LevelUp Integrates With pcAmerica to Bring Mobile Payments to More Locations

pcAmerica, an award-winning retail and restaurant point of sale (POS) software developer, today announced an agreement to integrate the LevelUp mobile payment and loyalty solution into its Restaurant Pro Express and Cash Register Express POS software. This agreement gives more than 50,000 restaurants, liquor stores and convenience stores another way to accept mobile payments and market to their customers. The integration will make it easier, faster and more seamless than ever before for merchants using pcAmerica to accept LevelUp transactions.

LevelUp can now be integrated into the POS of any retail store or restaurant using pcAmerica. Once LevelUp is integrated into the POS, setting up and transacting with LevelUp is incredibly simple. Just like any other tender type, LevelUp transactions get logged alongside other credit card and cash transactions, making it easier to balance the register at closing. LevelUp's deep analytics from customer campaigns are also integrated into the merchant's existing POS, making it much easier to track customer purchase habits and loyalty over time.

"pcAmerica is all about giving our merchants the option to accept any payment type or loyalty program they need to build their businesses," said David Gosman, CEO, pcAmerica. "Many of our customers were requesting the LevelUp integration because it makes transactions more seamless, so we were eager to make this happen. Merchants love how LevelUp helps them attract and retain consumers, and we're open to doing whatever it takes to make the LevelUp experience even better for them."

As part of the integration, the pcAmerica POS software provides retailers with the option to supply LevelUp with detailed, interpretable SKU-level data, which opens the door for even more customized LevelUp campaigns in the future. For example, the data provides tremendous opportunity for brand-funded campaigns, as well as merchant-funded campaigns for specific products, such as a burger restaurant giving away free fries with the purchase of a burger.

"LevelUp believes that integrating with POS providers such as pcAmerica will help us build a truly mainstream mobile payment network," said Christina Dorobek, VP of partner development at LevelUp. "pcAmerica's customers are adopting technology quickly and looking for ways to build more sustainable relationships with consumers. We're looking forward to helping even more pcAmerica locations build their businesses by accepting LevelUp!"
