MasterCard helps to turn smartphones into POS terminals in Poland
MasterCard has unveiled a pilot project in Poland that enables merchants to use only an NFC-enabled smartphone to accept contactless payments, according to a press release.
MasterCard is working with Elavon, Polskie ePłatności and Mobeewave on the project. Mobeewave earlier partnered with Connect&GO to introduce an Android mobile app that enables merchants to accept a contactless payment.
MasterCard expects to start the pilot this fall and and have it run until summer of 2018. The first stage will involve 200 small and micro businesses from all over Poland, with the number expected to grow to 500.
