Mobile Payments Today
Fitbit has launched the Fitbit Versa 2, a next generation enhancement of its Versa smartwatch line, which now includes Amazon Alexa voice command technology, a Spotify streaming music app and Fitbit Pay built into all new models of the device.
The Fitbit Pay technology will allow users to make secure payments without a mobile phone and without the need to pull out a credit or debit card. The smartwatch also works in four major public transit systems that use tap-to-pay, including the New York City OMNY pilot, TransLink in Vancouver, Transport for London and Taiwan iPass.
Did you know cashless payments benefit consumers and businesses?
The Strawhecker Group (TSG) has prepared an insightful infographic to explain the immense value both businesses and consumers get when cashless payments are used (debit and credit cards, Apple Pay, etc.).
COVID-19 has made consumers rethink how they pay out of fear of touching cash. Now more than ever, it is important to explain the benefits of cashless payments to consumers, as well as the businesses they visit. A recent TSG survey shows that nearly half of small businesses that accept cashless payments have seen consumers using or asking for these methods more often since the COVID-19 pandemic started.
So, you tell us – is the juice worth the squeeze?
