UPDATE 1/8/2019: First Data appears to have discontinued its Pogo product line and replaced it with Clover Go. See our Clover review for up-to-date information about First Data’s mobile payment processing solution.
Launched in 2012, Pogo (pogopayment.com, stylized as “Pogo>”) is a mobile payment processing service offered by First Data. Like Square or GoPayment, Pogo allows customers to accept credit and debit card payments via their smartphone or tablet using a small card-reading device and downloadable mobile app. Pogo also offers funding alerts, email and text receipts, account management tools, and free merchant account support. First Data is headquartered at 6200 S. Quebec St, Englewood, Colorado 80111 and uses Wells Fargo as its acquiring bank. Frank Bisignano is listed as the CEO of First Data.
