In a nutshell
Spire Payments is a company designing and producing their own-branded card terminals. They partner with merchant service providers who can offer the card machines through custom solutions. Moreover, Spire works with payment companies to develop software for their terminals, for example by providing an application programming interface.
Spire has a support infrastructure in place to facilitate the launch of their terminals to any market internationally, including a variety of sectors in countries like India, Czech Republic, France, the Netherlands, US and UK. They are able to manage stock, fulfilment of orders, repairs, support and deployment of applications that merchants can use.
Currently, there’s a dozen card terminals listed on their website, some of which may seem familiar from resellers. For instance, the PosMate Smart Bluetooth PIN Pad was used by Elavon MobileMerchant, whose main focus is not to design unique card readers, but to provide a managed solution with card processing included.
