How Retail Stays Contactless
July 2020, Lynne Gardner
Even though we are starting to move to a decline in Covid-19, the habits we adopted will not. Life in a post-Covid environment for Brick and Mortar will retain their more health-conscious options for payment including “touchless retail.” People may want to look at goods in stores, but the first place they are now trained to look for offers and product, is on their smartphones.
When engagement for customers is stronger than ever through phones, your mobile presence must be equally so. If you don’t currently have a dedicated app for your business, making your buying community more inter-active and secure, you should consider moving to one. The use of mobile payment systems (wallets) is now more important than ever and is where engagement of your customer begins.
The post-Covid environment will see a demand for payment-at-table used by several other countries, too. The US lags behind Canada and the UK in adopting touchless at-table POS for restaurant dining, whether indoor or outdoor. Your smartphone or your chip card only require “wanding” over the device and contactless payment is made enabling a more secure transaction when you do not have to give up your actual bank card to your server.
