With a growing number of products in the Mobile Point of Sale Market, it is becoming increasingly easy to take a card payment on the go, which means you no longer require the correct amount of change on you anymore. On the other hand though with the recent release of the New £5 note, this sent people running to the nearest bank to grab their first freshly printed Money, showing we still love to actually hold the cash in our hands, and if you accidently leave your new fiver in your trouser pockets, it comes out just fine in the wash too!
But I’m here to blog about MPOS (Mobile point of sale).The use of MPOS has significantly increased in recent years in Retail outlets, along with the popularity of hand held and portable devices such as Apple iPads / iPods and Android tablets or smartphone. By connecting a Card reader via Bluetooth and download a suitable payment app, that’s all you will need to get started.
Once such example is PayPal Here. To explain how simple this is, Click here to watch the video.
So it would seem that with the technology we holding in our hands, we may not need to carry around a wallet full of cash anymore. This would certainly benefit a company who operate on the road, like a sandwich van or a break-down recovery van. Maybe you operate in a remote location, and getting to the bank is not so easy. So if you think it’s time to throw out the old fashioned checkout tills and upgrade, Visit our Online Shop to see our Range of MPOS Products.
So is MPOS going to wipe cash off the face of the earth? Perhaps Not! We must still remember that there are plenty of people who still use Cheques, and some who will only deal in Cash. MPOS is just an alternate way of using technology to take payments.
So were not heading into a cashless world just yet……But maybe one day…who knows!
