What is SoftPOS ?
SoftPOS is the new accessible payment method that simplifies contactless card acceptance.
It is also mentioned as tap to phone, tap on phone or tap to pay, depending on the deployment markets, but it all refers to the same technology.
SoftPOS enables merchants to accept contactless payments easily and securely on their smartphone.
In-store payments gain in fluidity, simplicity and convenience.
How does it work ?
Commercial off-the-shelf smartphones or tablets are turned into mobile point-of-sales. With the simple download of an application, businesses can instantly start to accept contactless payment easily and securely.
The tap to phone technology uses the NFC capability of the mobile device to process contactless transactions initiated with the smartcard or digital wallet held by the consumer.
