epay SoftPOS is a revolutionary solution that allows merchants to accept contactless payments through an app on an Android smartphone, tablet, or other handheld device.

epay SoftPOS solution requires compatible devices to function properly. It is important to ensure that the SoftPOS software is compatible with the operating system and hardware specifications of the intended devices.

epay SoftPOS only supports Android devices. The Android device must contain an Android version supported by Android with updates. Android version 10 or higher is required for proper functionality of SoftPOS.

Android OS must be an official Android OS, incl. Google Mobile (SafetyNet) services, neither CustomROMs nor rooted devices are supported.

The Android device needs to have an integrated NFC interface.​

Enterprise Devices must be verified. Depending on the status of the handheld provider, hardware manufacturer, permission from Visa/Mastercard must be available for verification.​

Installation of the SoftPOS app is possible via Google Play Store and also via own app stores (e.g., with Enterprise devices).

Technical integration

The payment initiation app “app2pay” is required in stand-alone operation to trigger the entry of the amount. Triggering a transaction in app2pay automatically starts the PhonePOS app in the background. The app2pay functions can also be replaced by a cash register app, which must be integrated with the PhonePOS app via the mAPI interface.
