Paysafe expands omni-channel payment offerings with Handpoint

Paysafe has expanded its omni-channel offerings with the launch of the Cloud SDK from Handpoint, a firm that specializes in integrated payments. 

The service allows independent software vendors with cloud-based platforms to provide firms with enhanced in-person payments, which complements existing Handpoint APIs an SDKs used by Paysafe clients with iOS, Android or desktop apps, according to a company press release.

Paysafe said the move comes at a time when independent software vendors are broadening payment options, and the new integration allows ISVs to diversify their offerings through in-person payments using EMV cards, as well as mobile wallets like Apple Pay, Google Pay.

"An omni-channel payments offering is vital for success in the ISV space — providing consumers with a seamless experience whether they're paying in person, online or via mobile," O.B. Rawls, CEO of Global Payment Processing at Paysafe, said in the release.

Jody Muelegger, COO and head of North America at Handpoint, said ISV's need to support the evolving needs of merchants. 

"Our cloud SDK combined with Paysafe's omnicommerce technology enables cutting edge software providers to integrate unified payments across every touchpoint, without compromising security, control or the customer experience," Muelegger said in the release.
