Colleges and Universities Welcome Back Students with Touchless Commerce

Colleges and Universities are beginning to welcome students back to campus. Now, more than ever, safety is a top priority. While most top colleges and universities are outfitting their classrooms, dining halls, bookstores and stadiums to accommodate social distancing, many are going a step further by updating outdated commerce technology to vastly improve the safety of the ordering and checkout experience.

With this in mind, FreedomPay is partnering with top fintech service providers and ISV’s to introduce its Touchless Commerce program. The program helps merchants identify solutions that minimize contact during the checkout process. Touchless Commerce solutions provide colleges and universities with a payment experience that is both safe and secure; and may include the use of contactless cards, mobile apps, Apple Pay, Google Pay, eCommerce, and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device).

Additionally, FreedomPay provides merchants with the ability to promote touchless payment acceptance right on the device screen. This encourages adoption and underscores a commitment to safety, as students and faculty don’t have to physically press any buttons or swipe a card in order to pay, reducing potential harmful exposure to COVID-19.

North Carolina State University is taking their commerce solutions and campus safety to the Next Level with FreedomPay’s Touchless Commerce program. Students and faculty making purchases at NC State will be instantly presented with contactless payment acceptance messaging right at the point of sale, encouraging a safer, and swifter, way to pay.

“NC State is looking forward to welcoming students back to campus, but with that comes the responsibility of keeping our students and faculty safe,” said Chris Dunham, Systems Administrator at North Carolina State University. “With FreedomPay’s Touchless Commerce program, students can pay safely through a series of touchless and contactless methods and will also be reminded of these options right at the point of payment.”
