Cashless society prompts new smartpay app

A new smartpay app could make it easier for small businesses to collect payment from customers without having to set up a till.

The New Zealand-based company which designed the app says it is vital in an increasingly cashless society.

"We call it till-to-go," Smartpay chief executive Bradley Gerdis says.

"It's a free cash register app that anyone can download and use on an iPad instead of buying a large expensive cash register system."

And Mr Gerdis says the app is easy to use.
