Contactless transactions saw more than 40% growth worldwide in the first quarter of the year, according to MasterCard. If restaurants and retailers want to encourage a customer to consume, they should be ready for changeable payment methods and take some measures to embrace contactless and clean payment.   


How should the Catering & Retail industry embrace contactless and clean payment? Different solutions should be taken for different scenes from convenience stores to quick-service restaurants or full-service restaurants.


1. Pay at Table

It's a great idea for restaurants that want to offer a contactless payment method for their customers. Guests can online order food at restaurant’s app by themselves, and the bill will be automatically associated with their phone. After finishing dining, they only need to show payment code to the server, so there is no reason for a server to touch the guest's card or cash.
