Planet Payment Announces the U.S. Launch of BuyVoice(TM) Mobile Payment Solution

Relateret indhold

Planet Payment (LSE:AIM:PPT and PPTR), a leading international

multi-currency payment and data processor, announces the commercial

launch in the United States of Payment BuyVoice, an innovative mobile

commerce solution. Payment BuyVoice provides merchants with a cost

effective, secure and convenient way to accept credit cards, from any

mobile phone or landline.

Payment BuyVoice is an easy-to-use payment solution

merchants simply dial the dedicated Payment BuyVoice toll-free number

when they need to process a credit card payment. The application

initially authenticates the merchants

credentials through password and PIN validation, and then prompts the

merchant for the relevant card details, which can either be spoken or

key-entered. The system also supports common fraud-control features,

including address and card verification value (CVV) code collection. The

application submits the transaction for authorization, which is

communicated back to the merchant, who subsequently receives payment for

the transaction directly from their merchant bank.

Planet Payments solution enables merchants to

use their existing mobile or landline telephone to enjoy all the

traditional benefits of credit card acceptance, including additional

sales, expedited cash flow and reduced risk by eliminating bounced

checks. Payment BuyVoice is a fully hosted application that provides

merchants with immediate availability using their existing telephone and

mobile carrier, without the purchase of any additional hardware. The

solution does not require the downloading of any software applications

to the merchants phone, eliminating potential

memory limitations and preventing the introduction of viruses, as could

be the case with other mobile payment solutions.

Payment BuyVoice is perfect for merchants on the go, such as taxi and

limousine drivers, direct marketers, and household service and delivery

personnel. In addition, merchants located in areas with limited

availability of access to point-of-sale systems can use Payment BuyVoice

to process credit cards.

Commenting on the launch of Payment BuyVoice, Planet Payment Chief

Executive Officer Philip Beck said:

BuyVoice fills a very significant

market need, both in the U.S. and internationally. As more

consumers move away from cash to credit cards for payment of all types

of purchases, merchants of all types and size require cost effective and

simple means to accept credit card payments. Now, with our

solution, the lack of a credit card terminal will no longer be a barrier

to any merchant seeking credit card acceptance.

Merchants can obtain more information or sign-up for Payment BuyVoice at

Planet Payments web site, www.planetpayment.com.
