Global Pioneers in Mobile & #NextGenPOS

Leading the way. Doing it right.

Handpoint has been a pioneer in defining integrated payments and #NextGenPOS, from advancing the checkout experience with mobile technology to launching open payment integrations for all emerging POS platforms -- on 3 continents.

We provide solutions for merchants, acquirers, payfacs, ISOs and ISVs who are delivering this edge for payments: where customer experience and management matter, where payments are embedded seamlessly, and where mobile technology fuels growth. Handpoint's software terminal, international gateway, and terminal management system enable the future of acquiring, from mPOS and integrated POS to a future without terminals.

Handpoint. Go Mobile. Go Global.

Powering business in the aisle and around the globe

With over 20 years of experience helping acquirers, enterprise merchants, and ISVs on 3 continents, we have built a platform that goes way beyond hardware to make mobile payments simple, secure, and scalable.

Founded

Handpoint’s roots date back to 1999 when the founders set up a company to leverage first generation mobile technology to help merchants gain visibility and simplify operations.

Having built the business twice and sold to start over again, the founders have built on years of experience and progressed Handpoint into a leading payments platform designed for next generation point-of-sale.

Milestones

Handpoint led the way in mobile EMV – introducing mobile POS to the airlines, emv enabling several airlines for the first time, and delivering the worlds first EMV mobile POS a decade ago. We delivered the world‘s first PCI-P2PE payment applications for mobile EMV and built a state of the art platform for making mobile POS scalable, sustainable, and secure.

We opened access to that platform with the first simple APIs for iOS and Android, bringing secure EMV to the dynamic space of nextgen pos. We then certified the Handpoint platform on 2 then 3 continents. In 2017 we focused on the cloud, migrating and certifying our platform on AWS and delivering EMV and NFC for web-based points of sale.

And now as the opportunity for omnicommerce continues to grow, we have expanded from to serve that opportunity with tokenization with multiple acquirers, standalone integrated-ready terminals, and new payment types for omnicommerce, while continuing our global expansion.
