What is DashPay POS?
DashPay POS is a free mobile point-of-sale app designed to run on mobile platforms (Android, iOS, Windows Phone), desktop platforms (Linux, macOS, Windows), and standalone hardware terminals. This project is designed for merchants to be able to accept Dash quickly, easily, and securely. In order to further adoption of Dash we need to make it easy for merchants to accept Dash as a form of payment. This system will enable them to do so.

-What is the objective?
This project addresses a basic need of Dash - adoption. This project will be a tool to help merchants accept dash easily once they’ve decided to participate in the Dash ecosystem. Not only will this help those who have decided this, but it may sway others who would like to, but think it is too difficult.
The objective of this project is to reduce the complexity for merchants willing to accept Dash as payment, and to create a great experience for customers wanting to purchase with Dash.
-Why use this instead of a mobile wallet?
One of the main reasons a merchant would use this app over the standard mobile wallet would be to have an experience they are familiar with. It has been designed to be very closely related to credit card processing machines in this respect.
The main reason however, besides ease of use and familiarity, is the fact that this terminal is not a wallet. In fact, it only generates the address and payment requests to a wallet that the merchant controls on a different machine. This means that there is no control of the coins from the POS software. This situation works especially well when you have employees that may access this machine as well.
Plus, keeping your private keys offline is always a bonus!
