Revamping Bottle Service with the Game-Changing Impact of Tap to Pay in Nightclubs
On a busy Friday night, the club is pulsating with energy, the music is resonating through every corner, and the dance floor is alive with revelers. Amidst this electric atmosphere, the bottle service at your table becomes the cherry on top of the celebration. But if there's one buzzkill in this thrilling scenario, it is the conventional payment methods. Traditional payment readers and systems, which are still prevalent in many high-end nightclubs, are proving to be a significant hindrance, affecting the overall customer experience and efficiency on the club floor.
The key issue with conventional payment methods lies in their time-consuming nature. When a card payment is requested in a venue, the bartender at the booth flags down a runner and lets them know of the request, and a runner takes this back to the payments manager in the dispense area. This creates a service bottleneck. The reader is carried out to a table where the payment is handled and then taken back to the dispense before an order can even begin to be prepared.
On average at night's peak, venue order turnaround can increase to more than 15-30 minutes. Even with DQ in place, removing the wait for information to be communicated from the booth to the payment manager and instantly communicating the order payment status, the bottleneck of moving a payment terminal around the venue remains, and the lowest average turnaround we see is 3 minutes.
Enter the game-changing feature for nightclubs: Tap to Pay on iOS and Android. This innovation has revolutionized the way transactions are handled in a nightclub setting. Tap to Pay allows any staff member to securely take card payments on the floor at any time. No more waiting for the card machine or hunting down a staff member to pay your bill.
The benefits are manifold. For customers, it means an uninterrupted experience. You can enjoy your bottle service, tap to pay when you're ready, and continue your night without any tedious waiting around. For the staff, it means a more streamlined operation. Payments can be taken on the spot, reducing the need for them to leave their areas and increasing their efficiency, and orders are immediately communicated to dispense and bought out reducing average venue turnaround to the magic number... 1 minute.
Moreover, Tap to Pay adds a layer of security that conventional methods simply can't match.
