SmartPesa, a Singapore-based payments technology company, has introduced PAX A920 Android point-of-sale (POS) solution, which will support both card and wallet checkout.
This is said to be first of its kind product in southeast Asia. The POS will accept multiple card payment schemes such as VISA, MasterCard, UnionPay and JCB debit and credit cards.
SmartPesa said that the solution enables fast card and QR payment service processing as well as provides access to loyalty programmes that offer reward points, coupons, cashbacks and redemption.
The Android POS additionally supports cash register (ECR), cloud point-of-sales, pay-at-table solutions, digital receipt management with searchable transaction history and streamlined reconciliation.
It obtained certification from Indonesia’s CIMB Niaga, the acquiring bank that processes and settles the card transactions. ADVT, MTIP, TIC and the country’s mandatory NSICCS have also certified the solution.
SmartPesa co-founder and CEO Barry Levett said: “With the Android POS ecosystem providing new functions and management capabilities, not only do we give merchants and customers a frictionless payments experience, but we have an enormous wealth of data from the usage of the system.
“This streamlines reconciliations and dispute resolution by giving merchants greater transparency on their digital acceptance, both on card and QR payments.”
In Indonesia, SmartPesa operates its merchant acquiring solutions with Visionet under the Mobey brand, which facilitates acceptance of digital payments.
Cloud point-of-sales such as MetaPOS can be run directly on Android POS for retail inventory and checkout.
