A more flexible commercial model for unattended payments encourages self-service payment transactions in a post-pandemic world

Transaction Systems (TRSYS). a PAX Technology Master Distributor for SEE, Russia & CIS, is currently offering a more flexible commercial model for the state-of-the-art IM20 and IM30 unattended payment modules- as was lately communicated by PAX Technology. The promotion aims to help boost self-service transactions and to promote convenient contact-free payment experiences following the global coronavirus pandemic.

As nations worldwide implemented strict containment measures, effectively shutting down many merchant categories to limit the outbreak, many countries raised the minimum spend required for contactless transactions, as cash usage fell dramatically and consumers preferred to not enter their PIN codes on traditional physical keypads.

In the future, there will be a lot more demand for more self-checkout and unattended self-service payment solutions, as well as more demand for what is perceived as a more clinical approach to PIN-on-Glass entry on modern Android-based payment terminals.

The IM20 and Android IM30 are equipped with large touchscreens with PIN-on-Glass functionality, a benefit compared to traditional physical keypads. Despite the higher contactless limits, many people will still need to key in their PINs to complete higher value transactions. In these cases, a payment terminal with PIN-on-Glass display is easier to operate and is easier to clean and disinfect.

This is why the cost entry-point for merchants who wish to focus more on self-checkout payment solutions, is now lower. The Android IM30 comes in 3 orderable comms configurations (Ethernet-only, additionally with WiFi & Bluetooth, and a full connectivity suite including 4G) and pricing now includes key accessories such as MDB, USB, and power cables, as well as external 4G antenna).
