Star’s New mPOP – The Revolution of mPOS is Coming!

Posted October 7, 2015

In today’s competitive economy, retailers are often seeking solutions to reduce check-out lines and provide customers a more efficient shopping experience. As a result, retailers want a flexible peripheral that can be used as a POS system and/or mobile-based solution. Star’s dedication to researching and enhancing the customer experience at the point of sale represents their commitment to innovation.

Do you know what your customers not only want—but need—to solve common pain points of a traditional point of sale terminal? Star’s latest innovation, mPOP, has audiences enticed and we are excited about the big reveal.

The mPOP combines a two-inch thermal receipt printer with “Drop-In and Print” paper loading and a compact cash drawer with 4 bill and adjustable 6 or 8 coin slots. The hidden space under the removable
coin till provides extra security for high value currency, store checks, and credit card slips. For added security, a locking base bracket is included with the mPOP to ensure reliable mounting on countertops. Enhancing its functionality, the mPOP includes USB ports for charging external devices, optional plug  and play barcode scanner, and a universal device stand.

Compatible with all major operating systems (iOS, Android, and Windows), the mPOP works with any supported mobile software and payment system, allowing retailers the freedom of using various platform options. With Apple MFi certification, the mPOP can also connect easily and pair with the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Additionally, the mPOP includes a 2 year bumper to bumper warranty and is compatible with AllReceipts, Star Micronics’ FREE digital receipt solution which is available to download on all iOS and Android mobile devices. Retailers can offer AllReceipts to customers by simply enabling AllReceipts from a Windows driver. For iOS and Android applications, developers will integrate this feature into their application.

With multiple exit options for enhanced cable management, the mPOP complements any countertop area for a visually appealing POS system. The functions and connectivity of the mPOP make processing customer transactions smooth and effective for small shops, cafes, florists, bars, and many more. Aesthetically simple and elegant, the mPOP provides the ultimate point of sale solution for the new face of mPOS.
