The new Verifone e280 mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) solution looks like a smartphone and it is just as portable. However for retailers, it means being able to accept payments in different locations throughout the store as well as outside of it.
At just 4.5″ long and 2.5″ wide, the e280 has a 3.5″ color touchscreen for capturing the signature of your customers and on-screen interaction for secure PIN entry. Connectivity includes WiFi, Bluetooth BLE and USB-C so it can communicate with other devices and peripherals.
Small retailers can expect to see less and less foot traffic coming through their doors if their checkout process is not optimized. This is because as consumers shop more and more online, they expect the same level of efficiency when they are in a brick-and-mortar outlet.
The good news is there are solutions in the marketplace small businesses can use to make checkouts as painless as possible for their customers.
In a press release announcing the new device, Glen Robson, executive vice president and Global Head of Solutions for Verifone, explained, “Retail is greatly influenced by consumer behaviors and experience, and merchants are looking for technology that is adaptable to changing consumer expectations while complying with complex security standards.”
