FreedomPay and Grab Enhance Partnership with Touchless Commerce
The FreedomPay and Grab partnership gives more choice, safety and security to consumers at points of payment acceptance.
September 29, 2020 – FreedomPay, a global leader in Next Level Commerce™ has expanded on an existing partnership with Grab in the U.S. and Europe to deliver touchless commerce solutions across Grab kiosks and BYOD offering. With a full integration across multiple Point of Sale systems, Grab’s BYOD platform proves ease of implementation across a variety of hospitality markets in airports, casinos, table service restaurants and more.
As contactless and touchless payment methods become increasingly popular by both merchants and consumers to protect personal heath and payment safety, FreedomPay and Grab now enhance the consumer experience through FreedomPay’s Touchless Commerce program. Guests can now order and pay with their own devices (BYOD) using NFC and QR technology and mobile wallets including Apple Pay and Google Pay. Guests will no longer need to handle a physical menu, checks, or payment devices.
“As touchless payments become a priority for merchants, the FreedomPay and Grab partnership provides access to contactless payment methods with a swift and simple integration,” said Chris Kronenthal, President & CTO at FreedomPay. “Grab’s enablement of FreedomPay’s Touchless Commerce program will allow more merchants across hospitality to offer safe and secure ways for their guests to order and pay.”
“With a big shift expected from card present to card not present transactions, Grab’s partnership with FreedomPay enables merchants to offer a contactless way to order and pay keeping guest’s health and safety at the forefront,” said Jeff Livney, CXO at Grab. “We are excited to provide this new payment option to our hospitality partners across the US and Europe.”
