So I have had this project in prototype phase since December. It looks like Stellar adoption is taking off and I should finalize what I have started and continue through the next phases.
What this project aims to provide is a gateway between Point of Sale and Stellar payments. I have years of POS experience, and have a early startup working in the Cafe industry.
NoughtPay aims to help Cafes, restaurants, florest's and bakeries (many other) to advertise, calculate and process Stellar Payments.
A standalone web page that can run on a tablet (will look into App if successful)
This can be on display where payments are made and advertise Stellar and the store.
Everything stored in browser
Store stellar account
Example item and price (eg Latte $2.50) (optional)
Discount % (optional)
* Store Image / Promotion
The default display will promote the store, and promote they take Stellar payments.
The page will show the latest currency conversion between Lumens
If selected, will show how much the example item costs in Lumens
If selected, will show the discounted amount for using Stellar
The tablet will then allow the store to enter a transaction value, it will convert it from the local currency into Lumens and then display a QR Code with the amount included. The only wallet I have found is Stargazer that supports the amount interfaces (good idea for wallet creators).
Still working on this, but the processor will then wait for the amount to arrive and display a success message.
The tablet will also promote how people can sign up for a Stellar account. Will need to work with a Wallet provider, and redirect to them including instructions.
Integrate with Cloud POS providers. Already talking with a provider and I have experience integrating with POS companies.
This will then allow the payment amount to be sent from POS to tablet, display QR Code, await payment and respond.
Still fleshing this out. Would like to encourage Stellar adoption and provide a loyalty program. Customers can earn lumens, even for fiat purchases. Would like to lock the value to the store, so not sure if this is possible yet. Sort of a loyalty/IOU.
Complete sign up process for stores, more back-end integrations, more features/reporting, look into anchors for fiat ...
Customer app/wallet Be awesome to see all stores using application, wallet balance, NFC, maybe provide pre-order and pickup?
Would love some feedback!
