NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), a global leader in omni-channel solutions, has launched Ring Up by NCR Silver, a mobile point-of-sale (POS) solution designed for the 3.7 million U.S. micro businesses* that need a simple way to manage the sales process and accept payments.
The launch marks NCR’s entrance into the rapidly growing U.S. micro merchant category.
Ring Up by NCR Silver offers a seamless way for businesses to professionally manage a sale and accept chip and swipe payments. It also saves merchants time by helping them set up a product catalog in advance, review total sales, send e-receipts and build marketing databases of opt-in customers.
Payment processing for Ring Up by NCR Silver is powered by Worldpay and includes a mobile reader that wirelessly connects to Android™ or iOS devices via the accompanying mobile app. No headset jack is needed.
Barely larger than a credit card in length, the Ring Up by NCR Silver mobile reader fits conveniently in a pocket or can be attached to an included lanyard for easy access on the go.
Thanks to Worldpay, U.S. based merchants will not have to go through the hassle of finding a payment processor. The relationship enables merchants to quickly start accepting the payments their customers want.
“We’re excited to continue our relationship with NCR and help micro businesses navigate an increasingly complex payments landscape,” said Jon Pollock, Chief Product Officer, Worldpay US. “With Worldpay's processing power, these businesses can now offer customers a seamless payments experience that might have been previously out of reach.”
Ring Up by NCR Silver also offers privacy benefits differentiating it from competitive solutions, and offers customers live U.S.-based 24/7 service via chat, email, phone and text. In addition, they save time and money by enjoying access to payment data in near real time, eliminating costly manual entry errors and always receiving simple and transparent pricing. NCR and Worldpay’s longstanding relationship makes pricing competitive and includes a low processing and subscription rate.
“With the addition of Ring Up by NCR Silver, we can now support businesses through every phase, from startup to franchise,” said Chris Poelma, President and GM of NCR Silver. “Ring Up by NCR Silver is the stepping stone for micro merchants or service providers looking for a reliable technology partner to grow with. Once these businesses are ready to expand, NCR Silver will be there to help.”
