Payleven, Europe's mobile payments pioneer, joins forces with Taxiverband Berlin, TVB, one of the leading taxi associations in Berlin.
The test project is the next step for payleven to bring its solution to the public. Now anybodyÂ´s iPhone or iPad can be transformed into a mobile card terminal in a matter of seconds, enabling you to accept card payments anytime and anywhere – e.g. in a Taxi. Simply download the free payleven app and register.
During the past weeks, the new payleven technology was presented to the members of the TVB.
Detlev Freutel, of TVB's executive committee, said "The Taxiverband Berlin-Brandenburg is a network with a wide range of taxi-companies who will benefit from a mobile payment solution. That is why we picked payleven's innovative approach for a first testing period. We think everyone will profit from it: the taxi companies, payleven and the customers."
The first TVB members are already using payleven's cashless payment solution. The payleven app guarantees secure and smooth processing by working closely with leading international payment service providers. payleven is tailored to the needs of small businesses: no minimum revenue or monthly fees. The billing is solely based on transactions. In Germany and the UK payleven transaction costs are 2.75%. Any card payment from â‚¬1 can be accepted.
Detlef Platte of TVB's executive committee: â€žWe are always looking for great innovations. payleven offers us the opportunity to allow credit card payments without a monthly fee and a bulky card terminal. Many of our members have been waiting for this opportunity, that's why we want to try it now."
Co-Founder and CMO Konstantin Wolff: "Traditional solutions for accepting electronic cash payments are mostly expensive, not mobile and not customized to the needs of small businesses. Taxi drivers in particular know these problems. Thus, we are looking forward to the partnership with the TVB and a close and longstanding cooperation."
