LevelUp, ShopKeep team on iPad payment processing
SCVNGR, the startup behind the fast-growing LevelUp mobile payment application, is partnering with mobile point-of-sale systems provider ShopKeep to roll out an integrated loyalty platform optimized for Apple's iPad. Merchants can now ring up purchases and process LevelUp payments right from their ShopKeep POS iPad register without switching devices. In addition, ShopKeep consolidates LevelUp transactions with all other cash and credit purchases into one report that can be accessed anywhere.
LevelUp (available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone) enables users to link their credit or debit card to their smartphone, generating a unique QR code they can scan at the point of sale to complete transactions. SCVNGR does not charge a payment processing fee on LevelUp transactions; the firm instead generates revenue by claiming a 35 percent share of sales derived from daily deals campaigns and related mobile promotions that partners integrate into the app. Release
