*Updated News: Effective 29 June 2014, Mint Wireless is no longer the official distributor of the Soft Space mPOS solution in Australia and New Zealand.

PETALING JAYA: Soft Space Sdn Bhd extends its user base to New Zealand through the launch of PayClip in partnership with Bank of New Zealand (BNZ) and Mint Wireless. The solution enables business people on the move to expedite their payments collection.

Soft Space is glad to announce yet another launch, this time with Bank of New Zealand. The Soft Space mPOS solution was deployed in September 2013. Initially, BNZ launched with 2,500 card readers and by October, BNZ had ordered an additional 1,500 card readers.

“We have been overwhelmed by the response from our customers since our launch” said Harry Ferreira, BNZ’s head of small business.

Ferreira added that this technology allows businesses to take payments on the spot and receive funds in their account as early as the next business day.

BNZ says it has become the first New Zealand bank to let common payments be approved from customers’ mobile phones via the bank’s mobile banking for business app.

The launch of the mPOS solution in New Zealand is a collaboration between Soft Space and partner, Mint Wireless Australia. Minterprise, Mint Wireless’ custom mobile payments platform is powered by the Soft Space Centralized EMV mPOS platform.

“We are glad to have established our presence in the New Zealand market. With the launch of Pay Clip that utilizes the Soft Space mPOS platform, we hope to see ourselves in the Australian market soon. I would like to also thank our partners, Mint Wireless, for supporting and representing us in that region” said Chang Chew Soon, CEO of Soft Space.
