    Key Highlights
    • Prior to the implementation of EMV standards, mPOS relied mainly on simple magnetic stripe card readers (dongles), which offered – and continue to offer in some countries – a considerable cost advantage relative to conventional POS.
    • EMV mPOS devices are 5–10 times more expensive than mag-stripe dongles. This makes mPOS less attractive for low-income merchants.
    • Cash costs are often unclear to smaller merchants, while large retailers tend to benefit from more efficient cash management.
    • mPOS allows retailers to better adapt to seasonal peaks, as it is more flexible in terms of terminal activation and deployment than conventional POS.
    • mPOS customization may be less appealing for large merchants, as many can afford to develop tailored solutions that rely on conventional POS.
