Office stationery retailer Staples and mobile card payment provider payleven have set up a distribution agreement that’ll see the payleven Chip & PIN card reader made available in all Staples stores across the UK, Germany and the Netherlands.
payleven offers a Chip & PIN card reader that can be used via Bluetooth with an Apple or Android smartphone. Businesses simply pay a 2.75% transaction fee whenever they use payleven to process a credit or debit card payment.
Konstantin Wolff, founder and CMO of payleven, said “With Staples, we’ve gained an important and reliable partner for the European distribution of our card payments solution. Small and medium-sized businesses can now find our card reader in the same place where they already purchase products for the successful day-to-day running of their businesses.”
Last year payleven agreed a wholesale distribution deal with Ingram Micro in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, the UK, Spain and Poland.
