After piloting Tap to Phone in more than thirty countries, Visa today announced its first Tap to Phone pilot in the United States.
Visa launched its first US pilot scheme for the solution in Washington DC this week and will go on to distribute the technology to small businesses in Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles and Miami as part of a “commerce in a box” initiative.
„Visa’s Tap to Phone technology turns sellers’ Android based phones into point-of-sale acceptance devices, providing an on-ramp to the digital economy with the ease of downloading an app,” the card network says.
In partnership with the minority-owned, mobile smartphone technology and solution provider, ZmBIZI, the first U.S. pilot program will provide ZmBIZI’s Z1 devices with Tap to Phone capabilities to 50 Black-owned SMBs in Washington D.C.
According to new data from Visa’s State of U.S. Black Women Entrepreneurship 20211, entrepreneurs surveyed in Washington, D.C. noted that if they had additional funding, they would invest more in technology (35%) or new products and services (31%).
„Commerce in a box features a curated selection of offers, discounts and bundles from Visa’s Authorize.net and Visa partners designed to help SMBs with what they need to move their business forward digitally – from accepting digital payments and building an eCommerce site to marketing to their audience in new ways and providing marketing online tools to run and protect their business,” Visa says.
„Suntem in top 3 european pentru adoptia platilor digitale in transportul public, dupa Marea Britanie si Polonia, si in top 10 mondial in penetrarea tehnologiei contactless in general.”
