SmartPesa launches Southeast Asia’s first Android POS solution

Merchants benefit from single payments terminal for card and wallet checkouts


SmartPesa (Fintech DB Profile) announced today the launch of its Android POS solution in Southeast Asia.

With the fragmentation of point-of-sale (POS) solutions, many merchants are faced with the need to invest in multiple payment technologies.

SmartPesa’s Android POS solution focuses on the merchant experience by simultaneously catering to card and wallet checkout. Android POS allows for a richer merchant experience and streamlined updates to user interface. The modern payment acceptance supports card payment schemes including VISA, MasterCard, UnionPay and JCB debit and credit cards, as well as mobile wallets including OVO wallet.

Beyond payments, the new Android POS ecosystem also brings value-added services and operational efficiency to merchants:
Merchants can quickly process card and QR payment services
– Access to rich loyalty schemes for point reward, coupons, cashbacks and redemption
– Support for cash register (ECR), Cloud point-of-sales, and pay-at-table solutions
– Digital receipt management with full searchable transaction history
– Streamlined reconciliation for business owners

SmartPesa operates its merchant acquiring solutions in Indonesia in conjunction with Visionet in the brand-name Mobey, a PCI-DSS compliant bank grade payment service. Mobey empowers the merchant to confidently accept digital payments, anytime access to their full transaction history, drill down into always available receipts, and provide a better customer payment experience. Cloud point-of-sales including MetaPOS, and others in the pipeline, run directly on Android POS for retail inventory and checkout.

“We are excited to cooperate with SmartPesa who has taken the lead to bring our modern A920 terminal to Indonesia, and simplified the deployment across the region,”,” said Eric Li, regional sales director of Asia Pacific at PAX “In combination with the ecosystem and value-added services powered by SmartPesa’s technology, our Android A920 gives merchants in Indonesia a cost-effective and efficient solution designed to meet their payment needs.”

“With the Android POS ecosystem providing new functions and management capabilities, not only do we give merchants and customers a frictionless payments experience, but we have an enormous wealth of data from the usage of the system. This streamlines reconciliations and dispute resolution by giving merchants greater transparency on their digital acceptance, both on card and QR payments” said Barry Levett (Fintech DB Profile, Co-founder and CEO of SmartPesa.
