Apriva And Apptizer Bring Mobile Store Apps To Multiple Markets

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. & PALO ALTO, CALIF.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Apriva, a leading provider of omnichannel payment solutions and secure mobile communications, announced that they have partnered with Apptizer, an omnichannel app developer, to deliver mobile stores that centralize and manage business generated through various mobile paths.

Apriva’s EMV-enabled Gateway brings state-of-the-art security with end-to-end encryption, tokenization, and EMV capabilities to Apptizer’s solutions, while connecting a variety of payment devices to Apriva’s vast processor connections. As a result of the integration, merchants can quickly enable acceptance of all major debit and credit cards, in addition to NFC and contactless payments, through multiple mobile channels, ensuring customers can more easily and conveniently purchase products and services.

“We wanted a partner that would allow us to securely manage payments, without needing to develop compliant payment processes ourselves,” said Dinesh Saparamadu, co-founder of Apptizer. “Integrating with the Apriva Gateway brings the security, the industry compliance, and the flexibility our merchants need to capture credit card payments anywhere, anytime.”

Apptizer supports businesses to create custom-branded mobile store apps that work on any device, so that all mobile app versions can be created in one effort. It offers you a centralized portal through which merchants can manage their business coming in through multiple mobile channels easily. Apptizer’s mobile store apps also provide simplified payments, social media sharing, purchase history, and many more features.

“Apriva is pleased to bring our dozens of processor connections and the security of a mature payment gateway to Apptizer’s solution,” said Stacey Finley Tappin, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Apriva. “Apptizer and its merchants can quickly grow revenue and customer loyalty by leveraging Apptizer’s mobile stores and Apriva’s payment platform. We are excited to promote this new integration to our ISOs and resellers.”

Apriva Integration Services allow Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), and mobile and embedded developers, to easily implement credit, debit, EBT, loyalty, and closed-loop payment processing into their solutions. Once integrated, applications and POS solutions can communicate with the Apriva Gateway over a wired or wireless network. Apriva maintains relationships with more than 30 payment processors in North America, along with all of the leading wireless carriers, and currently works with more than 1,100 merchant acquirers and ISOs across the United States and Canada, giving merchants and partners the choice to deploy end-to-end solutions best fit for their business.
