ROCHESTER, N.Y. (Business Wire) -- Paychex, Inc., a leading provider of payroll, human resource, insurance, and benefits outsourcing solutions for America's small- and medium-sized businesses – in partnership with Elavon, a leading global payments provider – today announced the introduction of Paychex Payment Processing Services, a full suite of payment processing solutions, including credit and debit card processing, mobile and online payment services, and point-of-sale (POS) solutions, designed to meet the evolving needs of today's small businesses.

“With the addition of payment processing services, we're adding a single-provider payments solution to fulfill a need that's critical to the success of many businesses,” said Martin Mucci, Paychex president and CEO. “Through our partnership with Elavon, our suite of services takes pressure off the business owner by assisting with payment industry compliance requirements and providing them with the latest technology, while preparing them for the future.”

The Paychex offering is an all-in-one payment processing solution that makes it easy for business owners to accept credit and debit cards, whether they have a storefront or are on the go. In addition to credit card processing, the Paychex solution allows business owners to electronically deposit checks, offer gift cards, and earn revenue through dynamic currency conversion.

“With our aligned focus on customers and our fast, secure payment processing solutions, Elavon has established itself as a top choice. We look forward to working with Paychex to bring resources, capabilities, and technology as we continue to provide access to an integrated payment gateway,” said Simon Haslam, President and CEO at Elavon.

Taking payments anywhere and anytime is easy and convenient with the online payment terminal and mobile payment processing app that turns most iPhone®, iPad®, or AndroidTM devices into a payment terminal with features robust enough to serve as the primary terminal.

Business owners may also choose from a variety of point-of-sale solutions, including the cloud-based POS systems for the Apple iPad and other PC platforms. With this fully integrated system, business owners can accept multiple payment types, apply discounts, track inventory, and access detailed reports and analytics from their computer or iPad to better manage their business. Paychex also offers a selection of EMV-enabled credit card terminals for accepting the new chip-based credit cards already in use across the world, and making their way to the U.S.
