BREAKING POS News | Inspired by the increasing demand for mobile, gift, and rewards payment solutions… Mercury Payment Systems, LLC, an award-winning provider of payment technology and services for small to mid-sized businesses, today announced the launch of Mercury StoreCard™, a gift, rewards, mobile payments and promotions card all in one.
For merchants, Mercury StoreCard addresses a technology gap in the marketplace. Smaller merchants want the marketing power of a big box store, but typically lack the budget and technical expertise to carry out a complicated customer loyalty program. Integration with their existing point-of-sale (POS) system and checkout process remains challenging and creates barriers to entry for most small businesses.
MPS hopes to remove barriers by working seamlessly with the merchant’s existing POS system, and payments made with a Mercury StoreCard are processed like any other gift card transaction all while removing much of the effort and complexity that so often accompanies a merchant’s adoption of a new payment technology.
Mercury StoreCard will be available to select customers in February 2014, with a broader rollout planned for mid-year.
