TapBase is releasing mobile apps for its payments, loyalty and rewards platform

Releasing new apps

TapBase is releasing TapPay and TapWallet mobile applications for the iPhone as elements of its Tap mobile payments, loyalty and rewards platform (view press release). The TapPay app enables merchants to use the barcode scanner to manage a mobile database of products and services. Items can be added to a mobile shopping cart where discounts, charges or tips can be applied. Credit or debit cards can be swiped using a magnetic-stripe reader, or a bill can be sent to a customer’s smartphone. The TapWallet app allows consumers to carry payment card information, loyalty and membership cards. To make a payment, the user selects a payment card, signs the transaction on their phone and authorises payment. The merchant is notified that the transaction is complete, and is given a copy of the receipt.

TapBase plans to offer Android versions of the apps and further components of its platform are planned for Q4 including the option for merchants to issue their own virtual pre-paid and gift cards using QR and NFC technology. In addition, merchants will be able to offer rewards to customers in the form of TapPoints, a Tap Platform virtual currency.
