Mobile POS (mPOS) terminals are specialized integrated mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) that function as electronic point of sale terminals. These specialized mobile devices can also be transformed into payment terminals through use of sleeves or dongles. Equipped with capabilities such as RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), Wi-Fi, smart card, and VoIP (Voice Internet Protocol), mobile POS terminals are additionally used to manage inventory/assets, send and receive invoices, send digitize notes, and capture signatures at counters. These capabilities allow mPOS terminals to accept payments even remotely through wireless applications. Advancements in payment technologies coupled with the move towards EMV (Europay, MasterCard, Visa) chip card payment is expected to fuel market momentum.
