Right now, Bitpay is the predominant POS software for merchants.
If a merchant decides to accept bitcoin, they usually choose Bitpay.
 
I'd like to see an app that allows the merchant to accept ANY cryptocurrency.
Bitshares is the perfect choice here, no? But how?
 
If I go to a store and I feel like paying with litecoin, they should accept it. The money goes right into their Bitshares or bitAsset account.
Same thing goes for bitSilver, darkcoin, namecoin, whatever.
 
The only thing the Checkout should consist of is the large tablet, card swipe/nfc module, the handheld barcode scanner with mount, small printer for customers who request a receipt and a cash drawer.
 
Is anyone working on an expanded POS app for that yet?

But someone has to pay for that... The user pays the spread which can be big. So I dont see this getting adopted widely...

I love ShapeShift. Love it.
 
But, I'm saying that we need one piece of open source software that can be downloaded to any tablet turning it into a cash register (kasse in deutsch).
This Checkout will be able to accept any currency, or form thereof.
 
Something similar to this, but much more full featured:

hmm, yeah kinda. it doesn't say that it exists yet, but it probably wouldn't be that hard. it's a shopping cart in a sense (something i am VERY familiar with) and once all products have been scanned in then the Checker just selects how the customer wants to pay.
 
cash, credit or crypto? :)
