Product Highlights at Kiosk Summit 2018

Cash Desk K2 Slim
Retaining all the features of a multi-payment kiosk for the issuance of receipts and/or tickets, Cash Desk K2 Slim is an automatic device specifically destined for electronic payments. Eliminating the task of handling cash transactions results in a product that’s thinner and smoother in the movements. The device boasts a fast and simple user interface, indicating each operation to be carried out step by step with the aid of visual indicators (LEDs). A multi-lingual and interactive menu allows customers to pay for their goods or services in three easy steps.

For the merchant, the self-service Cask Desk K2 Slim can significantly improve and streamline operations so that long queues are avoided, cash handling is eliminated, and staffing requirements and labour cost are reduced. For the catering industry, hygiene can be improved as the person responsible for preparing foods no longer needs to handle physical money.

ATOS 15 ELEGANT
ATOS 15 Elegant combines pure elegance with high-end technology and comes with a 16:9 fully adjustable monitor that is supported by the stability of a solid chrome-effect base. Efficient hardware coupled with intelligent software makes ATOS 15 Elegant the ideal tool for any Point of Sale. The unit comes with an optional rear customer display that completes its maximum expression of functional elegance. This customer display is available in two different sizes, allowing the merchant to either present the customer with a list of purchased items or alternatively to display its own graphics visualising the consumptions on sale. This back graphic display can be cleverly used as an advertising tool to broadcast the latest news and in-store promotions, giving added value to any POS.

Multiple connections including Ethernet, USB and Micro SD allowing the ATOS 15 Elegant to pair with printers, tablets and scanners are all standard. An NFC reader, an MFC magnetic card and an I-Button are additional options with this innovative and eye-catching POS system.

Open Standards-Based Hardware
All of DATA4’s and RCH’s innovative solutions are based on open source technology and can be easily integrated with various third-party applications and systems. Each system is designed in-house by the company’s Research and Development teams, delivering efficient and streamlined technical support so that the payment terminals fully communicate with third-party systems. The result is a secure, reliable product for every system requirement.

Functional and Elegant Designs
Highly intelligent on the inside, elegant and compact on the outside, each product has a distinguished and modern design made in Italy. A DATA4 and an RCH product is characterised by its perfect combination of elegance with the simplicity of functionality.

aeropost.com and eBay extend relationship to deliver best-in-class shopping, payment and package delivery experience in Latin America

aeropost.com and eBay extend relationship to deliver best-in-class shopping, payment and package delivery experience in Latin America

 

The new offering includes aeropost.com’s all-inclusive price, quality customer service, and speed and reliability from over 30 years of operational experience in more than 40 countries.

San Jose, California, 2017-Feb-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — An expanded relationship between aeropost.com and eBay provides shoppers in Latin America access to tens of millions of eBay.com listings by purchasing them on aeropost.com

With over 1 billion listings worldwide, eBay’s vision for commerce is one that is enabled by people, powered by technology, and open to everyone—creating more economic opportunity for all. eBay continues to enhance the shopping experience for its sellers and buyers, including making the platform’s massive selection of inventory more accessible to customers across the globe.

In this newly extended relationship, aeropost.com and eBay are creating a best-in-class shopping, payment and package delivery experience for customers in Latin America and the Caribbean, allowing them to access tens of millions of eBay.com listings. Aeropost.com provides transparent, all-inclusive pricing on tens of millions of products, and can deliver them directly to customers’ doorstep or one of the more than 100 aeropost.com storefront pickup locations across 40 countries.

“We’re thrilled to partner with aeropost.com to bring eBay’s expansive selection of inventory to a broader consumer audience in Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Sylvie De Wever, eBay’s General Manager of Latin America. “The relationship allows eBay to leverage aeropost.com’s leadership in cross-border logistics to deliver a seamless shopping experience to a relatively untapped buyer segment.”

Nicolas Maslowski, CRO of aeropost.com, agrees: “We have made our alliance even stronger, giving Latin Americans the opportunity to buy their favorite eBay products from the comfort of their country, with clarity and ease of pricing, using their own local currency, stress-free.”

The initial list of countries to take advantage of the partnership includes the Bahamas, British Virgin Islands (Tortola), Columbia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Grand Cayman, Honduras, Jamaica, Panamá, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Peru, Saint Martin, Saint Vincent, Trinidad & Tobago, Turks & Caicos – with more countries to be added in the near future.

Enhanced Functionality

With this new relationship, aeropost.com and eBay provide customers in Latin America and the Caribbean a unique cross-border shopping experience by allowing them to purchase eBay products on aeropost.com. After finding their perfect item on eBay, customers then copy the eBay URL into aeropost.com, which calculates an all-inclusive price that includes the price of the product, shipping, handling, taxes, and fees all rolled into one. Customers make just a single payment to aeropost.com. Depending on the country, aeropost.com offers a variety of financing options using local currency, such as cash, PayPal, zero interest financing in installments and credit card points.

Customers can feel rest assured with aeropost.com’s Warranty and Returns program, which covers most transactions. Additionally, within the customer’s aeropost.com account, customers can track the status of their packages to know when they will arrive at their destination. With more than 10 million packages processed through aeropost.com’s Miami warehouse, approximately half fly out the same day they arrive in Miami.

The integration with aeropost.com represents a broader API initiative that eBay has recently undertaken to make both buying and selling easier than ever. Late last year, eBay revamped its API platform with ten new standards-based APIs, with more to come in 2017

About aeropost.com

aeropost.com, founded in 1986 is one of the largest cross-border logistics and e-commerce companies in Latin America and the Caribbean, present in more than 40 countries. aeropost.com manages a warehouse in Miami that is more than 1700 m2.

Carrefour Spain introduces payment via smartphone in its petrol stations

Carrefour Spain introduces payment via smartphone in its petrol stations

SPAIN, 2016-Aug-13 — /EPR Retail News/ — Carrefour Spain has 122 service stations and introduced the new payment system in July. It’s based on an app called My Carrefour, which can be downloaded for free from Apple Store or Google Play.

The service is restricted to Pass card holders, who have to register via a safe and easy form in the app. Once registered with the service, customers can pay for their fuel without having to leave their cars.
The app uses geolocation to identify the service station visited by the customer. The customer then has to select the pump, product and amount before refuelling as normal. If the customer is in a non-Carrefour service station, the My Carrefour app shows the nearest Carrefour fuelling point.

Fuel purchases for food savings
The My Carrefour app also allows customers to personalize their fuel purchases each time they use the app and register their preferences to make future fuel purchases easier and quicker, reducing the time they spend in their refuelling stops.

Customers can also use their discount coupons and save 8% on their fuel purchases in Carrefour service stations using their Pass or Club Carrefour cards, which are totally free. The saving accumulates on the customer’s Chequeahorro account, which offers savings in purchases made in hypermarkets, Market supermarkets and Carrefour.es.

An App that makes shopping easier
Smartphone fuel payments are one of the latest features available with the My Carrefour app. The retailer launched the app last year to incorporate new digital services in the daily lives of its consumers. The app makes consumers’ lives easier by allowing them to virtually book their turn in hypermarket fresh produce counters, create shopping lists with voice commands and receive digital shopping receipts to check for refunds and changes.
