GHL Systems’ VR-300 contactless reader was chosen to service contactless payments within the Shanghai Expo. The Bank of Communications (BOCOM) decision to employ the VR-300 contactless reader was driven by its ready compliance with MasterCard’s PayPass and Visa payWave’s contactless standards – thus ensuring hassle-free contactless schemes.

The award-winning VersaRead VR -300 which accepts payments through all recognized standards as well as incorporates the latest Contactless (RF) Technology was believed to be ideal for a purpose as such.
