Calverton, New York — November 3, 2020 — Electronic Payments, Inc. (EPI), national leader in payments and point of sale technologies, experienced a 12% increase in gross processing volume (GPV) for the third quarter of 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. Third quarter GPV exceeded $3.5 Billion amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The company attributes the growth to helping small businesses across the country navigate changes in consumer behavior and economic challenges to achieve continuity of commerce.
As one of the premier technology-driven payment and transaction processors, Electronic Payments is quick to adapt to consumer demand and a changing business environment. With cutting-edge solutions that are accessible, affordable, and intuitive, the company has empowered thousands of merchants to transition to the latest contactless technologies and attain new revenue streams from curbside, online ordering, and delivery services.
Products such as TableTurn® and ProCharge® have become everyday essentials for restaurants in need of mobile, contactless payments to safely process transactions curbside or off-premise. Integrated caller ID systems and DeliverMe online ordering streamline phone and online orders for pickup and delivery, helping restaurants expedite food orders, increase order accuracy, and ensure customer satisfaction.
