Poppy — A Point of Sale System Built for the Future
An introduction to the payment system built on the Blockchain
-Clarified language throughout
What is Poppy?
Poppy is a payment processor designed to transport digital currencies into the retail space. By leveraging modern point of sale systems, Poppy will facilitate a fully integrated retail sales experience to the Blockchain.
Merchants and retailers wishing to enter the digital currency space can effortlessly do so by simply updating their existing point of sale hardware, and installing the Poppy app, effectively lowering the barrier to entry.
Its blending of the Blockchain and point of sale platforms will allow Poppy to offer an agile, integrated, and dynamic alternative to traditional payment systems, while delivering a recognizable retail experience to customers.
Built on the Blockchain, Poppy benefits from the speed and robustness of the network. For example, TRON features improved TPS, which has surpassed Bitcoin and Ethereum, making it an efficient network on which to deploy the time-sensitive payment system.
Additionally, the Blockchain enables Poppy merchants to accept digital assets for purchasing items while also reducing the transaction fees of traditional credit-based payment methods. In-store and online purchasing options, and lowered barrier of entry, will facilitate the Blockchain to hundreds of thousands of merchants and retailers, and introduce the purchasing power of the digital currency community.
Poppy drives its success through its novel partnerships and coalescing of disparate technologies.
We are excited to leverage Clover at launch to develop an integrated payment processor. Clover is a versatile and feature-rich system that offers a variety of sophisticated point of sale and payment solutions, accepts multitude forms of payments, supports different types of businesses, and has a global reach with one million devices shipped.
Through our custom application in the Clover App Market, Poppy will be uniquely positioned to support businesses of all types and size around the world out of the box. Poppy will exist as a free-to-install, and easy to use app on the Clover App Market that merchants and retailers can set up on their Clover POS systems with a click of a button.
Poppy will enable customers to interact with retail in ways that do not currently exist in POS platforms today by seamlessly integrating with the Blockchain.
In addition to accepting traditional payment methods like Visa, MasterCard, and cash, merchants and retailers will be able to accept digital currency payments for goods and services on the Blockchain using digital wallets, Troncard, and the popular social media payment system, Seedit.
Troncard is a credit card-style payment card that allows purchases and transactions at the point of sale utilizing TRX and TRON tokens. It is designed to securely initiate digital payments using an easy-to-use, familiar payment method to make retail purchases at Poppy terminals. The card will include features such as a 3D barcode for easy reference to public address associated with TRON wallets.
At launch, Troncard will have use cases including acting as a wallet for TRX and TRON tokens, as a secure method of payment at Poppy terminals, and as an simple and secure public address reference for p2p transfers.
Since its launch in late July 2018 on Telegram, and weeks later on Twitter, Seedit has seen explosive adoption and growth week after week. At this writing, Seedit has transacted almost 26MM TRX with over 747K unique transactions.
Poppy will leverage this rapid growth and engagement to bridge the point of sale and social media divide. Vendors may interface with their community by leveraging Seedit to provide discounts, complimentary items, “gift cards”, and rewards on the Blockchain, always visible to the POS.
Integration with Seedit will facilitate a method of engaging customers on social media and fostering relationships outside the normal place of business thus bridging the gap between vendor, customer service, and social media to create a connected retail experience.
Poppy serves a changing economy and transcends existing payment systems by facilitating digital currency payments.
Since their development, the ability to pay for everyday purchases quickly and effortlessly has been the goal of many digital currencies. To this day, there are few to none that have succeeded at allowing them to freely transact in the real world. Merchants and retailers continue to be unable to accept digital currency payments in-store or online.
Poppy is designed to solve that issue by bridging fiat and digital payments, utilizing digital currencies with additional Visa, MasterCard and cash payment support, offering a diverse functionality in terms of its payment and redemption platform. Its innovative utilization of the Blockchain, modern point of sale systems, and Troncard gives merchants and retailers the freedom to execute digital payments quickly and efficiently all over the world and online.
