Contactless payments continue to grow
Friday May 13, 2022
It doesn’t seem too long ago that cash was king; many retailers wouldn’t, or couldn’t, accept credit cards or if they did, the minimum spend would be eyewatering.
Over recent years, the switch to a cashless society has gained momentum and with the emergence of Covid in 2019, buying behaviours changed across the globe, with the acceleration of different payment options and the move away from cash.
With a prediction by analysts that by 2023, Sweden will become the first cashless society, businesses that are planning now for an entirely cashless society will be the ones sitting pretty in the not-too-distant future. Cashless promises lower costs, provides better security for consumers and is more convenient.
During the Covid pandemic, in the US, contactless payments grew by more than 100% year-on-year for products such as groceries and pharmacy items and it became common for retailers to only accept cashless payments.
Businesses must now learn what payment options their customers prefer and ascertain the technologies they’ll need to live up to their expectations. It will not come as any surprise to learn that this increase in cashless spending has made an impact on the requirements of thermal rolls for businesses. Credit card terminals, EPOS, PDQ and chip and pin machines all require paper rolls to function, and it is important for businesses to find a reliable and trusted supplier that can keep up with their demand for thermal rolls.
