As technology evolves, merchants need more payment acceptance variety to keep their clients happy.

Cashless Payments: Beneficial for Merchants & Customers

Cashless payments include any type of payment outside of paper or coin currency such as credit and debit cards, ACH, checks, mobile wallets, cryptocurrency, payment apps and buy now, pay later. Although there might be a learning curve associated with implementing these types of payment technology initially, it is well worth it for merchants to invest in it to keep customers happy and keep their business viable.

Below are some of the most important upsides to implementing cashless payments at a business:

Increase revenue – Businesses with limited payment options are almost certainly leaving income on the table. Because digital payments dominate the payments industry and are preferred by many customers, making options available should increase sales.

Reveal customer insights – Using payment technology means the ability to collect data electronically. This allows merchants to make more informed decisions on everything from inventory to loyalty programs. Merchants can link cashless transactions to customers or customer groups as well as analyze payment volume by time period or payment type which provides valuable insight into the customer base.

Provide efficiency during checkout – Popular cashless payment options are incredibly simple and fast to process. Consumers today seek out convenient and safe ways to make their purchases, and offering several options not only makes a customer more likely to purchase, but it’s also often faster than traditional payment methods.

Merchants can work with payment processing advisors to evaluate these cashless options and what makes the most sense for their business model.
