Phos partners with NatWest to deliver Android SoftPoS in the UK
By Gloria Methri
Phos by Ingenico has partnered with NatWest to launch its Tap to Pay solution for payments service Tyl by NatWest on Android devices.
NatWest, which serves 19 million customers, launched its Tap-to-Pay solution for a small cohort of Tyl by NatWest merchant customers, with plans to roll out a full launch later this year.
The new Android solution will allow businesses to offer quick and seamless payments to their customers. Phos’ Tap to Pay solution uses its innovative SoftPoS technology to help merchants securely accept transactions using a mobile device, including debit and credit card payments as well as digital wallet transactions.
This comes at minimal cost to merchants who can make use of the existing hardware they already own, rather than having to invest in costly traditional payment terminals. By bringing this solution to Android devices, Tyl by NatWest will also enable customers to accept card payments in a secure and contactless fashion on any NFC-enabled Android smartphone or tablet.
Mike Elliff, CEO of Tyl by NatWest, said, “Our new Tap to Pay solution will give customers the flexibility to accept in-person payments on mobile, anytime, and anywhere. We want to help business owners use the power of technology to help them boost sales, simplify their payment processes, and give their customers the very best experience. In Phos, we selected a partner that demonstrated the flexibility to work with Tyl and help us deliver a market-leading Tap to Pay solution that best meets the needs of our merchant customers.”
Brad Hyett, CEO of Phos by Ingenico, added: “Tyl by NatWest’s new Tap to Pay to offer is a huge endorsement of our solution and the growing market potential for SoftPoS technology. We look forward to assisting them in deploying a solution to their customers nationwide and helping their merchants keep pace with growing customer demand for fast, simple, and contactless ways to pay.”
