About The Payment Blade

The quickest way for retailers to introduce mobile in-store is enabling their ecommerce platform on the Payment Blade. Thumbzup helps their customers deliver in these 3 key areas:

  1. Increased revenue: the Payment Blade facilitates hyper-sales engagement by using the ecommerce platform to provide store assistants with product information and content
  2. Improved customer experience: extends ability to service customers through stock lookups, request IBTs, and schedule deliveries and branch collections
  3. Seamless payment: Conversions are easier when customers have flexibility and personal service. The Payment Blade lets store assistants close sales on the floor by accepting store cards, gift cards, EMV cards, or digital payments
