Technology firm Intelligent Point of Sale is eyeing a surge in demand for contactless payments after winning deals to roll out its mobile till system at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

As well as Underbelly venues, the company’s kit will be deployed across a number of kiosks and cafes around George Square and Princes Street Gardens.

Co-founder Robin Knox said: “The Festival is exactly the kind of event where speed of service becomes critical and contactless payment is so easy it can make all the difference. With the arrival of Apple Pay, too, many retailers and bars will be forced into adopting contactless systems, because their customers demand it.”

In June, Intelligent Point of Sale raised £550,000 from angel syndicate 24Haymarket and the East of Scotland Investment Fund to expand its iPad-based mobile payment system to customers around the world.
