BA says no evidence global IT outage caused by cyber attack
LONDON, May 27 British Airways said on Saturday there was no evidence that a global breakdown of its IT systems had been caused by a cyber attack.
April 20 Canadian e-commerce software maker Shopify Inc said on Thursday it had launched a new wireless card reader in the United States.
The rates charged will be about 2.4 percent per swipe, and the device will compete with the likes of Jack Dorsey-led Square Inc's card reader, which costs merchants at least 2.75 percent per swipe.
Shopify said the card reader will work with iOS and Android operating systems and support Visa, MasterCard and American Express cards, among others.
New customers, and existing merchants not yet using the company's point-of-sale systems can get the reader for free.
Merchants who own a Shopify point-of-sale system will have to pay $29 for the reader, the company said. Square, which also makes wireless card readers, sells it for $49.
Shopify's card reader will be available online on the company's website. (Reporting by Ahmed Farhatha in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
