Bitcoin payment integration with pos system
Since October 2013, payment with bitcoins is fully integrated within the payment section of Nuvopos POS (point-of-sale) system. Payments with bitcoins is a new form of mobile payments where the guest pays the bill with his bitcoin wallet on his smartphone.
How does it work
If the guest wants to pay a bill with bitcoins than the Nuvopos program ensures that the check-amount will be converted to the actual bitcoin-value. For this the system will create a QR-code based upon the bitcoin-value of the check plus the number of the bitcoin wallet of the entrepreneur. This QR code will be displayed on the pos-screen and needed to be scanned by the smartphone of the guest. With sufficient balance on the guests wallet, the bitcoin amount will be to transferred the bitcoin wallet of the entrepreneur.
Trendwatcher Vincent Everts
To experience how a bitcoin transaction works in real, trendwatcher Vincent Everts and bitcoin-expert Rutger van Zuidam visited ‘The Concert House’ in Groningen.
The Concert House is a contemporary and modern grand café. Almost immediately after the introduction of the bitcoin payment solution within the Nuvopos pos system, they decided to make use of this mobile payment functionality.
