Let’s Talk Pay-at-the-Table
With the EMV migration picking up steam in the US, the world of full-service restaurants, stadiums, and other hospitality environments are looking to a new payment solution – Pay-at-the-Table. With this solution, servers are able to accept credit/debit cards and mobile wallets right at the point of service. Whether it is at tableside or curbside, servers are able to print receipts on the spot without having to return at the POS station to process the payment. Pay-at-the-Table is being used around the world and has provided many benefits to both restaurants owners and consumers. It has helped restaurants increase profitability by moving diners more quickly through the restaurant for increased table turnover. It provides consumers with multiple options to pay either using their credit/debit cards or mobile wallets such as Apple Pay®.
Learn how Pay-at-the-Table can help your business – stop by our booth #756 at HITEC 2016 and talk to our payment experts.
