Ingenico to supply iPad card readers to Groupon - report

Tuesday 25 September 2012 | 11:31 CET | News
French payment terminal maker Ingenico has won a contract from online coupon company Groupon to provide a mobile payment system, reports Les Echos. According to the paper's sources, the Groupon Payments service presented in the US a few days ago will allow small business holders to turn their iPhone or iPad into a payment terminal. Ingenico provides a white-label plug-in bank card reader and encryption software. Groupon is paid on a commission basis. More deals of this sort may be on the way as Ingenico moves into a space occupied by US start-up Square, founded by Twitter owner Jack Dorsey.
