With more consumers embracing digital-first, experts believe payments innovation is here to stay

The pandemic has driven more grocery shoppers to embrace online shopping, curbside pickup, and increased self-service shopping. And, payments innovation is leading the way for these changes in consumer behavior.

According to a recent article, grocery shopping is experiencing the biggest and most permanent change due to the pandemic. Over 85% of surveyed consumers who have shifted to online grocery shopping say that they will maintain shopping online for the foreseeable future.  Those who plan to shop in-store are looking to minimize risks from interaction, such as contactless payments through tap-to-pay and QR code technology.

The challenge for grocers is to help shoppers safely pay and help those who are less tech-savvy enjoy a great shopping experience. The right systems and solutions that grow with your customers’ needs are crucial ingredients to success.
