Contactless payment solutions accelerated by COVID-19
The COVID-19 outbreak has profoundly impacted our world. It has accelerated the shift to touchless technology, and more specifically, digital payments. An increasing number of businesses and consumers are adopting digital methods to spend, send, and receive money. These digital payments have helped reduce the risk of person-to-person and person-to-POS spread of the disease -and they’re here to stay. As more businesses begin accepting digital payments and consumers become more comfortable using them, experts predict that touchless payments are the wave of the future.
Why shift to contactless payments?
Contactless payments make life easier for both service providers and consumers. Not only are they fast and convenient, but they help keep track of transactions. They are also safe and highly secure as they are embedded with multiple layers of security to protect against fraudulent activity.
In the wake of COVID-19, touchless technology is key to preventing germ transmission. Consumers are reconsidering their use of cash and the shift to digital payments is growing at a rapid pace. A survey by Payments Canada found that about 62 percent of Canadians are using less cash and 42 percent say they avoid shopping where contactless payments are not accepted.
