PARIS, CARTES & IDentification 2009, Hypercom Corporation (NYSE: HYC) today unveiled its state-of-the-art R3210 contactless reader for payment and value-added transactions such as gift/loyalty, pre-paid, ticketing and access control. The compact, high performance R3210 features an innovative clip-on, countertop or wall-mount design and easy plug & play set-up that allows merchants using Hypercom’s Optimum terminals to upgrade their current device to accept mobile payments and other contactless transactions. The R3210 offers fast and secure contactless capability for stand-alone terminals or integrated payment solutions at quick service restaurants, convenience stores, pharmacies, gas stations and newspaper kiosks, as well as sports venues and public transit environments.

“With the R3210, we are introducing an intelligent, smart choice for thousands of merchants that want to improve their customer service and sales volume by accepting contactless payments. Whether they want to invest in contactless technology today or in the future, the R3210 lets them do just that with a reader designed specifically for retailers worldwide” said Olivier Moraillon, PIN Pad and Contactless Global Product Manager, Hypercom Corporation.

Contactless payments provide key benefits to retailers and consumers in high transaction volume environments where speed is of the essence.
