Next Level Point of Sale: The transformation of the buyer-seller dialogue

VR Payment at the EuroShop 2020

Tempora mutantur – and rather quickly. While the focus of interest in this sector has primarily been on online trade in recent years, analogue trade is currently moving back into the foreground.  Competition among distribution channels is leading to increased innovation at the stationary point of sale (POS): Retail spaces are becoming places of adventure for consumers, the use of digital devices is increasing and retailers are starting to experiment with augmented and virtual reality technologies for product presentation and customer advising.

"Modern payment is no longer just a financial transaction. It brings added value to the point of sale, which retailers can use to shape customer relations.” (Carlos Gómez-Sáez, CEO of VR Payment)

The media technology equipment used by consumers supports this trend: Ever more powerful smartphones are becoming the central medium for the entire purchasing process, from product searching to logistics and after-sales services. The continuous online connectivity and the diverse app landscape are increasingly blurring the boundaries between stationary and online trade, causing both trade channels to slowly intertwine. The actual conclusion of the purchase – the payment – becomes an integral part of the buyer-seller dialogue.

Carlos Gómez-Sáez, CEO of VR Payment, states: "Modern payment that supports trade development is no longer just a financial transaction. Rather, it itself brings added value to the point of sale, which retailers can use to shape customer relations. It doesn’t matter whether it is personalisation of offers, smart strategies for customer loyalty or innovative add-on services: Modern payment takes advantage of the possibilities offered by smartphones or other digital devices and thus provides the answer to the next level needs of the retail industry.”
