Osama Bedier announced at Money20/20 that he had signed up some big name launch partners including Chase Paymentech and Vantiv.
"Kick-starting an ecosystem requires a balance of great symbiotic partnerships with lighthouse brands that inspire others to join," said Bedier, who is also the creator of Google Wallet and a former long-time PayPal senior executive. "Chase and Vantiv are among the top payment technology companies in the country with close to a million merchants and a trillion dollars of payment volume. We couldn't be more excited to have them among a fantastic group of founding partners that also includes EVO, POS Portal and Creditcall." The announcement comes just days after the Poynt Smart Terminal was unveiled.
