Per Juniper Research, the growth of SoftPOS will increase to $10 trillion and more than 34.5 million merchants globally will deploy Software POS by 2027. What are the highlights of SoftPOS that make it gain a growing popularity?
1. Cost reduction
The Software POS solution allows merchants to accept payments on their mobile phones without the need to purchase additional hardware. But this only works for individual businesses run by a single person and they can use their phone as a tool to accept payments. For small-size businesses, they still need to spend on additional equipment. However, it doesn’t mean they cannot reduce the costs.
The traditional payment acceptance utilizes expensive POS hardware to accept multiple payments. However, these devices are expensive because of high certification costs. Instead, merchants don’t have to purchase the costly professional EFT-POS and can directly download the applications on their NFC-compatible devices, which costs less. What’s more, the POS software has a much lower price and even the basic version can be downloaded for free.
2. Easy upgrade
The Software POS solution provides a more flexible method to maintain and upgrade the POS terminals. By using the traditional POS, merchants have to manually upgrade the devices to make them support more payment methods. It’s very complex and costly to upgrade an old POS terminal. In contrast, merchants can upgrade the SoftPOS or add new functions in a wireless method, which can be very convenient and effortless.
3. More functions
The Software POS is a more flexible Point-of-Sale solution and is easy to integrate other functions. The COTS devices can be more compatible with other software. Merchants can easily expand functions like loyalty points, delivery, etc. It helps deliver a seamless customer experience.
No matter from which point of view, the Software POS solution brings merchants a lot of convenience. It allows merchants to deploy SoftPOS effortlessly and accept payments easily in all application scenarios. It fully caters to the trend of contactless payments and accepts multiple modern payments from customers.
Losing POS terminals can bring a catastrophic loss to merchants. What’s worse, the lost equipment is also easy to be used by criminals to collect fees and cause greater losses. By contrast, when using SoftPOS, merchants inform their payment provider of customer service and the customer service operator will enter this information into the Attestation and Monitoring service to block the SoftPOS app on the device.
