Payments provider myPOS has released its first counter-top device targeting hotels, restaurants and retail store merchants.
The new desktop model, myPOS Hub+, was launched during the Money 20/20 expo in Las Vegas on Monday.
myPOS has traditionally offered compact, mobile devices that have been popular with taxi services and catering sectors.
Christo Georgiev, company founder, said: “Until now we have been selling mobile, compact devices that can be used by the merchant on the counter or on the go.
“The myPOS Hub+, however, moves us in a different direction because it is a counter-top payment device. It combines payment terminal, cash register and access to other business apps all in one.”
The device runs on an android operating system and comes with two touch screen options.
“This type of device is sought after in the retail sector, as merchants can manage their inventory, cloud-based accounting, loyalty programs, etc,” added Georgiev.
“A dedicated cash register and point of sale (POS) terminal and a printer in one, the myPOS Hub+ can be the perfect solution for hotels, restaurants and retail stores which want to take the customer experience to the next level.”
Available across Europe
The myPOS Hub+ is expected to be available to customers throughout Europe before the end of the year. In addition, the company hopes to expand into the US markets.
Georgiev said: “myPOS is one of the fastest growing European payment solutions for SMEs and we are interested in stepping into the US market, eventually.
“We bring valuable know-how when it comes to real-time settlement and cash flow management. This goes beyond just accepting payments. We are open for starting new partnerships with US payment platforms or financial institutions.”
Last year, myPOS opened its first-ever retail store in London’s Knightsbridge. It now also has stores in Amsterdam, Sofia, Milan, Barcelona, Antwerp and Paris.
