Canadian e-commerce company Shopify is launching its own payment card reader in the UK, a development that will make it easier than ever for shops to run all of their business operations using Shopify's services.
This payment card reader accepts Visa, MasterCard, Android Pay and Apple Pay transactions by virtue of the Shopify Payments format, and it connects wirelessly to smartphones and tablets in order to allow flexile use. The card reader works in conjunction with Shopify's payment app software in seamless fashion. The hardware can be pre-ordered with a rapid charging system and a retail stand, which work to ensure that the machine never runs out of juice during busy periods.
This payment card reader promises to streamline point-of-sale transactions in every kind of commerce environment ranging from flagship stores to festival kiosks, and allows store-owners to better link their online and brick-and-mortar offerings.
