Dutch-based convenience store chain Spar has announced plans to roll out a new contactless payment system, according to retailmoves.com.
The system, called SPARPoS, will enable customers to make purchases of up to £15 with contactless debit or credit cards.
Spar has chosen Business Computer Projects to help develop the technology for the system, which the company has already trialled at the Spar in Haymarket and three other London stores.
Regarding the scope of the project, Spar UK Retail IT Controller Roy Ford commented that “the system will be rolled out, as appropriate, to other Spar stores so our customers can take advantage of contactless payment at their local store as their regular credit and debit cards are replaced by contactless enabled cards and the stores can benefit from reduced transaction costs.”
