MineSec partners with Discover® Global Network for Tap on Mobile enablement program
MineSec today announces a partnership with Discover® Global Network, the payments brand of Discover, to support the onboarding of Discover acquirers and payment solution providers to the Discover® Tap on Mobile solution.
Through this partnership, MineSec and Discover Global Network offer a strategic jumpstart to innovations in SoftPOS payment experiences across multiple industries such as delivery services, transit, in-store retail and food and beverage services.
The Discover Tap on Mobile (ToM) solution allows merchants to accept contactless Discover payments anywhere by turning any NFC-enabled mobile device, like a smartphone or tablet, into a Contactless D-PAS terminal with no extra hardware. Discover Global Network Cardholders worldwide can simply tap their card or phone on the merchant’s mobile device, and the transaction is completed through the Discover Global Network qualified ToM app that integrates the MineSec SoftPOS Solution.
“SoftPOS brings many benefits to the entire payment ecosystem, and even more opportunities for small and medium business merchants who were previously unable to ride the contactless payments wave,” says Angus Chiu, Chief Executive Officer of MineSec. “Our collaboration with Discover Global Network will accelerate digital inclusion for these merchants who have been traditionally underserved by payment service providers.
“This strategic partnership highlights the unique payment solutions we can provide our partners and merchants,” said Annie Zhang, Managing Director and Head of Asia Pacific at Discover. “Leveraging the full suite of the Discover Global Network helps our partners like MineSec better serve their customers and ultimately provide a better payment experience for consumers.”
Discover Global Network has more than 280 million cardholders, more than 60 million merchant acceptance locations and 1.8 million ATM and cash access locations. Discover Global Network includes Discover Network, Diners Club International®, PULSE® and more than 25 alliance partner networks across the globe.
