Arlington, TX-based Pinnacle Corporation, a supplier of automation technology to the convenience-retail and petroleum industries, has announced payment acceptance support for mobile-based Apple Pay™ and Google Wallet™ with Pinnacle Palm POS™.

“Pinnacle’s support of mobile payment platforms is important because it helps us enhance our goal of making things as convenient and painless for the customer as possible. Mobile payments can speed up the transaction and put the customer in control,” said Chris Boebel, director of IT at Delta Sonic, a chain of 28 convenience stores and full-service car washes based in Buffalo, NY.

Acceptance of Apple Pay or Google Wallet mobile payments with Pinnacle’s Palm POS requires three primary technology components: 1) a consumer mobile device that supports the mobile payment method, 2) a contactless enabled payment terminal, 3) and a payment acquiring host network that supports these transaction types.
