Contactless Payments, Made Simple

7 min read

With a return to Alert Level Three on Wednesday, many Aucklanders flocked to their favourite local spots for their first barista-made coffee in five weeks. A welcome change to the daily lockdown routine.

What has not changed is the number of businesses still looking for ways to manage the logistics around receiving contactless payments under tight Covid trading restrictions.

Back in March we observed creative Kiwi Contactless Payments Solutions that had emerged from that lockdown. Solutions we saw included the ‘Swipe My Lunchbox’, the ‘Take My Number’ & the ‘Spot Me Bro’ – all valid attempts from small business owners to receive contactless payments in a safe way at a time when revenue mattered more than ever.

Fast forward to today. With cafés, florists, hardware stores & more reopening on Wednesday, you don’t need to walk far within your bubble to see that many of these solutions are still in play. The challenge remains: how do you keep your staff and customers safe, and receive contactless payments easily?

The answer is Dosh, New Zealand’s first digital wallet and the country’s only instant, contactless payment solution. Dosh provides a better, cheaper, faster solution for small business owners to accept instant payments, saving time, money and admin. No dirty cash, no 16-digit bank account numbers or setting up new payees within an online banking platform, free wallet to wallet transfers and reduced merchant fees. Dosh will make accepting contactless payments simpler and more convenient for both customers and sellers, using QR codes (either dynamic from a smartphone or static; printed and on display at a shop counter) to scan and complete payment on the spot.

Dosh offers plans to cater to every stage of the Kiwi small business, giving access to a full suite of customised marketing tools and full visibility on all transactions, to get existing customers spending more & bringing new ones through the door.

Dosh is launching imminently; we encourage you to get in touch about using Dosh for your small business, particularly now when contactless payments are a priority. Let us know if you’d like to be taken through a pre-launch demo; we are confident you’ll be impressed with our simple, efficient and secure little Kiwi-owned app. In the meantime, there’s still time for you to join our waitlist & be one of the first to pay and get paid instantly, with Dosh.
