At Mobile World CongressMasterCard has announced the availability of a global list of solutions practices for Mobile POS. With the evolution and growing penetration of mobile and connected devices, there has been a surge of innovation in mobile point-of-sale (MPOS) technology.

Small businesses and retailers that have never accepted card payments and previously operated on a cash- and invoice-only basis are turning to mobile point-of-sale (MPOS) solutions to expand their customer base and sales. Established retailers are also adopting MPOS solutions to engage customers in-aisle and enhance the retail and payment experience. MasterCard introduced the MasterCard Mobile POS Program to provide guidance to Mobile POS solution providers and promote simple and secure transactions when consumers use their debit, credit and prepaid cards to pay merchants that use these devices.

Currently, the following Mobile POS solutions providers have successfully completed the registration and self-certification process for their solutions: Corduro, Ezetap, Elavon, Handpoint, Itos, iVeri, iZettle, JSC Smartfin (2Can), Miura Systems, NetSecure Payments (Kudos), Payworks, ROAM, SCCP (Swiff), Soft Space, Square and Thyron Systems.

All Mobile POS solution providers currently not registered in the program are invited to register and self-certify their solution against MasterCard’s best practices.

Mung Ki Woo, Group Executive, Mobile, MasterCard Worldwide said: “Mobile devices are rapidly transforming the point of sale experience, both for consumers and merchants, and the growth of this program demonstrates our long-term vision to provide technology and tools that support the transition of every mobile phone into a shopping device.”
