Amazon Launches MPOS in U.S.

August 17, 2014 (Sun): Amazon has announced Amazon Local Register, a secure card reader and mobile app that provides local businesses with the tools they need to quickly and easily accept credit and debit cards via mobile devices.

In conjunction with the launch, customers who sign up for Amazon Local Register before October 31 will receive a low promotional rate of 1.75 percent per card swipe on all major credit and debit cards until January 1, 2016. To kick start, customers just create an account on, purchase a US$10 card reader, and download the free mobile app from Amazon Appstore, Apple App Store or Google Play.

Besides, each customer’s first US$10 in transaction fees will be credited back to the customer’s account once Amazon Local Register is in use – allowing customers to fully recoup the cost of the card reader.
