Payment kiosks are interactive, self-service terminals that allow customers to make payments without needing to interact with a human cashier. They are becoming increasingly common in a variety of businesses, from retail stores and restaurants to transportation hubs and government offices.

Here are some of the benefits of using payment kiosks:

Convenience: Kiosks are available 24/7, so customers can pay their bills or make purchases at any time.
Speed: Kiosks can process payments quickly and efficiently, which can help to reduce wait times for customers.
Accuracy: Kiosks are less prone to errors than human cashiers.
Cost-effectiveness: Kiosks can help businesses to save money on labor costs.
Data collection: Kiosks can collect data on customer transactions, which can be used to improve business operations.
Here are some of the challenges of using payment kiosks:

Cost: Kiosks can be expensive to purchase and maintain.
Technical problems: Kiosks can sometimes malfunction, which can frustrate customers.
Lack of human interaction: Some customers may prefer to interact with a human cashier.
Overall, payment kiosks offer a convenient and efficient way for customers to make payments. However, it is important to weigh the benefits and challenges of using kiosks before implementing them in a business.

Do cashless restaurants discriminate against the poor?

Fast-casual places are ditching cash for safety and efficiency. Critics say this shuts out poor people, some immigrants and those who just prefer cash.

Source: www.washingtonpost.com

The global cashless movement has reached Washington, where a growing number of fast-casual establishments and other spots are saying no to greenbacks in favor of plastic and mobile payments. Sweetgreen, the national salad chain founded by Georgetown University graduates, went cashless in most of its locations last year. Other cashless spots include a Menchie’s frozen-yogurt shop downtown, the posh Barcelona Wine Bar on 14th Street NW and the Bruery beer store at Union Market.

 

Soon, they may be breaking the law.

 

The decision to go cashless also has broader implications in the global battle between the credit-card and ATM industries.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Visa has been a major booster of the cashless movement. The credit card company in March awarded 50 businesses $10,000 each for rejecting cash payments and has released reports touting the benefits of a cashless society.

 

 
Comments: This will be a very interesting fight over the next decade.  Governments obviously want no cash, as an all electronic economy means every transaction everywhere is known to it.

The push back due to the unbanked was quite predictable.  However, when you see a country like India has gone cashless in many spots — well, if they can figure out how to do it, we should be able to figure out how to do it.  I believe even poor countries in Africa have large cashless segments now.

This really is not a battle of if, but rather when.

Dalton Utilities places payment kiosk at store

Dalton Utilities now has a payment kiosk available for customers to pay their Dalton Utilities and OptiLink bills. The kiosk is at Loa Bakery at 737 Riverbend Road, at the intersection of Walnut Avenue and Riverbend Road.

Source: www.daltondailycitizen.com

The payment kiosk, located inside Loa Bakery, will be open for the public’s use seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.

At the kiosk, customers may pay their Dalton Utilities and OptiLink bills with cash or credit card. The machine is unable to make change, so any overages will just be credited to the customer’s account to offset their next payment.

The kiosk is equipped with a scanner to read customer account numbers right from the bill to ensure proper crediting of accounts.
