CHICAGO, Dec. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Epazz, Inc. (OTC:EPAZ), a leading provider of blockchain cryptocurrency mobile apps and cloud-based business software solutions, announced today that the company’s new bitcoin payment system, ZenaPay, will be releasing its point of sale app for Merchant on or before Feb.15, 2018, in the App Store. The point of sale app goes beyond the current version of the Merchant app, which is currently available in the App Store. The point of sale app is a full-feature point of sale app that allows a merchant to accept Bitcoin, cash and credit card transactions on touch screens. Merchants will be able to load all items onto the app and export the information to their accounting software. The app will work with most hardware devices including credit card printers, cash drawers and mobile tablets. ZenaPay will offer the equipment on its website.
The point of sale app will replace the current Merchant app and will be available at no additional charge for current Merchant app users.
ZenaPay was developed to solve a major problem in one industry: getting merchant accounts. The feedback we have received has indicated that the opportunity is bigger than just one industry. ZenaPay is available to all merchant industries. ZenaPay for Android is currently in development and will launch on or before Dec. 31, 2017.
Traditional banking systems do not allow many merchant industries to access their payment systems. ZenaPay offers clients a cutting-edge payment solution that allows consumers to buy items online or in-store using Bitcoin. The new payment system offers a unique bitcoin payment software that enables consumers to easily use the digital currency to make purchases at stores. Additionally, the process is anonymous because all transaction details are encrypted through Bitcoin. This process allows stores to accept digital currency instead of cash only.
Some of the chief advantages of the payment system include the following:
- Flexibility: Cash-only merchants can now accept a more reliable form of payment.
- Anonymity: Customers do not have to share their name or personal details if they do not want to.
Shaun Passley, PhD, CEO of Epazz, stated, “We have established a rollout plan for ZenaPay software release over the course of 2018. We are excited about where ZenaPay will go in the future as we start to get user feedback. We will also be starting a new marketing program as the new versions come out.”
Vendor and Payroll Payment Solution
The ZenaPay development team is also working on vendor payment solutions to allow merchant businesses to pay vendors and employees using cryptocurrencies.
Other future features include the following:
- E-commerce store
- Seed-to-sale tracking
- Sales reporting and compliance
