GoPago

GoPago is a total commerce solution, comprised of a point-of-sale system with a fully integrated mobile payments platform. GoPago LIVE connects merchants with consumers, enabling interaction throughout the entire transaction, and after with rewards capability. GoPago LIVE is delivered to merchants as a turn-key solution: all the hardware (tablet, receipt printer, cashbox, credit card reader), cloud-based software, payment processing, 4G LTE data connectivity, and a streamlined interface for mobile and in-store purchases. Merchants can access real-time data analytics straight from the tablet or via a web portal, empowering merchants to act on business insights anytime, anywhere.

GoPago was originally conceived in 2007 when founder and CEO Leo Rocco missed Barry Bonds’ record-breaking home run while he was waiting in line at a concessions stand. Rocco believed there was a need to bridge the gap between merchants and customers.
