WisePOS’s list of sophisticated features includes:
- Magstripe, EMV chip & pin , chip & sign and NFC contactless readers, all-in-one unit

“WisePOS provides mobile merchants and retailers a simpler, more reliable, more secure and optimally versatile mPOS device to accept payments anytime, anywhere, “said Ben Lo, Co-Founder & Chief Technology Officer of BBPOS. “ We are thrilled to bring this kind of revolutionary performance to customers, with demand at launch from an incredible roster of merchants who have managed payment acceptance and grown their businesses with help from BBPOS.”
WisePOS is designed to appeal to a substantial segment of the mobile merchant and retailer sector, and the device will optimize many services, including direct sales and line-busting initiatives that offer customers added convenience. The all-in-one functionality is perfect for professions that demand a robust and versatile mobile payment, communication and data management solution, including insurance agents, logistic team, delivery workers, auditors, couriers and more. Additionally, the Android platform allows superior flexibility to develop customized applications and support the mPOS platform.
WisePOS complies with PCI, EMV L1 and L2, and EMV Contactless requirements. EMV migration is still underway in the United States, with varying degrees of adoption among mobile merchants and retailers, and the emergence of Apple Pay, MasterCard PayPass and VISA payWave standards adds an additional level of complexity. By combining magstripe, EMV and NFC capability in a single device, WisePOS is able to meet customers’ expectation at all points along the transition and provide the most versatile mobile payment solution available.
