Convenience of Not Removing the Card
The primary advantage of the advanced tap-to-pay technology in the Wi Fold wallet is that it allows customers to make payments without the need to physically remove their card. This convenience is a significant enhancement over traditional payment methods, especially in fast-paced environments or situations where handling multiple items is impractical.
The process of finding and removing a card, waiting for authorization, and then reinserting it back into the wallet can cumulatively take a considerable amount of time. By allowing customers to simply tap their wallet, over 15 seconds can be saved per transaction. While this might seem small on an individual basis, it adds up significantly over multiple transactions and contributes to a more efficient overall experience.
Reduced Wear and Tear
Constantly removing and reinserting a card can lead to physical wear and tear. By keeping the card in the wallet during transactions, its physical condition is preserved, potentially extending the lifespan of the card. This is not just convenient for the customer but also cost-effective in the long run, as it reduces the frequency of card replacements.
The ability to make payments with just one hand is particularly advantageous in situations where the customer might be holding something in the other hand, such as groceries, mobile phone, or a childs hand. This feature enhances accessibility, making transactions more manageable for everyone, including those with physical limitations that make handling multiple items challenging.
