Handpoint And Paysafe Partnership Awarded For Global Omni-Commerce


Best Payment Partnership Award awarded to Handpoint and Paysafe by MPE for solutions delivering frictionless electronic payments and secure transactions, both in-store and online, across North America and Europe.

Handpoint, in partnership with Paysafe, won the Best Merchant Payment Partnership award at the Merchant Payment Ecosystem (MPE) Awards ceremony in Berlin, providing a great testament to the tightly-integrated, international omni-commerce solution created for merchants across a wide range of verticals. The Handpoint and Paysafe partnership has resulted in a powerful enhancement to the way merchants can accept and manage their transactions, offering a frictionless journey to consumers and the ultimate omni-commerce platform; from retailers making important developments to combat the high street struggles, to major stadiums deploying fast, mobile payments in the stands, to subscription businesses now able to utilise tokenise-only methods for efficiently offering memberships.

It was a great honour for Handpoint to have been nominated for Best POS Innovation/POS Software Payment Application Award and to have won the Best Merchant Payment Partnership Award. "The ability for a merchant to benefit from both online and face2face payments, in multiple countries, through one provider, is fairly unique in the complex world of payments. Our partnership with Paysafe gives merchants a true omni-channel experience, through a single solution. The MPE Best Payments Partnership Award is an accolade for our efforts and innovation in this field, and we'll keep pushing the bar." – David Gudjonsson, CEO, Handpoint.

The MPE conference is a superb event to connect with senior industry professionals and to learn about the latest developments within the payment ecosystem. Widely discussed at this year's event was the importance of providing merchants with an integrated omni-commerce solution and of preparing for a future without hardware terminals, much like what Handpoint's CEO, David Gudjonsson, discussed during his keynote speaker session. At the event, Handpoint demonstrated how acquirers and ISOs can support merchants with a single solution for both CP and CNP transactions, just like Paysafe has successfully achieved with Handpoint's technology.
