Accumulate AB introduced a suite of products and services for mobile payment and proximity marketing, that for the first time brings the online shopping experience to the physical store. Close Payment with Close Beacon is a BLE/iBeacon-based solution for mobile payment and proximity marketing. It works on all major smartphones running iOS and Android.
Close Payment supports any existing payment scheme such as credit, debit direct account, or wallet based solution to create a truly digital wallet. After registering, the user can pay for an item by simply being close to the cash register and then approving the purchase with a push of a button. Close Payment can incorporate loyalty cards, coupons, vouchers etc. Even ID cards can be included in the online wallet, making it possible for the consumer to leave everything but the smartphone at home.
