Vistaprint and PayPal have initially introduced this small business solution in the US
PayPal has teamed up with Vistaprint, the marketing and design partner to small businesses, to introduce touch-free payments.
This way, the QR Code payments will be beneficial to small businesses across the US. The touch-free payments will enable business owners to process all payments without handling credit cards or cash.
This move will prevent the spread of COVID-19 by ensuring there is zero physical contact between business owners and customers during a transaction.
To determine the efficacy of the touch-free payment method, Vistaprint surveyed 500 retail and food-service small entrepreneurs. 52% of the respondents stated they started using the feature in 2020. They also plan to keep the payment service in the long run. 42% stated that the touchless-payment methods are among the most essential payment solutions to their customers.
The new payment solution comes as the demand for touch-free payment options increases in small enterprises. Noting the effect of the pandemic on the small businesses, the move will ensure they keep their doors open amid the pandemic.
Vistaprint has worked tirelessly to meet the needs of small business enterprises. In addition, the company has expanded its production potential to produce pandemic-related products such as face masks and shields.
