Zoop POS is here!
The full-fledged Point of Sale (POS) system that works with iPad or Android tablets (desktop soon), and allows small businesses to process payments, manage inventory, and much more.
The Zoop POS was launched during the TechCrunch Disrupt 2012 in San Francisco. It gives businesses the tools to handle all the tasks they typically would with a traditional cash register. And better yet, it’s FREE!
Gotta love the free ultra-portable and highly secure Zoop mobile credit card reader with integrated PIN-pad.
It allows anyone with virtually any mobile device to take chip-and-PIN and magnetic stripe cards, as well as NFC contactless payments (touch-to-pay) placed with credit cards or smartphones.
Here’s a special sneak peek of what’s to come. The Zoop administrative dashboard is a sleek, beautiful, and easy to use web app. Works swiftly!
You can sign-up online for free, by providing a few pieces of information. When approved, you will get access to this web console. You can use it to link your bank account, keep track of your sales, payments and deposits, manage inventory, connect to customers through social networks, manage custom rewards program to recognize and reward your awesome customers, and much more.
Hope you enjoy!
Zoop’s new wireless credit card reader is coming out soon.
Today, the 3D printer machine made the cut of the new reader mount and iPhone case. The swipe guide and cell phone mounting bracket will be made, and all of the bosses / screw mounts will be added so that this can be assembled nicely. Next, we will concentrate on the PCB, embedded software, and will be good to go!
This all-in-one mobile credit card reader works with magnetic stripe cards, EMV chip & pin, and contactless / NFC based payments. And, even better, it’s free!
A sneak peek of our new iPhone app.
At Zoop, we love Paper prototyping. It is probably the best tool we have to design great user experiences. It allows you to involve users early in the design process, and you can quickly incorporate direct feedback into a design.
Recently, we have been working on the design for the rewards tool of our mobile app, and we have been extensively using Paper prototypes.
The result is a streamlined tool that’s very easy to use. You can manage custom rewards program to recognize and reward best customers. By scanning the QR code or taping the NFC proximity reward card (Zoop Card), the application will automatically make sure the products that the customer has purchased have reward points associated to them, so you will see any rewards that are available.
Once scanned the QR code or read the punch card, the app will list the available rewards and progress. To redeem the reward, you can ask the customer which one he/she wants to use, if any. The reward will be applied at checkout as a discount.
