In today’s fast-paced, technology-driven world, businesses must adapt to keep up with evolving consumer demands and technological advancements. One of the essential tools for modern commerce is the Point of Sale (POS) system.

A POS terminal is an electronic device used by businesses to process card payments at retail locations. It is a combination of hardware and software that enables transactions by reading payment cards, capturing payment details, and completing sales.

Apirone has developed its own POS terminal that helps merchants accept payments in cryptocurrencies. This integration acts as a bridge between the POS system and the blockchain network. Here are some benefits of this integration:

  1. Expanded payment options: By accepting cryptocurrency, businesses broaden their customer base. This inclusivity can drive more sales and increase customer satisfaction.

  2. Lower transaction fees: Cryptocurrency transactions incur lower fees compared to traditional credit card processing fees. This can result in significant cost savings for businesses.

  3. Fast and secure transactions: Cryptocurrency payments are processed on the blockchain, which ensures secure and transparent transactions. Additionally, these transactions can be faster than traditional payment methods.

  4. Reduced fraud risk: The decentralized nature of blockchain technology makes it difficult for fraudulent activities to occur. This provides an added layer of security for both businesses and customers.

  5. No chargebacks: Unlike credit card payments, cryptocurrency transactions are irreversible. This eliminates the risk of chargebacks, which can be a costly and time-consuming issue for merchants.

The POS terminal implies seamless integration with the Apirone payment gateway. The only thing one should do first is create an account in the Apirone system. Then one needs to log in at the POS terminal page using the account ID and transfer key given during the registration. In the profile a merchant chooses a sum in any currency, a fiat one and a cryptocurrency, for example, USD and BTC. So, the invoice is ready to send via QR code or by address.

All the payment operations are to be monitored in the account with a user-friendly interface. Apirone provides a flexible fee policy, mass payouts, and several popular cryptocurrencies, including Tron and USDT. These currencies ideally fit POS terminal integration since transactions arrive instantly (unlike Bitcoin), which is an advantage for offline shops.
