BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jan 9, 2014) - Merchant Warehouse®, a leading provider of payment technologies and merchant account services, today announced the expansion of its technology platform to include Payment Gateway Services. This offering provides increased flexibility for both point-of-sale (POS) developers and retailers, making it easier for them to take advantage of many of the payment solutions offered by Merchant Warehouse, including its flagship solution, the Genius™ Customer Engagement Platform™.
Payment Gateway Services is Merchant Warehouse's official gateway platform, which allows merchants to access Merchant Warehouse's full suite of technology solutions while maintaining their existing relationships with payment processors. With this enhanced capability, Merchant Warehouse will also be providing POS developers with ultimate flexibility, enabling their merchant customers to work with almost any processor.
"There's so much change happening in the payments industry; it's our ultimate goal and inherent responsibility to ensure our POS providers and the businesses they serve are prepared for the future," said Henry Helgeson, CEO of Merchant Warehouse. "It's our priority as a company to be as open and flexible as possible, bringing our partners and retailers the best technology solutions that interoperate with existing systems. Because of this, we're making it as seamless as possible for customers to connect to and leverage Merchant Warehouse technologies."
Over the past two years, Merchant Warehouse has observed major changes within the payments industry, and developed a suite of solutions to meet the evolving needs of merchants. New authentication methods (EMV, QR, NFC and BTE) continue to gain traction and mobile payment usage has increased. On top of that, businesses are implementing omni-channel products and POS systems are becoming increasingly consumerized. Merchant Warehouse's holistic solutions, including the new Payment Gateway Services, are designed to unlock capabilities for seamless connectivity to meet any merchant need.
