iPads as Cash Registers Are About to Go From Novelty to Norm
Between 2011 and 2012, the number of “mobile point-of-sale” terminals registered by businesses worldwide more than doubled, according to U.K. industry research firm Timetric. The newly released report doesn’t see such a dramatic rate of uptake to continue year after year, but researchers do project that the percentage of checkout counters using mobile point-of-sale systems such as those offered by Square, ShopKeep, Intuit and PayPal will jump from fewer than one-fifth last year to nearly half by 2017.
