Mobile Till app makes life easier for small retailers

Mobile Till app makes life easier for small retailers


Small business owners can now turn their iPad or even iPhone into a mobile cash register, thanks to the launch of a new app.

Till2Go will mean shops and stalls can ditch their clunky cash registers and switch to a compact and lightweight till, with no capital outlay.

The app has just been launched by mobile payments provider Smartpay. General Manager Product and Marketing, Mark Unwin, says it will make life easier for many small retailers as it will free up space and give them more functions than their tills.

“Till2Go means operators no longer have to keep manual sales records – it’s all recorded by the app so you can get real time sales information at the tap of a button.”

“It’s also easy. Changing the till setup is as intuitive as any Apple app and no programming manual is required.”

The app is also capable of issuing email receipts so they don’t have to be hand-written. This allows easy capture of customer information and a much better way to have a conversation with the customer later on.

Till2Go can be linked to Smartpay EFTPOS which Mr Unwin expects many businesses will find attractive. “Being able to accept card payments can increase your customer numbers and sales opportunities, and of course you don’t have to be carrying so much cash.”

The app is aimed at operators such as market stalls, coffee trucks, pop-up shops, school fundraising events and tradeshow booths.

Till2Go can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store.

Smartpay is the largest New Zealand owned and operated EFTPOS provider and it works to bring the latest in EFTPOS and payments technology to its customers in New Zealand and Australia.
