Point-of-sale payment provider payworks has released a white-label software development kit (SDK) that outside parties can use to develop mobile point of sale services.
The software includes a merchant-facing mobile application with a chip-and-PIN card reader, a Web-based merchant dashboard and automated merchant onboarding and card reader processes.
The SDK allows integration of the PIN readers into merchant apps such as those used for tablet-based cashier systems and mobile taxi apps.
German acquirer ConCardis will be the first provider to offer the SDK through its OptiPay product for merchant service providers in retail, gastronomy and hospitality industries. Acquirers and independent sales organizations can use to SDK to quickly launch a branded mobile point of sale product, the Munich-based payworks said in a press release. Payworks has been adding technology as it plots an expansion across Europe.
“It is exciting to see mPOS solutions in more and more integrated settings where traditional terminals would have been used previously,” Christian Deger, co-founder and CEO of payworks, said in the release. “Opening up our mPOS Pay product for integrators allows our clients to be part of this big movement with minimum effort.”
