Adopting Contact Free Payments to Practice Safe Social Distancing

With COVID-19 and evolving health and physical distancing guidance, payments are top of mind for both consumers and businesses, seeking comfort, safety and speed at checkout. According to the National Institutes of Health, the virus that causes COVID-19 can live on plastic like credit cards and payment terminals for up to 3 days.

As you make plans to re-open your business and look for ways to improve safety for your customers and staff, we ask that you consider upgrading to “Contact Free” payments for your business.

In contrast to contactless payments, contact free payments require no touch and can be made from a safe physical distance. Perk Hero enables merchants to accept contact free payments through both its pay by QR or pay by photo technology.

In addition to the need for a pay-from-table and order-from table in restaurants and cafes, we see a need for contact free payments in multiple verticals including:

  • Dental Clinics
  • Medical Professionals
  • Retail Stores
  • Health and Beauty

COVID-19 is making contact free payments no longer an option, but a necessity. In addition to new sanitation guidelines and physical distancing signage, innovative technologies will play an important role in improving staff and customer safety. Perk Hero is here to help small businesses get set up in a post-COVID world.
