Accepting mobile card payments

The card reader for smartphones and tablets brings mobility and security to your business.

Until now, checkout systems have been associated with relatively high costs for merchants. However, mobile card payments via smartphone and tablet offer benefits for businesses of all sizes, representing a secure, cost-efficient alternative, as you can accept card payments via credit card and debit/Maestro card, as well as alternative payment methods such as Alipay.

The mobile card payment system consists of a mobile card reader and an additional free app. The card reader is connected to a smartphone or tablet, launched via the app, and can then be immediately used for mobile card payments. The hardware and software components are white label-compatible, can have a customised design and can be adapted to individual needs in terms of functionality, such as through supplementary applications.

You can use the mobile card payment system on the following devices:

  • iPhones and iPads running iOS
  • Smartphones and tablets running Android


Greater customer convenience thanks to the mobile card reader for debit and credit cards – including contactless

Combine the security of mobile payments with the convenience of cashless payment methods, and start offering your customers multiple forms of payment while shopping, including via credit card or debit/Maestro card, and contactless via NFC.
