Paydiant and pcAmerica Launch Fully Integrated Mobile Payments Offering

Supports Complete Mobile Wallet Capabilities for Retailers and Restaurants

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jun 14, 2012) - Paydiant, a Boston-based mobile payments provider, today announced that pcAmerica has integrated the Paydiant mobile payments software into pcAmerica Cash Register Express™ and Restaurant Pro Express™ point-of-sale (POS) solutions. Using the integrated offering, any of pcAmerica's 50,000 retail and restaurant POS software users can now accept Paydiant-powered mobile payments and offers. pcAmerica customers can also support a number of other compelling mobile wallet capabilities including pay online; offer and coupon creation, selection and redemption in store and online; and digital receipts and refunds by simply updating to the latest version of the pcAmerica software.

A number of retailers in Colorado, Massachusetts, New York and South Carolina have already deployed the integrated solution.

Paydiant provides a white-label mobile payment and offer platform that allows banks, retailers and restaurants to deploy mobile wallet capabilities into their own iPhone® and Android™ applications. As a software-only, cloud-based solution, restaurateurs and retailers can accept Paydiant mobile payments and offers using their existing POS infrastructure and consumers can install a mobile wallet on their existing iPhone and Android smartphones.

pcAmerica develops POS software applications for retail stores and restaurants of all types and sizes:

"Retailers benefit from a retail POS system that is easy to use and enables cashiers to ring up sales fast and keep customer wait times short," said Chris Gardner, co-founder of Paydiant. "With Paydiant's mobile wallet and mobile payment platform, pcAmerica customers can offer fast, secure, mobile payments using any tender type. Payment processing costs go down while customer convenience and loyalty increase."

"Mobile payments are the future and that future is now for our retail and restaurant customers," stated David Gosman, CEO of pcAmerica. "By integrating the Paydiant mobile payments solution into our POS offerings, we're offering our users a tremendous opportunity to differentiate the experience for their customers while increasing their operational efficiencies. It's a seamless transition that leverages their existing POS investment."

The Paydiant mobile wallet acceptance platform has been deployed in several U.S. regions in partnership with prominent card-issuing banks, merchant processors, point-of-sale providers, retailers and restaurants. These rollouts will be expanding aggressively over the course of 2012. pcAmerica customers interested in deploying integrated mobile wallet capabilities and participating in regional launches should contact sales@pcamerica.com.
