How to reduce your exposure with contact-free payments

The impact of COVID-19 on how businesses operate is being felt in every industry, some more than others. For lots of businesses this is completely changing the way they operate, the product they offer, and how they interact with customers. Businesses that are able to adapt will have the best chance of surviving this crisis.

Many lesson-based businesses like personal trainers, dance studios, and martial arts classes, have transitioned to online training and videos. Payments made in person by exchanging cash or cards aren’t possible anymore as owners don’t want to put themselves, their employees, or customers at risk. They need to find a fast and easy way to take safer, contact-free payments.

Pay Advantage offers a number of unique solutions that are helping businesses to adapt and continue trading. We have contact-free payments that perform just like tap and go, giving you a response in seconds. 

Create your Payment Request, choose how you want to share it (SMS, email, social media), and then the customer completes the payment safely from their phone or computer. Businesses can also take these payments while on the phone to their customers or from a safe distance.

One added benefit of Payment Requests is that it allows businesses to be creative and send out all of their payment reminders first thing in the morning. They get confirmation of payments throughout the day, and it also lets them know who will be attending.
