Why You Should Adopt Mobile Pay

Adding Mobile Pay to Your Repertoire

Ah, the exchange of goods and services.

It’s arguably one of the world’s oldest pastimes, and boy, it sure has changed.

With the advancements in payment processing technologies, you no longer need to prime your best chicken for trade. In fact, to make payments, all you need to do is pull out your phone.

Well, put down the chicken first, my friend, and let’s talk about how adopting Apple and Android Pay can change the way you do business as both a business owner and a consumer.

Are these applications safe?

The first concern I always hear with mobile payment applications is that of security.

Is Mobile pay safe for me and my business?

People are right to worry that their transactions could be jeopardized, or even worse, that their card information or bank accounts can be accessed. Let me clear that up right now.

Your card and/or banking information is not what actually appears on the phone. The applications create a virtual card, one that relies on a relationship between Apple/Android and banks to process payments.

So in reality, vendors receive less information from their customers than ever before. There is no entering a PIN, no typing a zip code and no sharing of card information.

In terms of safety, mobile pay is actually safer than some in-person transactions that you conduct.

What are the Benefits of Mobile Pay?

So what’s the benefit?

On top of some added security and privacy, Apple and Android Pay offer customer convenience.

The object our lives revolve around, the smartphone is with us wherever we go no matter what we are doing. That little device is not going anywhere any time soon.

The ability to simply hover your phone over a machine and never have to dig for a wallet or sign a receipt is a mark of simplicity and modernity.

And what are businesses trying to do? To make transactions, shopping, and purchasing more convenient for the consumer. 

At first glance, it feels like a novelty, but consumer reports suggest that as more vendors begin accepting Apple and Android Pay, it has the potential to become the norm.

More and more customers are reaching for their phones at the register, so adoption of these services is imperative. Early adoption of Mobile pay can help your business stay ahead of the curve and create a consistent experience at the point of sale.  

Also, Mobile Pay leads the way for customers to make more use of Mobile Loyalty Programs that your business may choose to incorporate.
