Contactless Payments on Highway Signpost. As we have already announced in our news column, solution to pay tips by a bank card while paying the bill was implemented in Čili restaurants chain at the beginning of this year. More news in payment area is expected this fall when the first contactless bank payment card in Lithuania will be issued.
This innovation ensures more convenient and faster customer service as contactless payment cards are used without inserting them into the card reader. Moreover, for low-value transactions PIN entering is not required. At the same time, contactless payments are as safe as using chip cards.
New electronic card readers that can accept contactless payments are already being installed at our clients’ stores. EPS LT software enables to read different types of contactless cards –payment, loyalty, fleet, etc. As an example, Rimi customers who have new contactless loyalty cards are already using contactless technology in RIMI retail chain stores. In order to use loyalty card, it is enough to approach it to the card reader. Compared with the magnetic card reading, this is a faster and more convenient way of using the card for both the customer and the cashier.
