We are delighted to announce the release of Softpay version 2.0, now available for download on the Google Play Store. With this release, we have focused on developing various integration options, enabling you to seamlessly integrate payments in your preferred manner.

In response to valuable customer feedback, we have introduced CloudSwitch, a new integration feature that provides an alternative approach to utilizing our SoftPOS solution. With CloudSwitch, there is no longer a requirement to have an Android mPOS application on your device.

This feature enables you to have use cases where, for instance, a Windows-based POS can initiate contactless payment on your Android phone. Moreover, with Softpay 2.0, we enhanced support for browser-based applications.
