The Digital Transformation of the Payments Industry

In an age where technology is rapidly evolving, the payments industry finds itself undergoing a seismic shift. Gone are the days of relying on cash or checks; instead, digital payment solutions have become standard, revolutionizing the way we transact. This shift towards digitalization has not only made payments faster, safer, and more convenient but has also opened a plethora of opportunities for businesses and consumers alike. 
 
Research shows that your revenue can increase drastically if you offer a wider choice of payment options. Consumers crave convenience, and the easier it is to pay – the more often they will purchase your goodsdon’t run the risk of missing a sale because you don’t accept digital payment methods. With projections indicating that cash transactions will dwindle to just 7% by 2032, and wallet payments including Google and Apple Pay contributing over 45% of transactions on QikServe Payments, it has never been more crucial to ensure your business offers a comprehensive suite of digital payment solutions.

The integration of checkout solutions streamlines the payment process, significantly reducing the time customers spend waiting to complete their transactions.

The Rise of Mobile Technology

At the heart of this digital transformation is the rise of mobile technology. With smartphones now ubiquitous, consumers have the power to make payments anytime, anywhere with a simple tap of their device. Mobile wallets and payment apps have surged in popularity, offering users a mobile ordering solution that is not only convenient, but also a secure way for transferring funds and making purchases on-the-go. This shift enhances the convenience of payments while improving security by reducing reliance on physical cards. As more merchants prioritize a frictionless online payment experience, it’s no surprise that 91% of consumers cite checkout satisfaction as a decisive factor in their return to a particular merchant.

Recent research from our partner Stripe, a global leader in payments infrastructure, underscores the importance of a seamless payments experience. 60% of customers admit that they will abandon their cart if checkout exceeds two minutes, despite the average checkout surpassing 3 minutes. Moreover, 85% of online users frequently abandon their purchase if their preferred payment method isn’t available. The implications are clear: checkout friction translates to lost sales and dissatisfied customers – a pitfall easily avoided. 

The emergence of order and pay at table technology is transforming the dining experience, allowing customers to browse digital menu ordering systems, place orders, and make payments without leaving their seats, thereby streamlining service and enhancing customer experience.
