Offering the right product or service at the right time and place is essential for business growth, but that’s not the only step toward success. The customer experience throughout the buying journey is just as important. 

Friction in the payment process can lead to frustration and erode trust, ultimately driving customers away. But there is an exciting upgrade in the market!

The next wave of payment acceptance capabilities

It’s no surprise that SoftPOS, the latest innovation that is revolutionizing the POS industry, was last year’s buzzword. With 2023 set to be its prime time, SoftPOS is quickly becoming the go-to choice for merchants of all sizes and industries.

This software-based solution democratizes payment acceptance by allowing anyone to use a mobile device to accept contactless payments from EMV cards, digital wallets, and smartwatches.

Whether it’s a trusty smartphone or a sleek tablet, SoftPOS will turn it into a payment terminal. Exciting, right?

Not only does SoftPOS eliminate the need for costly and bulky POS terminals, but it also reduces ongoing maintenance costs. Its simplicity and flexibility allow for easy payment processing anywhere, anytime. This makes SoftPOS the ideal solution for businesses looking to boost sales, cut expenses, and enhance customer experience.

While it’s currently only available on Android devices, iOS users will be able to get their hands on it later this year, further expanding reach and accessibility of SoftPOS.

One-for-All solution

SoftPOS is built to meet the needs of everyone – small, medium-sized, and large enterprises – whether your merchants need mobility and functionality for their daily business operations or an extra payment device for a weekend pop-up market.
