Want to accept card payments but don't want the hassle of bringing a credit card terminal around? Guess what — you can now accept credit card payments on your phone!
In today's digital era, mobile point of sale (mPOS) technology has emerged as a crucial tool for businesses to keep up with the increasing demand for flexible, secure, and convenient payment solutions.
mPOS systems allow merchants to accept payments anytime, anywhere, without the need for traditional credit card terminals. In this article, we will discuss the importance of mPOS systems in modern business settings and introduce such as HitPay's mobile app, designed to simplify the payment process for SMEs.
The HitPay mobile app has free tools for in-person, contactless payments, providing a seamless and secure alternative to traditional credit card terminals.
The first tool, Tap To Pay, allows your mobile device to work as a credit card terminal. By tapping the customer's card to the back of your phone, you can accept credit card payments with ease. This feature supports cards such as Visa and Mastercard, as well as NFC wallet payments like Apple Pay and Google Pay. The HitPay app ensures that Tap To Pay transactions are completely secure, making it an ideal solution for merchants seeking a seamless credit card terminal experience without additional costs or hardware.
On the other hand, Scan To Pay enables merchants to accept payments by asking customers to scan a QR code generated on the merchant's phone. This tool supports a wide range of payment methods, including credit cards, NFC wallet payments, bank transfers, BNPL installments, and e-wallets. Scan To Pay is best suited for merchants who want to offer a comprehensive suite of payment methods for in-person sales.
