Revel Systems, an iPad POS provider, has added Bitcoin integration to its platform. Now, users of the Revel POS can accept bitcoins as payment, giving their customers even more ways to pay.
According to a news release, Revel is currently the only major POS platform that has added Bitcoin as a payment option for enterprise and small businesses.
"Digital currency is the wave of the future," said Chris Ciabarra, Revel Systems CTO and co-founder." As the standard in point-of-sale, we like to provide our customers with more ways to take advantage of consumer payment trends and supply a platform in which to take them, and that includes configuring our system to accept Bitcoin."
How it works
Revel is working with Bitcoin wallet provider Coinbase to provide a hardware/software solution that allows users to seamlessly accept Bitcoin into the current Revel iPad POS. The Revel app has already been submitted to the Android store, and an iOS app has been submitted to the Apple app store.
When a customer is paying with Bitcoin, a QR code will pop up on the POS screen of the Revel iPad POS. A customer will then scan this QR code with their smartphone using a Bitcoin wallet app, which completes the transaction.
