Brady’s Spar in Mulhuddart, Dublin; Brogan’s Eurospar in Belmullet, Co. Mayo; and Talty’s Mace in Ennis, Co. Clare will pioneer the use of contactless payment terminals that will allow customers to make purchases with a wave of their debit card.
Veronica Sullivan, head of IT at BWG Foods, said: “We are delighted that these three stores are representing Spar, Eurospar and Mace to pioneer the latest method of contactless payment, which we foresee as being hugely popular in this increasingly cashless and technology-enabled society. Contactless payment is a perfect fit for convenience shopping as customers will benefit directly from being able to make faster and easier payments, at no extra cost. I congratulate the stores for leading the way in this next evolution of shopping and we look forward to rolling this out across our brand estate in coming months.”
Seamus McHugh, marketing manager at CBE, added: “Over 80pc of transactions in convenience stores are under €15 so the potential for this new technology within the sector is enormous. CBE have been at the forefront of developing contactless technology for the Irish market and these installations will be the first of many as retailers throughout the country gear up for the imminent launch of Contactless cards by all of the major banks”.
