We’re excited to announce that we have garnered top honors at the 2013 PYMNTS.com Innovator Awards for the category of Best POS Transformation. PYMNTS.com, the leading platform for news and content related to the latest in payments innovation, recognized Groupon for two of our merchant solutions: Groupon Payments, a convenient way for merchants to accept credit cards at the guaranteed lowest overall rates, and Breadcrumb, an easy-to-use, powerful and affordable iPad restaurant POS system.

Winners were selected across 16 categories by a panel of judges with vast expertise in payments and point of sale innovations. Finalists received their awards at the 2013 PYMNTS.com Innovator Awards Dinner on March 21, 2013 at Harvard University.
