COCONUT CREEK, FL--(Marketwired - October 17, 2013) - SoftTouch LLC, developer of point-of-sale and management solutions for restaurants, announced today its support for Bitcoin payments in its flagship product, SoftTouch POS.
Capitalizing on the explosion in popularity of Bitcoin, SoftTouch POS now provides an integrated solution for merchants that want to accept the virtual currency. The integration approach used by SoftTouch POS allows merchants to accept Bitcoin for any transaction mode including counter sales, bars, drive-thru, dining and delivery.
Bitcoin offers significant advantages to merchants including lower transaction fees than credit cards, and worldwide adoption, which makes it an attractive currency for international travelers. Moreover, Bitcoin payments are not subject to chargebacks like credit card transactions.
Often referred to as "digital cash," Bitcoin is not controlled by a central bank or government. It is typically carried on a mobile device or stored in the cloud using an application called a Bitcoin wallet. SoftTouch POS uses a third-party payment gateway to facilitate the transfer of Bitcoin from the consumer to the merchant.
SoftTouch, LLC has been developing comprehensive restaurant software solutions since 2002 and sells its products through a value added reseller network in the U.S. and Canada.
