International POS printer manufacturer Star Micronics is pleased to announce that its SM-L200 mobile printer has been selected by Payleven to provide London’s licensed taxi drivers with a TfL-approved all-in-one payment bundle. Following the requirement for taxi drivers to accept card and contactless payments as well as provide receipts for those payments upon request, Payleven has partnered with Star to provide the following bundle that is compatible with TX taxi models:
- Contactless and Chip & PIN card reader
- Star SM-L200 Bluetooth receipt printer
- Card reader mount for passenger compartment
- Printer mount for driver compartment
- Power converter for printer
- 20 receipt rolls
The Payleven solution offers an easy to install bundle that accepts all credit and debit cards. To provide receipts, the compact lightweight SM-L200 Bluetooth printer from Star offers a high print speed, LCD display and 1.2m drop test capability. Its low power usage and ability to auto pair with multiple Apple iOS and Android devices are key features of the SM-L200.
As Annette Tarlton, Marketing Director, Star Micronics EMEA, states: “Star is delighted to be working with Payleven to provide London’s licensed taxi drivers with a reliable and cost effective all-in-one payment bundle.”
