Paymob Launch Tap-to-Phone in the US with ZmBIZI Supporting Black-Owned Small Biz

June 21, 2021

We are excited to announce Paymob is launching in the U.S. through our partner ZmBIZI and their smartphone app. As a payment rail for business apps offering SoftPOS technology we, alongside ZmBIZI look forward to bringing speedier, more accessible and flexible payment acceptance to small businesses.

Our launch in the US will coincide with Visa launching its first U.S. Tap to Phone pilot in Washington D.C. to support the region’s black-owned small businesses. The pilot will see Visa providing ZmBIZI’s Z1 devices with Tap to Phone technology empowered by Paymob, on a six-city SMB revitalisation initiative, which also includes Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles and Miami. 

“With the ZmBIZI Smartphone integrated with the Paymob SoftPOS we are now able to create the next generation of mobile merchants who are doing ‘business on the go’. 

This is how we empower communities across the globe to become truly self-sufficient . A one stop business solution that is also a verified partner for Visa Global Small Business Solutions” says Alpesh Patel, Co Founder of ZmBIZI 

Having been on this journey for three years, as a technology solution provider and payment gateway, this is an exciting milestone for Paymob and we look forward to working with ZmBIZI to bring a more seamless payment experience to their merchant customers across the US.

Our Co Founder and CEO, Kosta Du notes “This is a huge leap for the paytech space, the move will allow more independent businesses across the country to accept payments without the upfront costs for external POS hardware, meaning small businesses and gig economy workers can accept card and digital payments quickly, on the go, anytime.”

The ZmBIZI app will allow business owners and their employees to simply tap the app, type in the amount they wish to charge, ask the customer to tap their contactless card or e-wallet to the smartphone, and send a paperless e-receipt to the customer in a matter of seconds. A big step forward from the traditional and considerably more expensive mPOS we have come accustom to over the past year.

For Paymob this project with Visa is the necessary place to start as we launch our solution in the US, enabling those who will feel the benefit of Paymobs SoftPOS technology the most.
