ID TECH RELEASES NEW MAGSTRIPE AND SMART CARD MOBILE READER: UNIPAY
Cypress, CA (November 25th, 2013) - ID TECH, a leading manufacturer of automated data entry, mobile payment, point of sale, and secure payment devices, has released its latest addition to the audio jack family of secure mobile card readers, a compact MagStripe and Smart Card mobile reader called UniPay.
“The UniPay is one of five audio jack mobile readers that ID TECH offers, but with the ability to give merchants the convenience to process payments internationally with a MagStripe or Smart Card,” said project manager, Yvonne Yong.
Alongside the growing, global demand for mobile payments and the slow infiltration of EMV technology to American payment systems, UniPay incorporates contact chip card reading and magnetic stripe reading all in one device. UniPay is EMV Level 1 approved with AES and TDES encryption algorithms, and DUKPT key management to ensure the consumers’ financial information is securely transmitted to the host device.
With the ability to connect to various mobile devices such as Apple and Android platforms with an SDK, UniPay transforms any mobile device with an audio jack into a POS system. UniPay enables merchants to accept magnetic stripe or smart card payments quickly and efficiently with ID TECH’s guaranteed operating life of a minimum of 100,000 card cycles. It also features a convenient USB port for charging and PC communication and requires minimal power consumption providing merchants with the ability to supply a better customer experience.
UniPay will be featured along with other ID TECH products at the NRF Big Show 2014 in New York City at booth #901.
