DNA Payments And SUNMI Announce Strategic Partnership To Strengthen

DNA Payments and SUNMI have launched their partnership at this year’s Retail Technology Show in London, strengthening their presence and solution offering in the UK card payments space.

With both businesses commanding a strong presence in the Retail, Hospitality, F&B, and Stadia sectors, the new partnership ensures best-in-class, simple, unified payments for partners and merchants across the UK.

Supported by the expansion of the SUNMI team operating in the UK, DNA Payments is a critical step in their continued growth in the UK&I payments sector, being a true-omni payments provider and delivering a unified commerce platform with P2PE-certified POS devices, Ecommerce and in-app processing, on top of being a market-leading acquiring, Open Banking, APMs, and reporting service-all under one roof.


This represents an opportunity for merchants and partners to offer a full suite of payment solutions in conjunction with modern, slick, cutting-edge SUNMI Android POS devices with DNA Payments’ axept® PRO payment software.

As a group, DNA Payments has been responsible for introducing and supporting a range of payment device manufacturers in the UK&I market. It’s excited to extend its current range to support the innovative Android devices from SUNMI with its feature-rich axept® PRO payment software.

The market-leading axept® PRO payment application now supports the SUNMI P2 SmartPad, P2 Lite SE and P2 Pro devices with security via full EMV & P2PE certification, which works with DNA Payments’ acquiring platform. The new SUNMI devices are now part of the true-omni suite of solutions, allowing partners and merchants a more comprehensive range of devices to choose from.

With increased memory, improved processor speeds and modern variants of the Android OS, the SUNMI range of card payment devices offers partners and merchants more scope for running multiple applications. The form factors and robust modern designs also present different options, with SUNMI also providing a range of complete Android EPOS hardware, which means matching EPOS and POS devices with consistent components and connectivity; this should lead to seamless integrations and a consistent look and feel and experience for merchants and consumers.

Alex Green, Head of Business Development at SUNMI for the UK, Ireland, and Nordics: “We are thrilled to work with one of the UK’s most exciting and technically innovative acquirers; their approach to developing and supporting everything in-house ensures SUNMI users will benefit from the full-service offering delivered by DNA Payments.” 

JP Lips, CEO of DNA Payments: “DNA Payments offers market-appropriate solutions for our key verticals of F&B, Retail, Hospitality, and Stadia. The SUNMI range complements that strategy of simple unified payments, with flexible devices designed to meet these challenging environments while supporting the multi-app solutions to solve the complex problems these sectors require.”
