Constellation Payments, a leading gateway and merchant services provider specializing in integrated payment processing solutions for software applications, have revealed that its integrated payment terminal solution, and contactless payment functionality, have been certified for Canada.
With this certification, Constellation Payments is the first ISO to attain approval with Elavon for EMV contact and contactless terminal functionality in Canada, including both credit and Interac debit. The latest Elavon certification also authorizes Constellation Payments for online credit card processing services for Mexico.
Constellation Payments is a trusted single-source payment technology and support partner to point of sale (POS) software providers representing a wide variety of verticals including: fitness, government entities, municipalities, moving and storage, club management, event registration, attractions, and more.
Having integrated with Constellation Payments’ transaction gateway and processing platform, these certifications enable Constellation Payments’ software provider partners to immediately broaden their market reach to Mexican and Canadian regions.
“It’s always been our goal to provide a single connection for our channel partners and their customers – one integration that enables them to extend their reach to anywhere in the world,” said Steven Pinado, CEO of Constellation Payments. “Our focus now, and in the months ahead, will remain on adding new geographies and payment capabilities, so that our channel partners, and their customers, can increase their market reach and continue growing their customer base.”
With direct oversight of its own proprietary payment gateway, Constellation Payments is uniquely positioned to continue certification with processors at a rapid pace. The company’s expansion and certification plans include terminal integration in the EU and Mexico, as well as certification of eCommerce functionality in the Middle East and South America.
