How can you use TWINT?
TWINT is a versatile payment collection system. It can be used:
- At your cash register with a beacon
Use TWINT with your existing cash register software by adding a TWINT beacon (CHF 95 per beacon with a three-year warranty). The beacon creates a connection between your cash register and your customer’s smartphone, and this even works offline. With the beacon, you can collect payments even when your customers have no mobile network coverage.
- At your cash register with a terminal
If your terminal’s screen can display a QR code, you can use it to collect TWINT payments. At checkout, your customers will see a QR code that they can scan with their smartphones. This system is also available for mobile terminals.
- With the merchant app
Download the TWINT merchant app if you don’t already have a system in place that lets customers pay without cash or if you use a smartphone or tablet (running iOS or Android) to collect payments. The TWINT merchant app works either with the TWINT beacon or with QR codes.
- At unmanned points of sale
Display a QR code at your self-service points of sale to make it easy for your customers to pay. All they have to do is scan the code and pay with their smartphone.
- Online or on app stores
TWINT lets your customers pay online quickly and easily. When it’s time to check out, they’ll see a QR code. To make their payment, they just have to scan that code. For purchases on app stores, your customers will need to type the code they see on their screen into the TWINT app.
