PAX Technology, the world’s leading manufacturer of point of sale terminal solutions, was proud to see the A920 Android SmartPOS making its first ever appearance in number 10 Downing Street last week, as part of the Poppy Appeal fundraise.

This is the Royal British Legion’s biggest campaign to support and remember those who have given their lives in battle. The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, supported the fundraising by buying a poppy, tapping his contactless card on the PAX A920 to complete the transaction. PAX encourages people to donate via the British Legion webpage.

Using the POSitive payment application provided by PAX UK and deployed in partnership with our partners for charitable organisations, the stylish looking A920 is a new-generation all-in-one device combining smartphone-like features with secure payments, allowing consumers to transact in all kinds of ways, including prevailing popular methods of contactless cards and mobile wallets.

Mark O’Flynn, Sales Director for the EMEA region at PAX commented: “We are really glad to see the Royal British Legion using PAX terminals to help fundraise their annual Poppy Appeal. We also appreciate the close collaboration with Secure Retail and their partners in implementing a secure, engaging and contactless payment solution for the Royal British Legion”.
