Although it is taking a little longer than expected, the truth is that mobile payments are going to be the most used way of paying in the future and, moreover, there is not much left for it. The case is that different tests are being carried out to verify their effectiveness and, for example, the Starbucks company. We tell you what he has done.
What has decided to make the famous firm that has coffee shops in almost every country in the world is the following — in one of its establishments in the city of Seattle has prohibited payment with cash. And, therefore, it is only possible to use credit cards or payments with the mobile including platforms such as Apple Pay, Samsung Pay or Android Pay, except for the clear tips.
The results are being quite positive for the firm, as it has proven that operations are carried out more quickly and comfortably, which benefits a higher turnover of customers and an increase in consumption. Therefore, not paying with cash for anything is a negative thing, as it has been pointed out for a long time. In what has to do with customers, as there is always everything since in the surveys conducted by Starbucks there are those who are really happy with this decision and others who do not understand it especially well and who wish to continue using the cash.
Starbucks: mobile payments are the future
The truth is that once you check how secure and effective they are a platform like Samsung Pay or Android Pay, it does not take long to get used to using mobile payments using NFC technology with existing dataphones they are compatible with own credit card contact technology. Personally, for a long time, I have only used the wallet to carry documentation or some type of paper since I can always pay with my smartphone.
The company has indicated that if the results go as they do now it does not rule out that progressively the same decision is made in other Starbucks coffee shops. In addition, Starbucks has made it clear that this will not mean the reduction of the staff it has contracted.
