First Data Merchant Solutions has won an award from MasterCard for their outstanding performance in Hong Kong – The Best Contactless Merchant Launched in 2015.

We partnered with one of the leading fast food restaurants in Hong Kong to deploy contactless payment terminals at over 240 of its outlets. Under this initiative, the fast food chain managed to deploy MasterCard PayPass contactless payments at its cashier points and kiosks island-wide.

Contactless payment is like having exact change wherever the customers go. A simple tap of the customer’s card or contactless-enabled payment mechanism (mobile phone, key fob) is all it takes to pay at the contactless payment terminals. Since installing the contactless payment terminals, sales volume has increased progressively as PayPass made it easy to make payment and drove more customers to use their contactless cards for their purchases. Furthermore, customers would visit the restaurants more often, resulting in increased foot traffic and higher sales receipts for the merchant.
