Urgent transport company Tipsa has launched a point-of-sale solution that can operate from employees’ personal digital assistants (PDAs), enabling customers to pay by bank card at the time of delivery.
This solution means that customers will not have to pay for the product until it is in their possession. It also means that delivery staff can avoid carrying money on their person. In addition, the operation will be completely ‘contactless’, since the customer will only have to bring their bank card or smartphone to manage the payment, maximizing the security, comfort and transparency of the entire delivery process. The solution has been implemented in collaboration with financial services company Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA) and the German fintech company Rubean.
Marisa Camacho, CEO of Tipsa, said, “Thanks to this collaboration, the company is taking a giant step in improving the quality of its cash-on-delivery services.”
Javier Urizar, the director of means of payment in BBVA stores in Spain, added, “We are very happy to collaborate to improve forms of payment in a sector as important as transport and logistics. This solution will help increase your sales and reduce your costs by improving your customers’ payment experience.”
Hermann Geupel, the CEO of Rubean, said, “This project will be the first of its kind in Spain and will modernize the way people think about payment services at the door. There is great interest in this type of technology throughout Europe, and Tipsa being the first in Spain says a lot about its spirit of innovation.”
