You don’t have to be a payments expert to sell Sphere payment solutions. But it can help to know the latest buzzwords and trends! Here’s an important payment trend to know: Contactless.

Contactless has two main definitions:

1) Accepting a payment from a NFC (near field communication) credit card or mobile device. This is where you hold the credit card or mobile device near the credit card terminal and it transmits a signal with card data to process the transaction.

2) Storing a credit card, debit card or bank account information on file, so that the patient or consumer can use this payment during their next visit.

A recent study found that 32% of consumers would choose contactless payments, like Apple Pay & Google Pay if offered.

Sphere offers payment terminals that support NFC/Contactless transactions. So, if a customer asks about this functionality, know that it is available.
