AirPOS and PayPal Here team up to bring mobile payment processing capability to UK retailers of all sizes, out of the box.
PayPal Here will launch at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on 25th - 28th of February 2013. Excitingly AirPOS will be delivering a presentation on the subject of Mobile Payments and Retail on the main developers stage on Thursday 28th at 11am and announcing the partnership.
Mobile payment in the UK has been lagging behind its US cousins for quite a while. In the US solutions like Square have shaken the payment processing industry to its core, providing retailers and consumers alike with a simple way to pay. PayPal Here is the next level, with the infrastructure and expertise of PayPal providing a market ready product from one of the world’s largest payment companies.
“At Paypal, we spend a huge amount of time talking and listening to small businesses. They are the core of Paypal's business and they've told us that they want a simple, secure way to take card payments anytime and anywhere they trade," said David Marcus, president of Paypal.
PayPal Here is the UK solution we've collectively been waiting for. It's an elegant, simple, pocket-sized device and an app. Martin Neill, CEO of AirPOS believes that “for us at AirPOS, PayPal Here is the final piece of our ecosystem for retailers. Cloud ePOS, automated inventory control. multi-channel e-commerce capability and now payments are all part of our retailer platform.”
He continued “The UK ePOS industry has seen epic disruption is the last couple of years with the rise of cloud computing changing how retailers manage their shops and sales. The one part sorely missing has been a payment processor that matches up, with new thinking and a simpler approach to how payments can be performed. Thankfully PayPal Here is exactly what the market needed. A modern payment device for modern retailers, from one of the world’s largest payment providers. That’s payments sorted and in the next few months we can start thinking about what comes next.”
