Prodigy Payment Systems Announces Partnership With MerchantZoneDomains
Richardson, TX. – May, 2 2009 - Richardson, TX based Prodigy Payment Systems, www.ProdigyPay.com, a leading merchant services provider, is proud to announce the addition of Wi-Fi and IP capable terminals to its catalog of products.
Terminals that are connected through a high-speed or broadband internet provider are considered IP terminals. Traditional terminals that require the use of a telephone line or modem to dial out are quickly being replaced by IP terminals because of the speed with which they can process a transaction. In most cases, IP terminals are able to process transactions in under 5 seconds, meaning more transactions can be processed because of less wait time. IP terminals can also handle multiple transactions simultaneously, which is convenient for merchants who will no longer need to maintain multiple phone lines and modems to process their payments.
Wi-Fi is a standard of delivering the speed and function of broadband by connecting devices together to create a wireless network. It has brought a new level of convenience to wireless payment processing without requiring a third party gateway provider and has become a customary offering in restaurants, bars and in some cases entire cities, which are providing this service to residents and merchants. In 2008 there were over 200,000 Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide.
Prodigy Payment Systems has partnered with industry leaders to add several IP enabled terminals including the ClearAdvantage Ethernet terminal, the Verifone VX570 and Hypercom T4100 to their catalog of products. Also, Prodigy will offer the Exadign XD2100SP and Verifone VX610 terminals, which are both Wi-Fi and IP compatible systems. Prodigy will continue to offer traditional wireless solutions for its customers as well.
"Prodigy is dedicated to continued partnerships with industry leaders in order to ensure our merchants receive the best fit for their payment processing needs," said John Crouch, Chief Information Officer. "IP and Wi-Fi enabled payment solutions are just another step in our goal to provide merchants with tailor-made solutions for their businesses."
