Citcon, the leading mobile wallet payment provider enabling global commerce at scale, today announced a new payment technology integration with Abacus Business Computer (ABCPOS), an integrated merchant services company serving the restaurant and retail industries. The Citcon/ABCPOS integration will make ABCPOS kiosks the first restaurant kiosk in the US to accept customer payments from popular digital wallets like PayPal and Venmo, as well as dozens of popular alternate payment methods favored by international customers.
Integrated merchant services systems have transformed the restaurant and retail industries by streamlining, automating, and connecting key operational processes – from order-taking to kitchen operations, to inventory management. ABCPOS has continually evolved its merchant services platform to keep pace with the business needs of its clients and the expectations of the customers they serve. Expanding the payment transaction capabilities of its industry-leading Self-Service Kiosks is a key consideration at a time when restaurants are under increasing financial pressure.
“Every restaurant owner knows that convenience ranks right next to product and service quality when it comes to survival. Our partnership with Citcon expands the benefits of utilizing customer self-serve kiosks by enabling restaurants to accept PayPal and Venmo payments alongside dozens of other payment methods favored by international clientele safely and securely.”
Sean Chen, CEO of ABCPOS
“Enabling more kinds of transactions means attracting more customers to your store,” said Wei Jiang, President of Citcon. “We have seen this scenario play out across merchant categories around the world. Bringing these expanded payment capabilities to restaurants via self-serve kiosks enables any operator – from a sole proprietor to a small chain, to a national franchise network – to realize the benefits of expanded payment capabilities.”
