Cloud-based point-of-sale specialist Vend has announced a partnership with mobile payment provider iZettle.

Competition launched to find final company to trade from the shop
Mobile payment provider iZettle is creating a ‘12 Hour Store’ in central London that’ll give six small businesses the opportunity of trading from one of the world’s busiest shopping districts.
It’s opening a pop-up shop at 36 South Molton Street from 27th October until 1st November 2014. Each company will be able to trade for a single 12-hour period from 9am until 9pm, with their credit and debit card payments powered by iZettle’s mobile-based technology.
