Via a new SDK integration, Lightspeed’s POS software is now running on Payworks’ technology and includes a card reader that enables merchants to accept EMV Chip & Pin, contactless and mobile wallet payments such as Apple Pay and Samsung Pay. Onboarding hundreds of new merchants every week, Lightspeed is one of the largest POS software companies in the world, with more than 55,000 registers in 100 countries.
