Dirty Receipts: The Latest Case Against Using Paper Receipts

Over the last few weeks we have seen many companies come together to build innovative services for those affected by the current Covid-19 crisis.

It’s a known fact that minimizing the human to human contact will have a significant impact on the virus spreading further, this also impacts physical objects like payment terminals. Contactless payment limits across the world have been increased as a way to stop the spread of the virus. Shoppers are now able to pay for larger purchases at checkout without having to touch the chip and pin terminal, however paper receipts will still be handed over from the cashier to the shopper. This is another contact point which could spread the virus.

For those merchants that must keep open during the crisis, convenience stores, supermarkets, pharmacies or gas stations, it is important to keep physical interaction to an absolute minimum.

The ReceiptHero solution allows for digital receipts to flow freely between point of sale terminals to customers without the need of handing over a physical receipt. This removes the risk of contamination and streamlines the checkout process. Customers can get out of the store as quickly as possible, without needing to wait for the receipt to be printed.
