NEW YORK and IPSWICH, Mass., Nov. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CardFlight, a mobile point of sale (POS) technology provider, is proud to announce that Traveling Vineyard, a direct marketer of wines through in-home wine tasting events, will be using CardFlight to enable their distributors to accept payments, including EMV chip card payments, from mobile devices.
Traveling Vineyard has developed a proprietary iOS application to help Wine Guides plan and organize tastings. The application integrates CardFlight's Software Development Kit (SDK), encrypted mobile card readers, and payment gateway. CardFlight's Eclipse A200 card reader will allow Wine Guides to accept both magnetic stripe and EMV chip card payments by simply attaching the card reader to a smart phone or tablet and using the Traveling Vineyard application.
Benefits to Traveling Vineyard and their consultants include making it fast and easy to complete a sale, reduced order abandonment, reduced credit card processing costs, and integration with Traveling Vineyard's back-end provider for integrated analytics and reporting. Customers will benefit from being able to pay with credit card and not be burdened with carrying cash and checks.
