Aug 31, Colombo: Commercial Bank of Ceylon has launched Sri Lanka’s first LANKAQR supported Android OS based Point-of-Sale (POS) device in collaboration with PAYable (Pvt) Ltd. to further facilitate cashless payments at merchant outlets countrywide.

Positioned as the most advanced Android POS device in the country, the Android Smart Terminal combines the functionality and portability of an Android terminal with tailored security-certified payments software, enabling it to process transactions via VISA, Mastercard, UnionPay, LankaPay and JCB, as well as QR based wallet payments under LANKAQR. It offers consumers a frictionless payment experience and drastically reduces the waiting time at checkout counters.

The device is empowered to accept EMV/Chip, Magstripe, Near Field Communication (NFC) and QR based transactions – making it possible for merchants to offer customers the convenience of paying via the platform of their choice quickly and efficiently.

For merchants, the tailored PAYable solution offers the convenience of being able to perform a single settlement for all payment acceptance methods as well as the ability to integrate the solution with cashier terminals to facilitate fast checkout with a single swipe. The PAYable software also offers merchants a trilingual user interface and allows merchants to complete a transaction in three simple steps.

Speaking on the device and what sets it apart from other traditional devices in the market, Thusitha Suraweera, Head of Commercial Bank’s Card Centre said: “The Android Smart Terminal is the latest iteration of cashless payment acceptance devices. The device is of the highest quality – having been extensively tested and certified in order to offer the best and safest user experience in the market. By partnering with PAYable Pvt Ltd., we have combined the best hardware and software solutions in order to provide a single all-encompassing payment acceptance solution that is flexible and scalable – in addition to being cost-effective and accessible to all businesses.”
