Recently, we attended an event aimed to increase the use of contactless payment technologies within the charity sector. We were invited due to our teams recent involvement on a project with Clear Channel and Cancer Research UK, in which we created an interactive payment machine for public use.
This innovative payment solution allows users to access it through the shop window. The payment system uses a through-glass RFID reader. As well as the integration of a 55 inch high bright LCD screen, which allows the public to make low denomination payments 24 hours a day.
With fewer people using cash, it is important for charities to start looking at innovative ways to collect donations – with digital payment machines being an excellent example. The event was a great open forum for charities, suppliers and banks to discuss new ideas and exciting new possibilities for the future.
