- Mobile POS solution for transactions anywhere, anytime
- Accommodates debit and credit card transactions
U MOBILE Sdn Bhd has rolled out its U Mobile QuickPay mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) solution, which only requires a smartphone, the Quickpay app and an EMV (Europay/ MasterCard/ Visa) approved card reader for transactions to take place.
This would allow entrepreneurs and SMEs (small and medium enterprises) to conduct ‘business-on-the-go,’ the company said in a statement.

U Mobile QuickPay allows unlimited selling opportunities and helps to prepare businesses and individuals without their own physical stores to accommodate debit and credit card transactions, leading to improved portability and more opportunities in closing sales, it claimed.
“Our latest mPOS offering attests … to [our] commitment of offering products which relate to market needs,” said U Mobile chief marketing officer Jasmine Lee.
“U Mobile QuickPay is a one-stop solution for entrepreneurs and businesses to enjoy making fast, flexible, simple and secure transactions while being on-the-go,” she added.
First Data Corporation, which provides payments technology and services, said that consumers today are increasingly incorporating smartphones as part of their shopping experience and are demanding fast and easy payment solutions.
Merchants are moving fast to cater to changing consumer trends and adapt to this new age of mobile commerce. According to First Data’s research, more than one-third (36%) of merchants worldwide are planning to adopt an mPOS system using a mobile phone in the near future.
First Data expects the trend to become even more prevalent in Asia with the region’s high mobile penetration rates.
MC Payment, a regional mPOS solution provider, said it believes that mobile POS terminals are required to improve customer satisfaction and provide more diversified payment collection channels.
Anabelle Co-Martinent, founder of La Juiceria Sdn Bhd, a cold-pressed juice company, said that U Mobile QuickPay has helped simplify her day-to-day business transactions.
As La Juiceria runs without the presence of a retail store at the moment, customers usually order online to purchase their juices. They later pick up these orders at the La Juiceria headquarters in Sri Hartamas in Kuala Lumpur.
With U Mobile Quickpay, the transaction process has been rendered much simpler as customers can now ‘physically’ pay with their credit and debit cards.
U Mobile QuickPay is now available at only RM250 with any U Mobile plan. Consumers enjoy zero monthly fees with no hidden charges, U Mobile claimed.
U Mobile QuickPay is compatible with most iOS or Android smartphones and tablets, and the free app can be downloaded by simply searching for ‘U Mobile QuickPay’ on Apple’s and Google’s app stores.
