InComm has announced the launch of Cashtie™ Cloud Match Service, an API that enables loyalty programme, mobile wallet and digital coupon providers to offer their capabilities to InComm’s retail network without lengthy integration or new hardware to install at a retailer’s point-of-sale.
InComm’s Cashtie Cloud Match Service enables providers and retailers to seamlessly manage and process mobile barcode transactions without any changes to the POS system.
To start using the Cloud Match Service, sign up for the Cashtie API. This will enable them to create an InComm-enabled barcode then you can use this barcode as a payment, loyalty or coupon transaction. The barcode can then leverage InComm’s existing integrations with retailers to enable the transaction at the POS.
“Cashtie Cloud Match provides a solution that works today to enable retailers and emerging payment and loyalty providers to transact,” said Thomas Cornelius, senior vice president, InComm. “While other options are available, they require changes to the cash register or the installation of expensive new equipment, so for the first time partners and retailers leveraging Cashtie’s Cloud Match solution can offer new payment, coupon and loyalty solutions that their customers demand today, while the hardware and software upgrade cycle of retailers may still be years out.”
