mPOS Tracker research highlights mPOS continues to expand internationally, particularly in emerging markets; is the number one priority for merchants ranking even higher than security; and receipts have the potential to become an important marketing channel for merchants. Conclusions show for the first time, mPOS and mobile solutions are viewed by merchants as their number one key priority. Also mPOS merchants have had their silver bullet all along. Sales artifacts were once thought of as only a required part of the transaction, but have now become important communication “canvases” to be used by merchants as important channels to the customer. And mPOS land grab focused on bringing customers to merchants. Amazon’s acquisition of GoPago could ignite SMB mPOS by handing small merchants not only a POS solution but one that supports its Pay with Amazon plug in, allowing them to serve 230 million+ consumers right from the start.
