Ingenico Group Reveals Next-Generation of Its Mobile PIN Pad Card Reader

Ingenico Group, a provider of seamless payment technology, announced the launch of the Moby/8500, the latest addition to the company’s suite of mobile point of sale (mPOS) card readers. Featuring a consumer-friendly, innovative design, the Moby/8500 provides a reliable, consistent and secure experience for both the cardholder and merchant. As one of the first mPOS devices to receive the PCI PTS 5.x SRED certification, the Moby/8500 is designed as a secure payment solution for merchants of all sizes and is able to accept all forms of card-based payment, including EMV chip & PIN, EMV chip & sign, magstripe and NFC/contactless.

Coupled with Ingenico Group’s mPOS EMV SDK and EMV Gateway, the Moby/8500 allows ISVs and developers to achieve faster speed to market with a secure mPOS solution. Additionally, the ability to white label the product provides both solution providers and businesses with the option to custom brand the device. The Moby/8500 was designed to help reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) for merchants, which is achieved by providing an off-the-shelf solution with firmware and keys preloaded and the ability to update the device remotely once it’s in the field.

Throughout the development of the Moby/8500, Ingenico Group consulted with its customers to better understand their needs for a flexible mPOS solution, including an improved lightweight, ergonomic design and flexible mounting options. Additionally, the contactless acceptance antenna was moved to the front of the Moby/8500 so the device could address more use cases and fit new accessories, such as stands, chargers and cases. The device also features a more consumer-friendly look and feel, while still maintaining the features consistent with a robust POS solution.
