International Youth Day and how myPOS supports young business owners
Product News / 06.08.2021
They say that age is just a number but in business, age can mean a lot of things. In the context of International Youth Day, which is celebrated on the 12th of August each year, youth in terms of entrepreneurship can refer to age or experience, irrespective of how old the merchant is.
At myPOS, we’re thrilled to be able to serve both these types of entrepreneurs – the young and those who are young at heart and with a vision! So, how do we do that? Here are some of the ways we do so.
1. Versatile POS devices
Payments acceptance is a critical part of doing business. And with an ever-growing number of customers looking to pay in a cashless way, it’s vital to equip your business with a POS device.
Luckily, this doesn’t have to mean a huge financial investment, as we offer paper-free and eco-friendly POS devices going from as little as 29 EUR in the form of a portable card reader.
It is small, compact, lightweight and sturdy, and packs a real punch when it comes to accepting payments. What’s more, is that it comes with a free Data SIM card for Internet connectivity; accepts contactless, Chip&PIN, and magstripe payments; it has a powerful battery; a colourful LCD display; and a durable keypad.
2. Online payment solutions

Your customers can simply call with their credit or debit card details and pay you. The process requires no complex integrations, additional software, or hardware.
3. myPOS Glass
An innovation in the payments space, you can now also accept payments on your Android smartphone with myPOS Glass.
This softPOS technology is a simple app that you need to download from the Google Play Store, which allows you to accept contactless prepaid, debit, and credit card payments straight on your phone. It’s completely secure as no cardholder data is stored on your phone, and the solution has been tested in Visa and Mastercard laboratories.
