Mobile Payment Boosts Profits

69 percent reported more profit

Customers prefer convenience at the curb.

What’s more convenient: paying for takeout by phone, or paying at the curb? From an outside perspective, the difference may seem trivial—a sale is a sale—but from the customer’s point of view, the two experiences are night and day. By the numbers: A survey of 202 retailers and their customers* found online/mobile payment delivers:
  • Enhanced customer satisfaction: 70% of retailers who offered an online/mobile payment option enjoyed higher customer experience ratings than those offering curbside pay alone.
  • Enhanced profit: 69% reported higher per transaction margins with online/mobile pay options.
  • Lower staffing costs: Mobile pay facilitates grab-and-go. Retailers with an online/mobile option had 42% smaller staffing levels than curbside-only operations.
  • Enhanced customer lifetime value: Customers paying through online/mobile are a massive 315% more likely to sign up for loyalty programs.
  • More “net promoters”: Customers are also 207% more likely to tell someone they know about their buying experience with online/mobile payment versus curbside payment.
Kick curbside to the curb: It’s no longer enough to just offer curbside service. The trend is moving toward online/mobile payment paired with curbside pickup.
