Pine Labs Introduces Mini, a QR-First Device with Card Acceptance

Pine Labs, a leading omnichannel platform for merchant commerce, made waves on September 4, 2023, with the announcement of their groundbreaking product, “Pine Labs Mini.” This innovative device is set to revolutionize QR and card acceptance in India, offering a cost-effective solution that caters specifically to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Traditionally, Point of Sale (PoS) devices in India have primarily focused on catering to customers using debit and credit cards. Pine Labs is taking a bold step by introducing Pine Labs Mini, a QR-first and contactless card tap payment device. Priced at approximately one-third of the cost of a standard PoS terminal, this device is expected to be a game-changer, accelerating the adoption of digital payments among smaller merchants.

Navnit Nakra, Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) of Pine Labs, expressed enthusiasm for the launch, highlighting the importance of QR-based and card tap payments in India’s fast-paced environment. He stated, “Indian consumers are constantly on the move, and for merchants, providing a seamless checkout experience and eliminating cost barriers associated with digitizing point-of-sale transactions are imperative. To address these needs, we are excited to introduce Pine Labs Mini, a cost-effective PoS solution that prioritizes QR payments while also accepting cards.”

Pine Labs has been at the forefront of India’s digital payment revolution, consistently delivering innovative payment solutions to meet the omnichannel needs of merchants. As a technology-driven organization, Pine Labs remains dedicated to addressing merchant challenges through continuous innovation.
