Press release date: September 26, 2013
Provider will Expedite its Merchant Application Process Through Spindle's PSP Payment Solutions
Scottsdale, AZ — Spindle, Inc., (OTCQB: SPDL), a leading provider of mobile commerce solutions, has entered an agreement with MerchantPlus, a leading payment gateway and independent sales organization (ISO) headquartered in New York City's financial district. MerchantPlus is a registered ISO and MSP (MasterCard service provider) for Wells Fargo Bank.
As part of the arrangement, MerchantPlus will integrate Spindle's PSP payment solution into its NaviGate processing gateway for eCommerce and mobile transaction and incorporate a branded, Spindle-hosted "Apply Now" button into its website. The result will be an efficient, consolidated platform that accommodates real-time merchant application, decisioning, processing, and boarding activities. Through this easy-to-use interface, applicants for merchant accounts will receive a decision in real-time, and approved merchants will be summarily guided through the boarding process.
"We are proud that MerchantPlus will become our latest strategic ISO partner, and leverage Spindle's real-time decisioning, boarding and processing technology," stated John A. Tharpe, senior vice president of mobile payment strategy and business development at Spindle. "MerchantPlus clearly recognizes what we've known for some time: That merchants consistently demand immediate access to financial services through a comprehensive, integrated ecosystem. Together with MerchantPlus, we will deliver that integrated solution that customers demand."
"MerchantPlus is excited about its collaboration with Spindle," said Zachary Smith, founder of MerchantPlus. "We've been revolutionizing payments for online businesses for more than 10 years and the near-instant merchant account activation our customers will gain through the Spindle platform is unequaled in the traditional payments world. Coupled with our powerful gateway and integrated virtual terminal, we anticipate an expanded customer base and a better experience as more applicants are swiftly processed and boarded."
Leveraging the Spindle platform, MerchantPlus will feature the ability for merchants to seamlessly upgrade from instant activation accounts to the company's International and Enterprise electronic payment solutions.
