First Data Corporation has selected US electronic payments company VeriFone (NYSE: PAY) as the exclusive provider of point-of-sale (POS) payment acceptance systems in the Caribbean, the former said in a statement.

First Data is partnering with VeriFone to develop applications for VeriFone's Vx Solutions and VX Evolution countertop, wireless and PIN entry systems.
