eService and Mastercard win the eDucat Industry Award using MYPINPAD solution

eService and Mastercard won the eDucat Industry Award at the 7th Cashless Congress, in the category ‘New product changing the non-cash payments market.’ The companies were awarded for the pilot roll-out of the innovative LitePOS solution using the ‘Pin on mobile’ technology. LitePOS, thanks to the connection of a smartphone with a compact card reader, enables secure PIN entry on merchants’ mobile devices. Until now, this solution was reserved exclusively for payment terminals.

‘The LitePOS project, one of the first solutions based on ‘PIN on mobile’ technology in the world, is an important step towards further dissemination of non-cash transactions, in particular card payments. It enables the creation of a fully mobile and, at the same time, very affordable device that will provide everyone – even the smallest entrepreneur – with safe and convenient acceptance of payments from customers,’ emphasizes Joanna Seklecka, CEO of eService.
