Mobile Point of Sale

The Mobile Point of Sale program can facilitate technology providers and other business partners (merchants, acquirers, financial institutions) to provide increased points of acceptance, as well as offering more payment options for consumers.

What is Mobile Point of Sale?

Mobile Point of Sale enables smartphones, tablets and dedicated wireless devices to accept payments without the need for a full payment terminal. Visa Ready provides standards for two types of solutions: traditional mPOS and QR code. Both are secure, convenient and can help increase revenue. When interested, the Visa Ready team can help set up, review and get your solution certified.

Traditional mPOS

Offer the flexibility of accepting contactless/magnetic stripe/chip payments through an application on a wireless device.

QR code

Facilitate payments by letting merchants present a QR code for consumers to scan.
