In recent years, the evolution of technology has led to many innovations in the payments industry. In a world that thrives on convenience and mobility, the traditional point-of-sale (POS) terminals can often feel outdated and restrictive.

Among the emerging solutions, the term "SoftPOS" promises a new era of flexibility and security in electronic payments


Imagine transforming your smartphone into an advanced payment terminal at the touch of a button. Welcome to the world of SoftPOS – a revolutionary concept that is reshaping the payments industry. This article will explore what SoftPOS is, how it works, and what benefits it offers.

What is SoftPOS?

SoftPOS or "Software Point of Sale” turns any mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet, into a fully functional payment terminal. This makes accepting credit or debit card payments possible without additional hardware, such as traditional physical POS. And the Toonie app is at the forefront of this technology, offering a seamless, hardware-free contactless payment solution.

How it Works

The operation of Toonie SoftPOS is simple and effective. The app will act as a payment terminal by downloading Toonie on your smartphone. Using Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, the SoftPOS communicates with the customer's payment card, enabling secure data transfer for transaction authorisation.

Advantages of Toonie SoftPOS

1. Cost efficient: Eliminating the need of additional terminals significantly reduces costs. Using Toonie SoftPOS will make adoption more affordable.


2. Flexibility: Toonie SoftPOS offers greater flexibility, enabling you to accept payments wherever you are without being tied to a fixed location.


3. Agility in Transactions: Transactions take place in real-time, speeding up the payment process and improving the overall customer experience.


4. Security: SoftPOS adopts advanced security protocols to protect sensitive information during the transaction. In addition, multi-level authentication helps prevent fraud.


An additional benefit of SoftPOS is its ability to work alongside traditional terminals. This means you can have an extra payment option without the need of additional equipment. This, in turn, reduces queues, speeds up transactions, and enhances the overall customer experience. In today's fast-paced world, a seamless and efficient payment process is crucial, and it is not just an advantage – it’s a necessity!

Implementations and Global Acceptance

SoftPOS is gaining popularity worldwide, with many companies and financial service providers embracing this technology. Businesses increasingly use apps and SoftPOS for their payment needs.

A recent study from Juniper Research highlights this trend, forecasting 61 Million SoftPOS smartphone users are projected by 2028, growing 683% from 2023.
