No primary category set

Shopify have introduced their contactless payments hardware to Canadian retailers using Shopify POS a service currently free to users until 31st of October.

The Tap & Chip Card Reader payments hardware device is efficient and uses the “tap” payment options like credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, and Google Pay. The device has also been updated to support contactless Interac Flash. The beauty of this device is the way business owners and staff can provide mobile checkout experiences wherever it is preferred, whether in-store or outside meaning the social distancing measures can be met through flexible and safe payment options. New innovative payment technology will need to be accessible in all areas of the world as we start re-emerging into the retail sector.

“We want to help local businesses in Canada to become more resilient, and we know technology can help. Shopify POS and our Tap & Chip Reader allows retailers to re-open their doors while prioritizing safety; with contactless payments, curbside pickup and local delivery. We are empowering Canadian retailers to unify their online and offline businesses in one place, so they can continue making sales whether consumers are in-store or at home.”
– Ian Black, Director of Retail, Shopify.

The payments device is also integrated with Shopify Payments, meaning merchants can easily track and manage their online and in-store financials in one place and heighten the features already accessible within the Shopify POS system.

“As a busy entrepreneur and chocolate maker, having a centralized and integrated hub for all of my business transactions online and in-store is invaluable. The Shopify Tap & Chip Card Reader could not have come at a better time. We can now accept payments anywhere in the store or curbside to avoid line ups. It also lets us give our customers more options to pay including Interac debit, credit or their mobile wallet, which is a must-have. I am so grateful that Shopify is prioritizing solving my biggest pain points right now to help keep my business going,”
– Mathieu McFadden, General Manager, ChocoSol
