The benefits of mobile payments to Consumers
Mobile payments are performed either via a mePay™ smartphone App or by a mePay SMS message. The smartphone app can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store and Apple stores. The payment via SMS message is made in accordance with the instructions of the vending machines.
With the mobile phone payment, consumer will always be able to purchase drinks, without worrying about cash. Various payment options allow the consumer to decide where the actual payment for the product should be directed. The most popular smartphone application options are credit or debit cards. With an SMS payment, the purchase will be charged on the consumer’s phone bill. With smartphone application payments, the consumer only pays the costs that are notified on the vending machine, with no additional charges.
Due to the location intelligence of the application, the consumer can verify the location of the nearest vending machine to him or her. The application allows the consumer to choose the most suitable payment method for each case. E.g. car washing, parking or refuelling can be made with a business card, and, for example, personal purchases, such as soft drinks, can be made by using one’s own personal card at vending machines. The consumer can easily obtain receipts for all purchases from the consumer’s personal MymePay – portal.
