Star Micronics is pleased to announce that its SM-L200 mobile printer has been selected by iZettle to provide London’s licensed taxi drivers with a TfL approved card payment bundle that offers a range of key features and benefits. Following the requirement for taxi drivers to accept card and contactless payments as well as provide receipts for those payments upon request, iZettle has partnered with Star to provide the following bundle:
- iZettle Card Reader Pro Contactless
- Star SM-L200 Bluetooth receipt printer
- Card reader mount for passenger compartment
- Receipt printer mount for driver compartment
With iZettle Card Reader Pro Contactless, taxi drivers can accept all major credit cards (including American Express) as well as contactless payments through Apple Pay, Google Wallet and others. For receipting, the super compact lightweight SM-L200 Bluetooth printer from Star offers a high print speed, LCD display and 1.2m drop test capability. Beyond a low power usage, the advantages of BLE technology with this printer include simple installation given its auto pairing facility with multiple Bluetooth 4.0 Apple iOS devices.
As Annette Tarlton, Marketing Director, Star Micronics EMEA, states: “Star is delighted to be partnering with iZettle to provide London’s licensed taxi drivers with a reliable and cost effective card payment and printing bundle.”
