UTC RETAIL announces partnership with Pockyt Payments Platform


Enables Contactless Payment for Consumers using Venmo, PayPal, AliPay and other Popular Digital Wallets.

Rochester, NY, January 10, 2023: UTC RETAIL, a full-service provider of retail solutions to the specialty retail marketplace, including software, hardware, and professional services, announces a new partnership with the Pockyt Payments Platform, enabling contactless payment for consumers using Venmo, PayPal, AliPay and other Popular Digital Wallets.  The Pockyt Platform is now fully integrated with UTC RETAIL’s ReadySTORE POS Solution and is currently available to all customers for no additional license fee. 

“We are thrilled to announce this important strategic partnership with Pockyt” said Sam Villanti, President and CEO for UTC RETAIL.  “As Digital Wallets continue to become mainstream methods of payment, it is important that retailers provide a simple, seamless and effective way for their customers to pay beyond the traditional methods of credit, debit and cash.”

The integration between ReadySTORE POS and Pockyt requires no additional or specialized payment device and is executed by reading a QR code from the consumers digital wallet application.  Support for payment via digital wallets complements the other currently supported payment options in ReadySTORE that include Apple Pay, Google Pay, credit, debit and cash, giving consumers complete control of their preferred tender choice.

“We are honored to be partnering with UTC Retail, to enable their retailers the ability to accept digital wallets directly from within their ReadySTORE POS,” said Mason Lin, CEO and founder of Pockyt. “Our mission is to facilitate payment at the point of discovery, while removing payment friction for both domestic and cross-border payments.”

UTC RETAIL will be highlighting the Pockyt Payments Platform and all related products and services at NRF 2023 – Retail’s Big Show from January 15-17, 2023.  You can find UTC RETAIL in booth number 5520.
