applications and support services, and PayJunction, the premier provider of payment gateway and merchant services, today announced the launch of PayJunction’s Smart Terminal, a semiintegrated solution that connects PayJunction’s cloud-based REST API with the Equinox L5200 terminal to seamlessly process inperson payments. Together, Equinox and PayJunction have eliminated the lengthy and painstaking process of EMV Level 3 certification.
Free to qualified customers, the Smart Terminal not only allows businesses to process EMV chip cards, traditional magstripe cards and contactless payments like Apple Pay; it also supports advanced features including signature capture and digital receipts. For the first time, third-party software developers can integrate all types of payment in just a few hours, rather than months, using PayJunction’s API. In addition, developers can leverage PayJunction’s existing PCI and EMV certification to limit or possibly negate annual audits altogether.
“We have made payments simple for developers again. Our Smart Terminal will limit PCI scope and provide instant EMV certification for developers so they can focus on what they are best at: building amazing software. Let us handle the rest,” said Randy Modos, President, PayJunction. “The integration specialists at Equinox worked closely with us to develop a unique semiintegrated solution that reduces the complexities associated with PCI & EMV compliance.”
Sharing his thoughts on the collaboration, Rob Hayhow, Vice President, Equinox said, “We enjoy working with innovative partners like PayJunction, especially when our solutions help redefine the payment experience and generate significant value for their customers.” Hayhow continued, “The development of the PayJunction Smart Terminal solution underscores the ingenuity of our software development team.”
Adoption has been swift, with PayJunction installing more than 3,000 Smart Terminals to date and demand surging daily. For businesses interested in this new solution, PayJunction offers API documentation, free Smart Terminals and developer support at http://developer.payjunction.com.
