More and more customers are looking to complete purchases using contactless technology. Wireless Terminal Solutions’ card machines are contactless enabled using NFC technology. Near Field Technology (NFC) was invented in early 2002, and it enables short range communication between compatible devices. This requires at least one transmitting device, and another to receive the signal. NFC is another standard for wireless data transitions, meaning that there are specifications which devices have to adhere to in order to communicate with each other properly.
Recent reports stated that contactless card payments are 76% quicker than cash and 58% speedier than the traditional Chip and PIN payments. If you are in a retail setting, going contactless eliminates queues and is pivotal to keeping customers happy. Wireless Terminal Solutions’ contactless card machines are programmed to accept Google Pay. By doing so you are one step ahead of your competitors, and providing customers with a convenient quick payment solution.
Android pay currently has a limit of £30. For in-store payments up to the value of £30, hold the device near the contactless reader (no need to open a particular application). Your device will vibrate or beep, and you will receive an on screen confirmation that payment was made.
