AprivaPay Surpasses 100 Reseller Milestone

Mobile Payment Application Continues to Gain Traction Among Merchants and Resellers
Scottsdale, AZ December 15, 2010—Apriva, the leading provider of end-to-end wireless transactions and secure information solutions, announced that it has signed more than 100 distributors to provide its AprivaPay Point-of-Sale (POS) application. Available as downloadable software on smartphones, or through browser-based cell phones, AprivaPay provides secure, reliable and cost-effective solutions for merchants who are looking to accept credit and debit card-based payments in the field.

“We are very pleased with the reception AprivaPay has been given from both resellers and merchants,” said Bill Clark, executive vice president and general manager for North America. “While exceeding 100 resellers in just a few months is quite remarkable, I am just as impressed with the breadth of our distribution partners ranging from global giants like AT&T, Apple’s iTunes, and Google’s Android Marketplace to scores of acquirers across the nation.”

According to Clark, AprivaPay users have climbed dramatically over the last two months. Sales in October more than tripled those in September..

“We’re also seeing a fairly even distribution across the variety of smartphone platforms in the market,” said Bill Ramsey, Apriva’s vice president for business development. “Our iPhone and Windows Mobile downloads have grown steadily, and we also experienced a dramatic surge with the recent release of the Android application.”

AprivaPay solutions for smartphones provides a more professional and convenient experience for both the merchant and consumer. The application enables merchants to conduct “card present” transactions, which translates into lower interchange rates. AprivaPay is currently available on Android, Apple’s iPhone and iTouch, as well as Windows Mobile devices.  AprivaPay is also available as a web-browser based tool that can be utilized through any feature phone or Smartphone with web-browser capabilities. 

AprivaPay and related peripherals are available through Apriva’s extensive network of resellers. To learn more visit www.aprivapay.com or call 877-277-0728.
