The coronavirus pandemic is fast-tracking the trend toward a cashless economy as the fear of handling paper money contaminated with COVID-19 has led to a decline in the use of physical cash. Studies have shown that coronavirus can remain infectious for weeks on coins and paper money, making it clear that cashless payments are necessary rather than a nice to have - doing nothing is no longer an option.
Customers now expect the availability of cashless and contactless payment options in your venue, allowing them to skip the lines and minimize contact with people and high-touch surfaces. They will have a newfound appreciation for social connection (from a safe distance) and will not want to touch cash, coins, papers, anything that can transmit viruses. This acts as a forcing function for our industry to become contactless overnight.
Integrating a cashless payment solution opens your business up to a world of opportunity. Not only does it eliminate the risks associated with circulating coins and tokens, having a cashless business solution enables businesses to increase operational efficiencies and profitability.
