SMALL BUSINESSES AND LARGE RETAILERS ARE TURNING TO MOBILE POINT-OF-SALE TO INCREASE SALES AND BROADEN THEIR CUSTOMER BASE
Merchants that have never accepted card payments and previously operated on a cash and invoice only basis are turning to Mobile POS to increase their sales and expand their customer base. Existing large retailers are also adopting Mobile POS solutions and integrating them into their current point-of-sale environment to enhance the retail and payment experience.
Mobile devices are increasingly being used by merchants of all sizes as Point-of-Sale terminals. In order to promote this new and innovative avenue for payments, MasterCard introduced the Mobile POS Program to ensure safe, simple and smart transactions when consumers use their debit, credit and prepaid cards at Mobile POS.
The program allows solution providers to register their Mobile POS solutions according to Industry Standards and the MasterCard Mobile POS Best Practices Guide. Participation in the program is free of charge. The result is a comprehensive list of Mobile POS solutions that are best in class and ready to be deployed.
