Visa Signs Agreement With ROAM To Increase Availability Of Mobile Acceptance Solutions Worldwide

Visa’s agreement with ROAM aims to displace cash globally

The agreement with ROAM is Visa’s first under the Visa Ready Partner Program, which is designed to enable growth of Visa acceptance and usage in key geographies and merchant segments worldwide. According to the agreement, ROAM and Visa will focus on several areas to displace the use of cash globally using mobile point-of-sale acceptance technology:
  • Preferred Brand Collaboration: The companies have agreed to work together on a multinational basis to promote Visa’s and ROAM’s respective mobile acceptance solutions
  • Visa Ready: ROAM’s mobile point-of-sale hardware devices, which it white labels globally for other companies to market under their own brands, may bear the Visa Ready symbol that can be used to promote and market the devices as approved for use with Visa payments.
  • Direct connection to Visa: In select countries, Visa will provide ROAM with APIs (Application Program Interfaces) and SDKs (Software Development Kits) in order to connect to Visa via a number of payment gateways, including CyberSource and Authorize.Net merchant payment management platforms acquired by Visa in 2010. This will enable merchants of all sizes to accept and process Visa’s transactions.
  • White Label: ROAM has agreed to develop and provide Visa acquirers and merchants globally with white label mobile acceptance devices that are fully approved for use with Visa EMV-chip, contactless and magnetic stripe card payments, and compatible with CyberSource and Authorize.Net mobile point-of-sale solutions.

During Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, February 25-28, the two companies will offer mobile point-of-sale acceptance demonstrations using a ROAM mobile acceptance device. For more information, visit Visa’s stand at Mobile World Congress, Hall 6, Stand 6E40.
