Crypto Point-Of-Sale terminal by NOWPayments

NOWPayments, a crypto payment gateway, has launched a Point-of-Sale terminal which allows customers to pay with crypto in brick-and-mortar stores. This solution is purely web-based, so companies only need a phone, laptop, or PC to issue an invoice with a QR code for their customers. Moreover, this solution allows businesses to accept more than 150 different cryptocurrencies, including stablecoins and meme coins.
