Elo Introduces M60 Pay Android-Powered Mobile Computer With Built-in Payment Capabilities
Featuring a 6-inch display, Qualcomm 660 processor and Android 10 OS with built-in EMV, MSR and NFC for payments complementing a suite of enterprise-grade business tools.
Milpitas, Calif. — January 13, 2022 — Elo, a leading global provider of Android-powered interactive devices, today announced a major addition to their mobile computer lineup – the Elo M60 Pay handheld computer. The new device brings payment centerstage to empower retail, hospitality, and entertainment businesses to accept payments in store or on the go – wherever customers are located.
We designed the M60 Pay mobile computer to allow businesses to interact efficiently with their customers, and the reaction from our partner community has been amazing,said Craig Witsoe, CE0, Elo.From line-busting and ticketing to tableside and in-seat payment, the M60 Pay makes decentralizing the checkout process and taking payments at the table, at the seat, around the store or at the counter easy.
Built to accept today’s popular payment and loyalty cards, the new M60 Pay has a built-in EMV, magnetic stripe reader and NFC for cards with chips, stripes and digital contactless payments. The M60 Pay features a large 6-inch HD touch display, a fast Qualcomm 660 octa-core processor and Android 10 OS with Google Mobile Services. The M60 Pay device is designed to last a full shift with its 12-hour battery life,* and its rugged design is purpose-built to endure commercial use.
Elo’s M50 design is backed by six years of enterprise-focused Android development and leadership. For essential durability, the new M50 features Corning Gorilla Glass, MIL-STD-810G drop specification and an IP-65 rating for water and dust ingress protection.
From Mobile to Fixed POS
The M60 Pay computer can transform from a mobile to a fixed POS solution. The optional docking station, expansion module and touchscreen monitor allow your M60 Pay computer to become a fixed counter-based point-of-sale terminal.
For L1 and L2 certified applications, the Elo Payment SDK makes it easy to integrate the M60 Pay computer into the payment process flow. Elo’s own L3 certification via Elo Pay, a SaaS-based payment gateway solution, will allow businesses to set up the M60 Pay to accept payments without any coding or certification.
