PayPal Launches Competitor To Square’s Mobile Payment Solution
The next major POS development includes a triangle-shaped reader designed by Yves Behar of Fuseproject.
PayPal has unveiled a new payments solution for small businesses called PayPal Here. The triangle-shaped mobile credit card reader (designed by Yves Behar from Fuseproject) and accompanying merchant app allow smartphones to act as POS devices. Payments can be accepted by swiping credit and debit cards with the fully encrypted thumb-sized card reader, or cards and checks can be scanned and processed using the phone’s camera. Merchants can also track receipts and issue invoices directly from the app.
