In addition to credit card processing, the Paychex solution allows business owners to electronically deposit checks, offer gift cards, and earn revenue through dynamic currency conversion. “With our aligned focus on customers and our fast, secure payment processing solutions, Elavon has established itself as a top choice. We look forward to working with Paychex to bring resources, capabilities, and technology as we continue to provide access to an integrated payment gateway,” said Simon Haslam, President and CEO at Elavon. Taking payments anywhere and anytime is easy and convenient with the online payment terminal and mobile payment processing app that turns most iPhone ®, iPad ®, or Android TM devices into a payment terminal with features robust enough to serve as the primary terminal. Business owners may also choose from a variety of point-of-sale solutions, including the cloud-based POS systems for the Apple iPad and other PC platforms. With this fully integrated system, business owners can accept multiple payment types, apply discounts, track inventory, and access detailed reports and analytics from their computer or iPad to better manage their business. Paychex also offers a selection of EMV-enabled credit card terminals for accepting the new chip-based credit cards already in use across the world, and making their way to the U.S.
