PAX Technology provides safe and easy mobile payment solutions for Scholastic Book Fairs

A Scholastic Book Fair volunteer uses an iconic Scholastic Red E500 payment terminal with a hybrid Magnetic Stripe Reader (MSR) and Europay MasterCard Visa (EMV) Chip Reader that is user-friendly while providing quality, security, and ease of use for a successful book fair experience. 

Jacksonville, Fla. (March 4, 2021)– We have been faced with unprecedented times where even the youngest in our society have been forced to make quick adaptations while trying to process the ebb and flow of the world around them. While many children’s activities have come to a halt, Scholastic has remained committed to ensuring families still have access to reading through much-needed book distribution channels including, when possible, hosting Scholastic Book Fairs in the safest possible way where PAX Technology is proud to partner. 

Scholastic, celebrating its centennial anniversary, has been a constant for educators, parents and children. At its core, the company’s mission is to provide age-appropriate, engaging content to kids, helping them to navigate the world and determine their role in it.   

“Scholastic believes that independent reading is a critical part of children’s learning and growth, and that book choice is a crucial element in fostering a lifelong love of reading. Scholastic Book Fairs provide children with the opportunity to select the books they want to read, and discover the pleasure and power of reading,” says Scholastic Book Fairs President, Sasha Quinton.  

When a Scholastic Book Fair is hosted in a school anywhere in the country, kids and their parents and educators want a simple, secure and user-friendly experience.  PAX provides a mobile electronic payment solution that does just that, enhancing this already sought-after experience.  

“We are honored to partner with Scholastic who shares our belief in educating and informing children today as they are the future of our country,” says Andy Chau, CEO of PAX Technology.
