POPcodes to help clients deliver COVID-19 safety messages at payment kiosks within 48 hours

POPcodes, a provider of payment terminal software, is offering to provide personalized, white-labeled versions of its point-of-purchase communication software for free with a turnaround time of 48 hours to help client locations remain safe during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a press release. The technology will be configured to deliver COVID-19-specific cleaning instructions directly to the merchant's in-store payment terminal, helping keep employees and customers safe. 

Under normal circumstances, POPcodes clients use the software to deliver welcome messages and device set-up instructions, or to provide instant access to tech support content like FAQs and quick reference guides and help automate sales of value-added products or services.  

With the current pandemic, quickly distributing critical messages directly to where merchants and their employees are most exposed is more crucial than ever, according to the press release. For example, health care professionals, credit card issuers and payment processors are trying to encourage merchants and their customers to use "tap to pay," and purchase limits are being increased.

POPcodes is waiving 2020 licensing fees for its white-label app which will display a branded version of the cleaning instructions on payment terminals each time they're turned on. POPcodes will provide the ready-to-deploy software package within 48 hours.
