EP041 - Digital Payments Deep Dive

Key considerations when looking at Digital Payment Options:

  • Ability to support all the payment types your customers want to use (brands of cards, store cards, debit, ACH)
  • Size of vendors current user base and overlap with your customer base (will you be accessing an installed base of users from your vendor, or will you be onboarding your customers to the vendors platform).
  • Ability to integrate digital receipts and post purchase experience
  • Ability to integrate coupons, offers, promotions, and loyalty programs
