As retailers work to bring customers back into physical stores, they’re quickly implementing the latest safety measures. Outside of the obvious recommendations, like use of facemasks, disinfectants, and social distancing markers, retailers are investing in contactless payment technology to keep customers safe.
Banks like Chase, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America were already working to drive adoption of contactless technology before the coronavirus pandemic struck. Now, major companies like Disney are getting in on the action as well. Contactless payments were recently listed as one of the limited-contact enhancements Disney plans to implement as it re-opens its theme parks to the public.
