Balazs has identified the right difference between PoS need and payment need of a merchant. Many companies are wasting their investors' money in devising a mobile based solution, which merges PoS and Payment needs. Hardware for PoS is usually a computer, whch is also used for other purposes like inventory management, vendor management, payroll processing while mobile based payment system ask for a different device. This is where the confusion starts...and we see foolish solutions like mPoS.

Can we have a payment mobile based payment mechanism that does not need any hardware or does not interfere with hardware need for PoS...and beats MDR far below what credit card companies may offer.

I just wish banks wake up to the need of the hour...
