SIX Payment Services has announced it is launching the yoximo mobile payment terminal, replacing the widely used xentissimo model.
With the launch of yoximo, SIX is putting all its their trust in the latest mobile communication standards – from the mobile connection (3G) to the security certification (PCI PTS 3.x), with the latter guaranteeing long-term investment protection until 2023.
One of the device’s practical features is that it is the first payment terminal in Switzerland to be able to automatically switch between a mobile and Wi-Fi connection.
A major advantage of the latest model is the new intelligent switching function, which allows the device to guarantee fast payment processes regardless of location by switching between mobile and Wi-Fi connections.
Swiss consumers will soon be able to make payments using yoximo in many taxis, restaurants and retail stores. This has been in development ever since the successful pre-sale campaign started in January 2014. SIX will be sending out the first yoximo terminals to all of its customers today.
