Nets launches Softpay together with turning the mobile phone into a contactless payment terminal

Press release

​Together with, Nets, part of Nexi Group, has introduced the new and innovative softPOS solution, Softpay, that enables merchants to accept contactless payments on Android smartphones and tablets, just like a payment terminal, without additional hardware. 

The largest retailer in Denmark, Salling Group, is the first merchant onboard. The new softPOS solution enables the secure and simple processing of cashless payments.

"We are creating the mobile point of sale that can now take place at the shelf in the shop, at the table in the restaurant, at festivals, with the customer at the front door or in the railway dining car – purchases and payments are made where the customer is and no longer where the cash register is," says Robert Hoffmann, CEO of Nets Merchant Services. "This increases the chance of impulse purchases and focuses the shopping experience on the positive moments because queuing and waiting at the checkout are eliminated."

Softpay is developed together with Danish based payment company,

"We could not have found a better partner than Nets Group for the launch of the softPOS application. We have great expectations for the partnership," said Craig Jacoby, CEO,

Robert Hoffmann is looking forward to introducing Softpay and thereby redesigning the processes starting from the customers point of view.

"Today, flexibility and mobility is required in almost all areas of life. With Softpay, we are consistently thinking this through to the end. It is about further simplifying the payment process for consumers and merchants, reducing complexity, and redesigning the processes starting from the customer. Today more than ever, we need solutions that create uniform systems for customers across Europe," says Hoffmann.



Softpay is a company focused on mobile payment applications which transform mobile phones and other Android devices into contactless payment terminals with PIN (SoftPOS / Tap-to-phone solutions). Softpay's solutions are approved by Visa, Mastercard and Dankort and are available for both large and small merchants in Europe and Americas. For further information see:
