CES 2013: ShopKeep POS and Griffin Partner on iPad POS System




Griffin and ShopKeep POS have partnered up on a new iPad stand with integrated credit card reader, designed to be a physical point of sale terminal for retail stores.

The stand will be available only to ShopKeep POS customers beginning this quarter.

Quote:
Durability and secure credit card transactions are often the main concerns merchants have for their POS system. Griffin's Kiosk Retail addresses these pain points with an integrated magnetic card reader and impact-resistant housing for the iPad. For secure transactions, the built-in magnetic card reader is TDES encrypted and has DUKPT key management, similar to the current MagTek® swiper that ShopKeep POS offers.

[...]

"We researched many POS companies before selecting ShopKeep POS as an exclusive launch partner for the Kiosk Retail in the United States," said Dean Shortland , Director of Business Development at Griffin Technology. "We are devoted to creating intuitively designed solutions that enhance user experience and the simple and powerful solutions that ShopKeep POS offers to small businesses fit well with our company focus. Plus, with over 3,500 merchants across the country, they are the leading iPad POS company in the US, and we are looking to scale our solution quickly."
The press release does not share details about pricing or how the stand actually connects to the iPad, whether through Lightning/30-Pin ports, or via the headphone jack like Square's more portable card reader does.
