The new mobile point-of-sale superhero PAYD™ PRO will whisk fans through lines and support exhibitor sales
TORONTO, Aug. 26, 2014 /CNW/ - Calling all comic-crazed fans: paying for entry into FAN EXPO Canada™ will be easier and faster this year. Moneris Solutions Corporation ("Moneris"), Canada's largest credit and debit card processor, will be the official sponsor and mobile payment solution provider at this year's convention. PAYD™ PRO, Moneris' new mobile payment superhero with Interac® Debit powers, will give attendees the flexibility to use different payment options at the entrance or during the show, helping to make the convention experience more enjoyable and hassle-free.
"FAN EXPO attracts large crowds, and we are excited to give fans and exhibitors alike an even better convention experience by removing the encumbrance of carrying cash," says Rob Cameron, Chief Product and Marketing Officer at Moneris. "With PAYD PRO, FAN EXPO visitors will get through lines faster, and exhibitors can increase their sales opportunities with more payment options."
The FAN EXPO Canada convention, taking place between August 28 and August 31, is the largest comics, sci-fi, horror, anime and gaming event in Canada and is the third largest in North America. The pop culture extravaganza, which includes appearances from celebrity guests, is expected to host over 125,000 fans at 750,000 square feet of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre during the four-day line-up.
With PAYD PRO, Moneris will give FAN EXPO exhibitors a secure and easy way to process payments at their booths. In addition, fans purchasing same-day tickets using Interac Debit will have the opportunity to "jump the line" and enter the convention faster. PAYD PRO ambassadors will be onsite throughout the event to showcase the superpowers of PAYD PRO and process ticket sales on the spot, decreasing entry wait times.
PAYD PRO, the first and only smartphone-based mobile point-of-sale solution ("mPOS") in Canada to accept both Interac Debit and credit card payments, allows merchants to process payments quickly and securely anywhere they do business. It is the first mPOS product to include EMV® Chip & PIN and contactless payment technology.
