Dutch POS provider brings bitcoin payments to retailers
Countr POS, a Dutch provider of a tablet-based point-of-sale software for small to medium-size businesses, has announced a strategic partnership with Coinify, a European blockchain payment and trading service provider. This partnership enables Countr POS to offer retailers a wider variety of alternative payments, according to a press release.
Countr POS, which enables businesses to track sales in real time and manage inventories, will be able to offer blockchain payments on the point of sale through the established partnership with Coinify.
