Finaro partners EveryPay to improve in-store payment acceptance

Tuesday 1 November 2022 14:42 CET | News

Malta-based Finaro has partnered payment gateway EveryPay to provide a unified SoftPOS card-present payment solution for Greek merchants.


From a customer's perspective, this partnership will offer some additional payment options, while merchants will benefit from simplified and streamlined POS terminal management. In essence, Greek merchants will be able to leverage this new payment solution to encourage customers to shop in-store in the context of Greece’s tourism industry getting back on track. 

The solution also aims to transform the acceptance capabilities of Greek merchants, who previously have been struggling with complicated POS terminal relationships and have been restricted in their ability to accept transactions from international customers. 

According to the official press release, EveryPay is currently servicing 90% of Greek marketplaces, and it will leverage Finaro’s smart acquiring capabilities and dynamic technology payment solutions in order to enable seamless in-store POS payments through a single, integrated API payment system. The system also aims to improve transaction approval and conversion rates by allowing merchants to accept payments directly on their phone or terminal without the need for additional hardware. 

More specifically, the solution will allow Greek merchants to accept card-present and contactless payments, including transactions made with mobile wallets like Apple Pay, Google Pay, or wearable items. Consequently, the number of third-party POS terminal relationships that merchants need to manage will be reduced. 

Following this partnership, merchants can also benefit from Finaro’s digital onboarding process, which allows documents and paperwork to be scanned and uploaded, signed electronically and sent digitally through Finaro’s digital dashboard. If all the documents are in order, the time taken for merchants and their sub-merchants to start accepting card payments is between 24 and 48 hours, according to the official press release.

The companies continuously invest in strategic partnerships and mergers and acquisitions to gain more market share.
