Comepay, Inc. (OTC PINK: CMPY) (“the Company”) is pleased to announce that Chek-online LLC, a subsidiary of Comepay, Inc. and the manufacturer of the smart terminal and fiscal cash register line “Cassatka” has concluded an agreement with the National Payment Card System (“NSPK”) for the use of contactless payment system “Mir” for the Cassatka Mini series of smart terminals.
NSPK, the operator of the Russian national contactless payment system “Mir” recently concluded an agreement with Chek-online for the supply of materials required to develop customized solutions for the Cassatka Mini mobile smart terminal, including contactless payments.
The Cassatka Mini, designed as a handheld, easily transportable unit to help individuals and businesses comply with Russian Tax legislation 54-FZ is ideally suited for public transport, couriers, taxis and other similar businesses due to the built-in merchant acquiring, the ability to replenish travel card balances and make instant payments for transport, delivered goods and ticket purchases.
The Cassatka Mini is currently processing payments made via the Visa and Mastercard payment systems.
Implementation of the “Mir” contactless payment process shall consist of two stages: (i) technical protocol coordination and (2) full testing of the payment certification process. Once both testing stages are complete, the Cassatka Mini smart terminal will be officially included on the list of supported NSPK card payment devices.
Mr. Dmitry Tsatskhin, CEO of Comepay, added, “Almost all the cards currently being issued in Russia are contactless. However, not all POS-terminals and online payment terminals can accept payments via contactless Mir card swiping. The certification underway for the contactless swiping system integrated with our Cassatka Mini will enable Mir Card holders to make any type of single-swipe purchases at any Cassatka Mini point of sale, further widening the appeal of our highly functional and compact hand held units.”
