ZipZap, the mobile POS (mPOS) solution from Paycorp, has partnered with Microsoft Mobile to offer businesses and retailers a mobile solution that allows them to accept payments from customers on-the-go.

Paycorp said that ZipZap’s mobile PoS together with a Lumia smartphone will allow merchants accept all card payments, issue e-receipts via SMS or email, and view a detailed transaction history via the app or the online merchant portal.

The ZipZap mPOS app accepts credit and debit card payments via Bluetooth or USB and connects to a separate PIN pad.

The safe and secure solution allows merchants to take instant card payments from clients instead of cash or EFTs.

The ZipZap app is available to download for free on all mobile platforms, while its mPOS solution is only compatible with Windows Phone.

Under the partnership, Paycorp will offer two 18-month rent-to-own contracts for the ZiZap.

The first package comprises a ZipZap card reader, a Lumia 535 smartphone and 1GB of data per month for ZAR380 per month, while the second also includes a Mecer Express A801 tablet for ZAR513 per month for 18 months.

Paycorp CEO of EFTPOS, the point-of-sale (POS) subsidiary Wayne Abramson said: "It immediately capitalises on smart technologies to make it possible for a wide range of businesses from small retailers to businesses on-the-move to accept immediate payment for goods and services. Our partnership with Microsoft creates an even more powerful mobile business solution for more merchants."

Microsoft Mobile B2B lead Veran Maharaj said: "Microsoft is committed to reinventing productivity and business process, and this extends to the important collaborations embarked on with Business-to-Business partners, like Paycorp.

"Together with Paycorp, we are able to offer businesses a mobile payment solution that is not only convenient, but also safe and reliable, further extending our mission of enabling productivity anywhere and anytime."
