SumUp launches all-in-one register & contactless card reader
LONDON – OCTOBER 20, 2016 – SumUp, the leading mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) company, today introduces the next evolution of POS registers with its new product “Air Register”. The offer allows POS software providers to extend their hardware portfolio with an all-in-one hardware solution, including SumUp’s new NFC card terminal.
SumUp Air Register includes:
• New NFC card reader with glass surface and capacitive key pad to accept chip, magnetic stripe cards and contactless payments, incl. Apple Pay and Android Pay.
• iPad mini to use with any POS register software integrated with the SumUp payments platform (or the SumUp app).
• Standard size thermal receipt printer.
• Wooden oak case made from sustainable forestry.
The Air Register has been designed and built by SumUp and works smoothly with SumUp’s existing EMV card terminals, payment processing platform and risk and anti-fraud system. By integrating with the SumUp open platform, POS software providers can offer a smooth payment acceptance experience in their native or mobile browser-based apps, without having to go through the trouble of certifying with card schemes or acquirers and maintaining PCI compliance. With a single integration that takes just a few hours, software providers can take payments in 15 countries on three continents.
Daniel Klein, CEO of SumUp, comments: “Over the last year, we have experienced huge demand from tablet-based cash register providers to be able to connect their apps with our open payments platform. At the same time we have identified a lack of a beautiful, all-in-one POS hardware piece. With the launch of Air Register we are now filling this gap and are enabling our partners to offer their apps in a stunning package.”
The company will present the new products at Money20/20 in Las Vegas from October 23-26, 2016.
SumUp is a leading financial technology company that is set to become the first ever global card acceptance brand. The company enables businesses to accept card payments at the Point-of-Sale or on the go in a simple, secure and cost-effective way. SumUp is the only company to offer an end-to-end EMV card acceptance solution built on proprietary hardware and mobile apps. This unique offering enabled SumUp to rapidly expand into 15 markets, including the U.S., Brazil and Germany, making it the mPOS company with the largest global footprint. The company has gone on to develop a full suite of SDKs and APIs for third parties to integrate card payments into their mobile apps. SumUp has been backed by renowned investors, including Groupon, BBVA Ventures, Holtzbrinck Ventures and American Express. In April 2016 SumUp has merged with the mPOS company payleven to create the global leader in mobile payment.
