Stripe Partners to Enable EMV Card-Present Acceptance
March 10, 2016
Stripe, a Silicon Valley online payment provider that has achieved impressive growth by offering small businesses a simple way to accept online payments, has partnered with CardFlight to enable EMV-compliant card-present payments for its mobile app customers. Stripe’s partnership with New York City-based CardFlight will allow app developers to accept in-person payments with a chip card in a mobile app.
"Our focus has always been on providing our users with the tools and the infrastructure to make it easier to start and manage an Internet business" said Cristina Cordova, head of business development at Stripe. "Through our integration with CardFlight, we can now offer further flexibility to our users who wish to accept credit and debit cards both online and in person."
Under the agreement, CardFlight will provide Stripe customers processing payments from mobile apps with an EMV-compliant card reader to complete chip-card transactions.
