ShopKeep, a cloud-based technology provider, has expanded its partnership with payment technology provider First Data to integrate its point-of-sale (POS) software with the latter’s Clover POS platform.
ShopKeep will integrate with First Data's Clover platform in accordance with recently-announced Integrated Solutions Group, a new business segment focused on expanded software developer tools for integration with First Data’s platforms.
Under the partnership, First Data will ensure ShopKeep’s POS solution will remain available via its distribution network, which includes bank partners, retail partners and independent sales organisations.
The cloud-based technology provider will also incorporate First Data’s payment processing and security tools, as well as the Clover Go software developer kit and the Clover hardware suite that accepts EMV, NFC and mag stripe transactions.
First Data senior vice president of Integrated Solutions Group EJ Jackson said: “We are thrilled to announce this partnership with ShopKeep, a pioneer in point-of-sale software. The agreement illustrates First Data’s commitment of providing an open platform that supports innovation across industries.”
ShopKeep chief revenue officer Etie Hertz said: “Having worked closely with First Data for many years, we recognize that they have set the gold standard for payments.
“This partnership allows us to extend our relationship with First Data and ensures that the expansive universe of independent retail and restaurant merchants they touch will now all have access to ShopKeep’s best-in-class POS solution.”
