BLACKSTONE POS PART OF GROUNDBREAKING ALLIANCE
Blackstone, one of the nation's leading providers of prepaid products and services, was recently endorsed by the New York-based, National Merchants Association (NMA). The National Merchants Association was established to assist independent merchants with the day-to-day workings of their businesses. Commenting on the POS endorsement, NMA president, Michael diBarro said, "We are always looking for ways to expand our operations and help members at the same time. That's why we're excited about this deal. We're encouraging our members to use Blackstone POS and start earning right away." Blackstone POS is the most innovative point-of-sale system on the market today. By integrating the processing of all major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express & Discover Card), bank cards and ATM cards with the sale of prepaid phone cards into one, easy-to-use terminal, Blackstone POS has revolutionized the electronic transaction industry. Blackstone general manager, Mike Acton says, "The NMA is one of the few trade organizations representing independent vendors in New York City and across the country. The Blackstone POS terminal enables NMA's retailers to compete with the larger, more established chains by offering their customers a choice of payment and service options at the register." Blackstone has rapidly become one of the country's largest providers of prepaid telecommunications products and services with over 300,000 retail locations nationwide. In addition to the industry's widest assortment of prepaid phone cards, prepaid and postpaid cellular products, Blackstone also offers the most technologically advanced point-of-sale system on the market today.
