LAS VEGAS, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- 3PEA International, Inc. (OTC: TPNL.PK - News), a payment solutions company, announced today its latest Payment Terminal, the PayPad V3. The PayPad PC-POS Payment Terminal offers one of the industry's smallest footprints in a PC-POS device category and at an extremely affordable price point. The new modern ergonomic design fits comfortably in the hand and makes it easy to use while custom labeling creates a new vehicle for brand awareness. In response to numerous inquiries and requests from within the payment industry, 3PEA has identified and acknowledged the need for affordability, convenience, robust flexibility, compact design and has developed a cost- effective combination of form and function to address the rapid growth and needs of the PC-POS device market. Additionally, the 3PEA new and improved architecture, along with its API, allows Windows developers to quickly and easily turn any Windows software application into a fully functioning payment terminal. Unlike most other MSR/PINpad devices, the PayPad has been specifically designed since its inception for seamless integration with the Windows Operating System. PayPad V3 builds on the strengths of previous versions of the PayPad product line while adding higher levels of security and functionality. This upgrade will allow PayPad further penetration into traditional point-of-sale markets for the growing number of customers implementing Windows PC-based POS payment solutions. The company will begin accepting orders for the PayPad V3 PC-POS Payment Terminals in the second quarter of 2007. The newest PayPad will level the playing field by providing affordable deployments to financial service companies of all sizes who are currently using or are planning to use a Windows PC-based payment solution. PayPad V3 is a high-performance USB based peripheral device which incorporates an MSR (Magnetic Stripe Reader), EPP (Encrypting PINPad) and Smart Card (Integrated Circuit Card) Reader. The new version includes an LCD (16x2) display, enhanced tamper features to meet PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliance, and designed to be a handheld POS device. It has also been upgraded from a USB (Universal Serial Bus) 1.1 to USB 2.0. The PayPad V3 meets stringent security requirements, including a processor and RAM encased in epoxy with a secure cryptographic module, DES, 3DES, DUKPT and 3DES DUKPT support.
