SoftPOS: Enabling Digital Payments using an App

India is witnessing tremendous growth in the digital payments sphere. The launch of UPI, contactless cards, wallets, and more have enabled customers to transact cashless while bringing new merchants into the digital fold. The volume of digital payments in India has increased by 33% Year-on-Year (YoY) during FY 2021-2022 and a total of 7,422 crore digital transactions were recorded during this period.*

The digital payment revolution has not just changed the way people transact but has also furthered the cause of financial inclusion. As a result, the usage of digital payment modes in the country has grown significantly. This is largely driven by increased penetration of smartphones and the growth of internet. With the passage of time, consumer behaviour has also transformed.

The past decade has seen Point of Sale (POS) solutions gain momentum. A POS system is one of the most effective and efficient ways of propelling a business. From Traditional POS, Mobile POS, Integrated POS, and now SoftPOS– this technology has evolved over the years, and how.
