How to Use Kuda SoftPos on a mobile phone – Nigeria’s multinational fintech company, Kuda, has introduced a new feature to its Kuda Business mobile app: a Kuda Bank SoftPoS (Software Point of Sale), enabling users to accept card payments from their mobile devices.
Kuda SoftPOS is a feature that allows you to accept card payments on your mobile phone. This can be a great way to accept payments from customers when you’re on the go, or if you don’t have a traditional point-of-sale (POS) terminal.
This converts smartphones and tablets into secure, convenient payment terminals (Pos machines). Payments can be used using physical or virtual cards.
Android devices with NFC modules running on version 8.0 or higher can support this feature.
Kuda Bank also added other new features to its business mobile apps such as Kuda Payroll, Sales Mode, and business registration.
In another update, Kuda Bank is discontinuing the free monthly interbank transfers for Kuda Business accounts effective from March 17, 2023.
Consequently, Kuda business accounts will now incur a ₦10 charge on every interbank fund transfer. However, Kuda personal accounts will continue to enjoy the 25 free monthly interbank funds transfer.
Recall that in 2019, Kuda introduced 25 free monthly interbank funds transfers, each of which cost an additional ₦52.50 (11 cents), which enabled customers to save about ₦15,000 (32.6USD) annually.
Three years later (2022), Kuda announced it would start charging ₦50 stamp duty on all deposits above ₦10,000.
