DALLAS -- August 13, 2013

Chase Paymentech, a leading global merchant acquirer, payment processor and
subsidiary of JPMorgan Chase & Co., today announced the launch of “Chase
Checkout” – solutions to help merchants seamlessly accept payments however
they do business: in store, online or on the go. Merchants can now securely
and efficiently accept card payments from their smartphones with the new Chase
Mobile Checkout app and encrypted card reader.

Chase Checkout helps merchants accept debit and credit card payments
effectively and securely, whether a card is swiped on a merchant’s Apple^® or
Android^TM-enabled smartphone, entered online or provided at a retail
location.

“We are always looking for ways to help merchants grow their businesses and
Chase Checkout does just this by enabling clients to accept payments however
they operate,” said Dan Charron, president of Chase Paymentech. “Chase
Checkout is a ‘one-stop shop’ for small-business owners: one agreement, one
system, one statement and one trusted merchant services’ relationship to
manage.”

The Power of a Single, End-to-End Payment Partner

Chase Checkout gives merchants the convenience of working with one trusted
provider – with integrated reporting, 24/7 live U.S.-based customer support
and a commitment to security– when they accept payments via:

  *Mobile Checkout: When merchants accept mobile payments with Chase
    Paymentech, they can process credit and signature debit card payments and
    gift card transactions in any location within the United States. Merchants
    have transaction level access to monitor and process voids and returns
    from their smartphones. Merchants can view sales and transaction summaries
    from the Mobile Checkout app after the payments have been processed.
    Additionally, they can create a catalog of item descriptions and images
    and email or text digital receipts. The use of signature capture and the
    location of the point of sale on the digital receipt helps minimize fraud
    and chargebacks. Finally, merchants’ customer data is protected in transit
    with point-to-point encryption.
  *Retail Checkout: In retail settings, Chase Paymentech’s Future Proof
    Terminal helps merchants accept both traditional and emerging forms of
    payment such as EMV (Europay, Mastercard and Visa) chip-enabled cards,
    NFC-enabled (near field communications) mobile wallets and other
    contactless payments. Also, through iTerminal^®, businesses and
    professional service firms such as accounting, law and medical, can use
    their existing computers to accept payments, helping them save on
    traditional start-up equipment costs.
  *Online Checkout: Chase Paymentech offers e-commerce merchants, and
    merchants who accept telephone orders, a suite of PCI-compliant and
    easy-to-use web-based payment processing options accessible with a
    merchant’s existing computer. These options require no additional hardware
    and integrate seamlessly with merchants’ shopping cart functionality,
    catalog creation and inventory management.

Chase Mobile Checkout: Built with Specific Customer Needs in Mind

Chase Mobile Checkout is ideal for merchants who are interested in growing
their business by taking payments wherever their business takes them. This
includes businesses that wish to use mobile payment acceptance to enhance
their customers’ experience with services like line-busting or those that wish
to accept payments in the field, such as landscaping, maintenance or
transportation professionals. In addition, Chase Mobile Checkout is ideal for
small businesses that want to accept debit and credit cards but have found it
too difficult or too costly to do so in the past.

“The ability to serve my customers from anywhere helps deepen my relationship
with them,” said Irina Zhuravsky, owner of Irina’s Alterations in Dallas,
TX.“It’s comforting to know that I’m receiving the support and security I
need from Chase to conduct transactions while on the road.”

Chase Mobile Checkout’s compact card reader is battle-tested for real-world
use. The device, which fits securely in the audio port of Apple and
Android-enabled smartphones, features the recognizable Chase octagon and
includes a rechargeable lithium ion battery so it does not drain the
smartphone’s power supply. Having an integrated battery also increases the
likelihood of positive card reads on the first swipe, and since hardware
encryption is performed in the device, personal information is not stored
within the smartphone.

“Chase Mobile Checkout is not just smaller than carrying around a cash
register, it’s built for jobs like mine,” said Jamie Rourke, co-owner of RO
Style Salon in Tampa, FL. “When I am not in the salon, I travel all over the
nation as a freelance artist. It is so convenient and important for my
business to take a payment anywhere, 24/7, and it makes being a business owner
that much easier.”

The setup for Chase Mobile Checkout is simple. After merchants activate their
account, Chase Paymentech ships the card reader along with instructions on
getting started that include how to download the Chase Mobile Checkout app
onto a smartphone.
