Global Payments is now a partner of choice for three major UK mobile payments providers, which include previously announced agreements with O2 and hibu. All three solutions offer businesses an affordable and flexible way to accept card payments using a smartphone or tablet. The addition of Intuit to the marketplace is a significant step toward the more widespread adoption of mobile payments among small businesses in the UK.

Intuit Pay is fully chip and PIN compliant and allows small businesses and individuals to accept card payments with their mobile phone, using a dedicated reader and downloadable app. Generally available in the UK since March 2013, Intuit Pay was recently featured as iTunes Editor's Choice App of the Week and reached number six in the iTunes Business App Store. Intuit was also awarded Best SMB Innovation at the 2013 PYMNTS.com Innovator Awards.

"Our goal is to help small merchants run their businesses more cost effectively and efficiently using the latest payments technology, regardless of their size or budget," said Chris Davies, Managing Director Global Payments. "We believe the Intuit launch is the latest step in a series of progressive developments for the mobile payments market, and has the potential to open up an entirely new customer base for small businesses."
