NEW YORK, Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Counter space is at a premium for most small business owners. This week at FinovateFall 2012, ShopKeep POS, the simplest way to make smarter business decisions, is announcing plans to integrate Dwolla and LevelUp mobile payments into its iPad POS solution, eliminating the clutter of multiple payment processing devices at the counter. Dwolla and LevelUp customers will soon be able to pay with their mobile phones at more than 3,000 ShopKeep POS merchants.

“We are consistently looking to align ourselves with agile companies in the mobile payments space to make the process of doing business more efficient for store operators,” said Jason Richelson, CEO and Founder of ShopKeep POS. “Earlier this year, we were chosen as the first east coast partner to power PayPal’s mobile payments, and now we’ve teamed up with Dwolla and LevelUp to add even more options for our merchants and their customers.”

The process is simple – similar to the PayPal experience, ShopKeep POS will integrate Dwolla and LevelUp right into the iPad POS register as an alternative way for customers to complete their payment.

“Dwolla is saving owners tens of thousands of dollars every day in traditional card fees, so integrations like these demonstrate the dedication ShopKeep has to bringing meaningful solutions to small business owners,”  Ben Milne, CEO and Founder of Dwolla. “Dwolla was designed to play nicely with cloud-based solutions, but what ShopKeep has done at the checkout goes beyond the plug-and-play solutions we provide. They’ve created a downright simple, valuable and compelling experience for the end user.”

Merchants who use ShopKeep POS are more efficient than those who use traditional cash registers to manage their business, partially due to the increased automation of store processes. For $49 per month, ShopKeep POS rings sales, processes credit cards and mobile payments, prints receipts, and prints orders remotely. Merchants can also manage sales in real time on their mobile smartphone, track inventory and customers, as well as view ClearInsight™ reports.
