We developed a mobile app that enables businesses and shopkeepers to accept payment directly from the app without the need of the POS terminal.
NFC based Payment Application for Businesses and Retail Stores
Investing in a POS terminal hardware and systems has a lot of operational and preliminary expenses and the software is designed as stand-alone for the hardware device. This creates a lot of troubles and technical dependency for the businesses and shopkeepers who wish to receive digital payment from their customers.
Thus, to find a feasible solution, client came to us with a requirement of Mobile Application that replaces POS with mobile application that facilitates payment and receipts. The app allows users to receive payment instantly from their customers with NFC reader technology for scanning cards and also generates automated receipts on completion of transaction.
Purpose Behind The App
The client had a lot of experience in the Australian Retail Business and was aware of the changes in the Brick and Mortar stores and businesses as they attempted towards digital transformation. The client noticed that POS terminal systems were expensive and solely dependent on their hardware in which the system was embedded. Thus, client required a convenient and affordable replacement of POS systems.
The purpose of the mobile app is to create a payment portal that can reads debit/credit cards via NFC reader and helps businesses in accepting payments right from the mobile application without the need of a POS terminal or any other hardware device.
Thus, the users could download the application on both the App Store and the Play Store and use the app to receive hassle free payments from their customers. The app is designed for the Australian market and it also facilitates invoice with appropriate tax calculations.
