CONTACTLESS LETS YOU SERVE MORE CUSTOMERS

What's the simplest way to increase your profits? Well, the answer is simply to serve more customers. It's faster than cash and faster than traditional payment cards. For you, that means significantly more potential sales each day and, for your customers, a more pleasant and valued experience.

SPEED AND CONVENIENCE SATISFIES CUSTOMERS

Customers love the convenience that "tapping" affords. After all, they expect the most hassle-free, positive customer experience. That's just what contactless was designed for. There's no need to carry cash. No signing required for purchases $50 and below*. And no need to hand over their cards. Everyday purchases are faster, easier and more secure. What's not to love?

YOUR CUSTOMERS MAY SPEND MORE

Without being limited by the amount of cash they have on hand, your customers can buy what they truly want. Close to 76% of contactless transactions are less than $50, indicating that contactless is a very attractive alternative to cash.**
