EMV- and NFC-ready device offers instant activation, semi-integration and Apple Pay promotion

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Feb. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ –Total Merchant Services, a leader in payment services and solutions, today announced that Groovv Terminal One is now for sale on Amazon.com. Groovv is now available via three of the largest online retailers after launching with Staples.com in December 2015 and Apple.com in October 2015.

Groovv Terminal One, which is free after a $99 rebate from Total Merchant Services, enables acceptance of all payment types including NFC, EMV chip cards and magnetic stripe cards as well as Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay. With its EMV capabilities, the device offers the highest level of card protection to its customers while helping merchants avoid credit card fraud liability. With virtually instant activation, merchants can plug in Groovv Terminal One and start accepting payments in minutes.

“By partnering with Amazon, we’re in a position to reach tech-savvy retailers who appreciate the opportunity to purchase and manage their payment systems themselves,” said Total Merchant Services CEO Joe Kaplan. ”By allowing merchants to instantly activate their terminal to accept payments, we are enabling online retailers such as Amazon to sell payment services they couldn’t sell previously.”

In addition to its leading-edge technology and affordability, Groovv Terminal One features no term contracts, nominimums and no hidden fees. New customers also receive up to $10,000 in free Apple Pay transaction processing for the first year. Groovv also includes an API and semi-integrated architecture that makes it fast and affordable for software developers to take advantage of Groovv Terminal One and EMV and NFC acceptance. The system encrypts sensitive card data at the terminal, keeping EMV and PCI compliance “out of scope” for POS software and apps.
