PIN on glass
Merchants around the world have long-relied on Point-of-Sale (POS) terminals with sophisticated hardware to protect card-based transactions. In 2016 alone, credit, debit and pre-paid card purchases accounted for over $257 billion globally.
Yet many small businesses simply can’t afford these expensive POS terminals and opt for cash or check instead. In fact, it’s estimated that refusing cards costs U.S-based small businesses $100 billion in sales each year.
But change is coming
New regulations in point-of-sale card acceptance will transform the way merchants can transact. Customers will soon enter their PIN directly onto a merchant’s consumer-grade phone or tablet; no need for specialized POS hardware, only the mobile device the merchant already own. It’s called “PIN on glass”, and it could unlock new card-based sales for merchants, banks and payment networks while liberating small businesses around the globe.
