LevelUp, a US mobile payments and loyalty network that uses QR code technology to execute mobile transactions via smartphones, has unveiled that is set to provide its merchants with the ability to push offers to shoppers via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons built into the next version of its POS device.

As a first step, LevelUp is currently providing its 14,000 merchants a LevelUp iBeacon that they can use to notify customers of offers and remind them of upcoming loyalty rewards.
