26. Februar 2018 – Au an der Hallertau/München: The Munich fintech company RUBEAN AG (ISIN: DE0005120802, WKN: 512080) and CCV Deutschland GmbH, a subsidiary of CCV Group BV, Arnhem (NL), have agreed on a cooperation with the aim of turning smartphones into payment terminals for retailers. The agreement provides for the joint development and marketing of mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) payment terminals that are purely smartphone-based. In order to be able to process contactless payments (NFC), the retailer no longer needs any additional hardware, just an app on their smartphone.
This mPOS payment solution, which does not require any additional hardware, is particularly attractive for smaller and mobile retailers for whom the current payment terminals are too expensive and cumbersome. Mastercard and Visa, which specify the security requirements of the respective card networks, have been supporting the concept of a purely smartphone-based payment terminal since 2017.
Reinhard R. Blum, Managing Director of CCV Deutschland GmbH: “In the area of purely smartphone-based mPOS payment terminals, we decided to work strategically with RUBEAN because RUBEAN has done valuable preparatory work and has in-depth knowledge of mobile security.
Dr. Hermann Geupel, CEO of RUBEAN AG: “In order to bring our mPOS solution to market more quickly, we were looking for a modern POS terminal manufacturer and found this in CCV. CCV’s acCEPT solution outsources part of the POS terminal functions to the server and thus enables lean apps on end devices, in our case smartphones. "
CCV develops and sells electronic payment solutions in Germany, Benelux and Switzerland. With extensive technical know-how from more than 25 years of payment development, we are the ideal partner for branch retail as well as for owner-managed companies, which we support with individual solutions through our market and customer-oriented philosophy.
