Qpagos Corp., a US-based provider of digital payment services for cash-based and unbanked consumers in Mexico, introduced its 4th generation kiosks at Expo Antad in Guadalajara, Mexico, according to a press release. Antad, the Mexican national trade association of supermarkets and department stores, represents over 107 national chains with almost 50,000 points of sales across the country.
Qpagos' new kiosks expand beyond the typical interfaces, such as coin and bill acceptors, printers and bar code readers, to include a coin recycler to facilitate change to consumers that use Qpagos kiosks as their principal bill payment solution for over 150 services, including most utilities, as well as mobile phone payments which in Mexico are primarily prepaid.
"Qpagos continues to enhance its self-service solutions for the retail sector, contributing to address congestion in teller lines as bill payments are shifted to our kiosks," CEO Gaston Pereira said in the release. "Moreover, Qpagos' expanding menu of payees brings to these point of sales additional revenue opportunities."
