Should your customers continue to be able to pay with MobilePay in your store?

The vast majority of Danes have adopted MobilePay in recent years, and the payment method has become a solid competitor to the more traditional card payment. Therefore, there is no doubt that customers expect to pay with MobilePay no matter where they shop. The transaction is completed with just a small swipe on the screen, and the customer can proceed.

We offer all our customers with a 52RETAIL POS solution the opportunity to install a new and easy solution for MobilePay, where customers scan a QR code, shown on a sticker at checkout, to complete the payment.

MobilePay is outshining the Bluetooth technology

MobilePay has phased out the Bluetooth technology BLE for physical stores in connection with a change of strategy. Instead, MobilePay has switched to using only QR codes, which customers have to scan with their phones. From 1 July 2021, it has thus not been possible for physical stores to offer customers MobilePay as before unless they have upgraded to completely new payment terminals, where the QR code is shown digitally on display. If you do not have immediate plans to upgrade your payment terminals, read on below so you can continue to offer your customers payment via MobilePay.


How to proceed with MobilePay

  • You need to get MobilePay stickers with QR codes
  • You must be on a 52RETAIL version 55 as your current POS solution

In practical terms, Fiftytwo supports the MobilePay V10 API, which registers a local QR code displayed at each checkout terminal with a graphic sticker. This solution is independent of the payment terminal and requires separate maintenance.

License price per. terminal: DKK 250 + 15% in annual maintenance.

We have prepared a detailed guide on how to set up the solution with 52RETAIL.The guide describes how to find the necessary information about your MobilePay IDs, obtain QR code stickers from MobilePay, and update your 52RETAIL checkout solution to work with the QR code stickers.
