The Success of Pop-Up Retail and Restaurants
From temporary shops, to stalls or empty spaces, the pop-up retailing revolution is evolving throughout the UK. As quoted on The Telegraph.co.uk, “pop-up shops are the fastest growing business sector in the UK and is on course to contribute £2.1bn to the economy” in 2014 alone.
With the growing complexity of pop-up installations, optional short-term leasing and seasonal event promotions, retailers and restaurateurs are looking for simple mPOS technology to take flexible payments on the move.
So let’s talk technology…
mPOS technology offers a flexible alternative to traditional POS. With the emergence of mobile payment companies such as iZettle, Payleven, Square, Sum-up, PayPal and so many more offering instant POS solutions. mPOS is quickly becoming an attractive option for both micro-merchants and large franchises looking for pop-up retailing / restaurant opportunities.
