Introducing Android and Linux payment terminals

Today, payment terminals powered by Linux are commonplace. And as a secure, stable, and simple technology, it is easy to see why. Well-established across industries — in large retail, vending, hospitality, and parking — they offer a reliable and straightforward no-frills basis for payment.

🎯🎯 The main difference between these terminals is their functionality. Linux’s strength is its simplicity: it’s purely a device for payment. For many operators — including large retailers with their own point-of-sale (POS) systems, or providers of low-cost vending solutions — that’s often all they need.

👉👉 However, many operators want more, and Android can offer it. With its ever-growing range of apps, the Android OS can turn a simple payment terminal into a fully-functional business device. Whether its customer ID functions or unobtrusive customer surveys, we can build an Android app that offers it.

App functionality opens up a world of opportunity. Yet, Android perhaps promises most for those operators who have an app of their own already. You can bring the app you built for tablet or smartphone straight over to your payment terminal, with very limited adaptation.

⭐⭐ Linux can only run apps designed for one particular use case, but Android will save you the costs of developing yet another use-specific app. And, across devices, this will give customers and staff a familiar brand environment that they already know and trust
