Lavu restaurant point of sale is now integrated with iZettle Payments, bringing completely integrated Chip and PIN processing and EMV smart card technology to users of the popular iPad POS. Lavu will now accept Chip and PIN in Europe, Mexico, and Brazil.
Albuquerque, NM, January 03, 2014 – Lavu Inc., makers of the original iPad POS for restaurants, has announced their partnership with European company iZettle Payments. International Lavu POS users can now accept Chip and PIN payments with a fully integrated system.
Lavu POS is currently used in over 80 countries worldwide, and can now offer Chip and PIN service to European countries such as Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom as well as Mexico and Brazil in the Americas.
This union completely integrates Lavu iPad POS with Chip and PIN processing hardware and EMV smart card technology. Complete integration means streamlined workflow and faster transactions, important to the hospitality industry.
“iZettle’s goal is to help small businesses take payments, whatever need they might have,” said Nina Fernstrom, Head of Partnerships & Operations UK. International Lavu clients can now use “Chip and PIN” processing with EMV smart card technology, as well as traditional swiped card processing. iZettle offers no fixed fees or lock-in contracts with a low processing rate.
Social payments company iZettle was founded in 2011 and has quickly risen to prominence in the European payments space. Sweden’s Financial Supervisory Authority regulates iZettle, whose services are EMV approved, compliant with PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard).
Lavu was the very first full-featured iPad POS App in the Apple App Store. Developed specifically for restaurants, bars and nightclubs, and quick serve business types, Lavu is a business management software suite that incorporates cloud data, a simple touchscreen interface, and wireless technologies.
“Lavu POS fulfills the need of many businesses around the world, whether it’s in the restaurant or hospitality industry. Through our partnership and integration, we are thrilled to be able to give these businesses access to iZettle payments and help them run their business in a more efficient way,” said Fernstorm.
Integrating iZettle with Lavu POS is simple. Once an iZettle account is created, Lavu clients will only need to add iZettle as a payment option in the Admin Control Panel. Lavu Inc. already has customers using the iZettle processing solution.
