Recent years have seen huge investment in the Unattended Retail sector, allowing it to come a long way from its roots in Vending and Laundromats. Traditional Unattended Retail has collided with POS systems to spawn a number of new sectors. Whether you think of it as Automated Retail, Intelligent Retail, Unattended Retail or Autonomous Check-out, the benefits are obvious, from increased customer satisfaction and spend, to reduced operational costs. From a payments perspective, challenges exist across all of these sectors, and current payment solutions are not able to provide developers in Unattended Retail with frictionless solutions. Whether you see the humble Vending Machine growing to become the store, or existing stores becoming fully automated, you need a sophisticated partner to deliver the payment solutions expected by today’s demanding consumers.
