Contactless payments use short-range wireless technology to make secure payments between a contactless card or payment-enabled device and a contactless-enabled checkout terminal. When customers tap their card or device near the Contactless Symbol, the payment is sent for authorization.

WHY Should Your Business Go Contactless?

Across the globe, safety and ease-of-use are top priority for both business owners and customers, resulting in increased demand for Contactless Payments.

In a global consumer study conducted by Mastercard,

  • 51% of Americans are now using some form of Contactless Payments
    • Tap-To-Go Credit Cards
    • Mobile Wallets
  • Nearly 8 in 10 participants say they use contactless payments
  • Contactless transactions grew twice as fast as non-contactless transactions in the grocery and drug store categories, between February and March 2020

HOW Can Your Business Go Contactless?

Contactless options for on-site payments will play a crucial role in the reopening of physical stores. Make sure you have a contactless-enabled payment terminal on site and encourage customers to pay with Apple Pay, Google Pay, and contactless credit cards.
