Judopay and Thyngs enable hospitality businesses to offer touch-free cashless payments

Tuesday 7 July 2020 12:05 CET | News

UK-based payments provider Judopay has partnered with Thyngs to offer touch-free cashless payment solutions to businesses across the hospitality sector.

According to the press release, hospitality is one of the sectors that has been majorly affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. However, following the government's green light to reopen pubs and restaurants, there is mounting pressure for these businesses to deliver safer transaction experiences for their customers. Thyngs’ technology turns any physical branded object into a point of sale using smart ‘tap and go’ technology such as QR codes and Near Field Communication (NFC). 

For hospitality businesses, this means that marketing assets such as signage, table menus, and takeaway boxes, can become instant, touch-free points of sale (POS), removing the need for a card terminal and reducing human interaction while still accepting in-person payments.

Therefore, with no additional app download needed, Thyngs and Judopay’s initiative allows customers to ‘tap’ with a smartphone or ‘scan’ a QR code using a standard phone camera and pay for items while in a queue or while remaining seated at a table. 

Furthermore, the new partnership forms part of Judopay's UK-wide campaign, KeepBritainMoving, which provides SMEs with a platform where they can access expert business advice, guidance or digital payments support, to help keep their businesses running during the outbreak.
