Tossed Opens Cash-Free Stores
Cash is set to be a thing of the past at healthy food chain Tossed. Their two newest branches – Coleman Street and Upper Thames Street – will be cash-free branches, accepting payments via contactless card, chip card, or an NFC mobile payment app such as Apple Pay only. Furthermore, the new branches will also be fitted with self-service kiosks putting the high street salad bar well ahead of the curve.
According to NFC World, the remaining Tossed branches will also be adopting this approach. The rationale appears to be to embrace opportunities that technology enable and to also reduce paper use.
Tossed have never been averse to technology and utilised screens at tills to provide customers with further information on their products, however, this is a leap even for these forward thinkers.
BBB does wonder if this approach could potentially exclude some potential customers but on the surface it looks like the cash-free approach could be ideal for the super busy.
