Apriva Completes Extensive EMV Certification with Miura Bluetooth Readers to Global Payments

Comprehensive Certification Supports a Dozen Transaction Types

Scottsdale, Ariz. and London, UK, October 20, 2016 — Apriva, the leading provider of secure end-to-end wireless transaction processing solutions, and Miura Systems, the market leading UK-based mPOS platform provider, announced today that they have completed EMV certification to Global Payments for Apriva’s Apriva Pay™ Mobile application with the Miura’s M010 Bluetooth capable mobile card reader. This certification builds on the existing partnership with Miura, announced last year, which integrated AprivaPay Mobile with Miura card readers. This comprehensive certification spans EMV transactions across both contact and contactless payments, including PIN debit transactions, as well as Online and Offline PIN.

Supporting twelve transaction types, this is one of the most extensive EMV certifications to date in the U.S. This all-inclusive certification includes every major card brand: Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, enabling the use of EMV chip card technology for both PIN debit and credit transactions with the Miura M010 card reader. Additionally, the certification covers MSR transactions and compatibility for Apple Pay®, Android Pay™ and Samsung Pay.

“Payments are becoming more uniform and ubiquitous globally, spurring the need for a frictionless solution that functions across all regions for all payment types,” said Stacey Finley Tappin, SVP, Sales and Marketing Communications at Apriva. “By working with Global Payments and Miura, we position Apriva to expand along with the booming worldwide payments market, while delivering safety, security, the latest technology and an extensive selection in payments to our partners.”

AprivaPay Mobile turns any Apple, Android or Amazon Fire device into a mobile point of sale. This streamlined, EMV-certified application is geared towards small and mid-sized businesses, and can be used in any storefront or mobile venue. Complete with Apriva’s Online Merchant Portal, AprivaPay Mobile allows businesses to easily measure and track purchases, manage inventory, and have a command center view of the important information about their business. This versatile, customizable solution can fit the unique needs of any merchant, providing an affordable, secure way to accept payments. Apriva’s connections to more than 30 processors and 1,100 merchant acquirers and Independent Sales Organizations (ISOs) make them an ideal partner for wireless payment services.

Miura’s M010 reader creates a seamless retail experience, transitioning from counter-top to mobile with ease. The platform connects to a tablet cash register and POS system, unclipping to function free of wires. This EMV enabled system is the most versatile on the market, offering expansive payment options for both merchants and their customers.

“We are pleased to partner with Apriva and Global Payments to deliver payments mobility and the enhanced security of EMV and NFC transactions,” said Simon Stokes, Chief Commercial Officer at Miura Systems. “The decision to utilize the Miura M010 in effect future-proofs merchants who choose this solution for years to come.”
