Tuesday 19 September 2023 15:14 CET | News

Intesa Sanpaolo and Nexi have launched SoftPOS in Italy, allowing merchants to use their smartphones to accept payments from customers using contactless cards and digital wallets.

SoftPOS is an app that the merchant can associate with a device in a few simple and secure steps. The app can also send digital receipts directly to the customer. The new app developed by Nexi will be available from September 19, 2023, onwards as a preview for Intesa Sanpaolo customers. Moreover, SoftPOS will initially be available for smartphones and tablets running the Android operating system.

An app for mobile payments 

SoftPOS can be used as the main or an additional point-of-sale. This solution can be a good fit for handling rush hours in shops, deliveries or wherever there is a need to accept mobile payments. For those who are already customers, the solution can also be configured as a support POS, which can be activated directly from the Nexi Business portal.

The companies state that SoftPOS is an ideal solution for mobile businesses, freelancers, and businesses offering home delivery. In addition to digitising receipts, it enables the merchant to accept digital payments securely on a device that is used often. Moreover, the use of a smartphone or tablet also allows the merchant to have an additional checkout point alongside their main one. This could help minimise wait times and queues for payments, thereby leaving more time for other important aspects of the business and purchasing process.
