Hong Kong-based mPOS manufacturer, BBPOS, has released WisePad2 enabling the upmost flexibility for it to be used in all environments – integrated POS, semi-integrated POS or stand-alone.
The new product only requires a mobile network connection. WisePad2 does not require the necessity of carrying around a second additional device such as a tablet, as required with previous mPOS products, it can be directly connected to the payment gateway by Wifi or GPRS.
Costs for merchants, as a result, are greatly reduced and less prescriptive – the necessity, for example, of having the correct version of a mobile phone is no longer a requirement.
The enhanced technology supports all verification methods with card readers for magnetic stripes; EMV (EuroPay, MasterCard and Visa); and NFC (Near Field Communication), as well as a secure PIN pad. Customers using their debit and credit cards with varying verification methods abroad will not experience non-acceptance with merchants who are using WisePad2 as their mPOS.
BBOS says the future of mPOS and the potential benefits of WisePad2 for new merchants including insurance companies and couriers and, indeed, their customers. Insurance companies commonly scratch credit cards with a pencil to make an imprint of their client’s credit card number details on the paperwork. Due to the associated high risk, banks will charge additional fees to the insurance company and hence, customers will also be charged more says the Company.
The company was founded in 2008.
