Understanding contactless – Everything you need to know for your business

Understanding contactless – Everything you need to know for your business

Contactless is the next step in the smart payments journey, with transaction times reduced to less than a second, and its use is booming with more than 36million contactless cards in circulation in the UK.

Major high street names such as Boots, Marks & Spencer, WH Smith, McDonalds, Costa, Greggs and Wilkinsons have all embraced the technology of ‘tap and go’.

However, you need to know what it means for your business, how it works and what the benefits are.

That’s why Handepay have compiled this definitive guide to contactless payments, available for you to download for free.

Handepay’s guide covers how the technology works, how transactions are processed, safety issues, costs and future developments. It also includes a real-life testimonial from one retailer who has adopted contactless in his store.

Andy Macauley, Chief Operating Officer for Handepay, comments: “As part of our drive to help our customers grow their businesses, we want everyone to know the facts about this rapidly expanding technology. The public will soon expect to be able to use their contactless cards everywhere, so businesses cannot afford to be left behind.”
