We knew that joining RSPA would allow us to serve this powerful community of retail innovators in a greater way.
With RetailNOW around the corner, it was simply time to make things official. We're now proud members of the Retail Solutions Providers Association – North America's association for the point-of-sale technology ecosystem. We took the opportunity to ask John Clarke, CEO of Worldnet Paments, a few key questions to get us properly introduced to the thousands of RSPA members across the country.
- What's the pitch?
Worldnet provides credit card payment options for smarter consumers. We’re the leader in unattended payments for kiosks, self-checkouts, curbside, smart cabinets, and self-service retail. Our team of payment ninjas works with leading ISVs to tackle their payments problems, so they can focus on running and scaling their business.
- Why RSPA now?
We solve payment problems for 100s of ISVs in the unattended space. RSPA allows us to serve this community of retail innovators in a greater way. We’re here to simplify the payments side of things because no payments integration is too complex for our team of developers and engineers. We offer a developer-friendly EMV-ready SDK on multiple platforms and access to a range of hardware options and processors. Whether your business needs contactless, Quick Chip, Apple Pay, Google Pay – we’ve got it solved.
- What makes you different?
Payments can be really complicated. We just listen to really understand the problem and apply an engineering mindset to solution design. We set our customers up to scale because of the interoperability and freedom of choice that’s built into the solutions we roll out.
- What verticals do you serve?
Retail, Kiosks, Vending, Arcade, Amusement, Parking, Laundry, Car Wash, Transportation, Cannabis/CBD, Hair Salons, Spas, and anywhere unattended payments can be accepted.
- What do you provide?
Payments consulting and solution design for ISVs. We offer a developer-friendly EMV-ready SDK on multiple platforms and access to a range of hardware options and processors.
- Fun fact, GO!
We’re proud payments geeks who can show you the proper way to drink a Guinness.
- What excites you the most about the future of the Retail IT industry?
Consumer behavior has changed in the most dramatic way – everything needs to change to address this digital shift. Their expectations are driven by remarkable online experiences; retail now needs to apply these proven online models in the physical world.
Retailers need to prioritize open cloud-based solutions, flexibility, and more choice for smarter consumers. This is what excites me the most because we get to help them do this and increase their revenues by simply providing them and their customers with a superior payments experience.
As we gear up for a comeback to live events in 2021, we know that things will be different but we're ready to take over Nashville during RetailNOW's return on July 25-28th. If you'll be attending please let us know, so we can show you the town and nerd out on payments talk.
