This latest generation WisePOS, occupying a class by itself, is an all-in-one device, including full Android smartphone functionality – there is no need for installation, and no need for additional plug-in device to conduce mPOS transactions. It is easy to use with multiple connectivity options including WiFi, Bluetooth and GPRS.

WisePOS’s list of sophisticated features includes:

  • Magstripe, EMV chip & pin , chip & sign and NFC contactless readers, all-in-one unit
  • Full Android smartphone functionality
  • 4-inch WVGA display
  • Secure PIN pad
  • Optional barcode scanner
  • SDK for Android development
  • Remote firmware update and encryption key injection

“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.

BBPOS is preferred worldwide by merchants, retailers and organizations for end-to-end mPOS devices and mobile payment acceptance innovations. BBPOS has earned a reputation for delivering solutions that leverage best-in-class technology with leading reliability and optimal convenience. WisePOS is ready to ship in Q3 2015 and a version with integrated printer will be available in 2016. The company will soon announce pricing and availability.
