How Viva Wallet Can Assist your Café, Bar, and Restaurant Business within the Post-COVID-19 Era

As Cafés, Bars & Restaurants in the UK devise plans on how to get their business up and running again, Viva Wallet will continue to support their payment needs, by providing easy solutions to the difficult post-COVID-19 situation.

Taking payments in the current environment is more challenging than ever. People are obliged to keep social distancing rules while trying to enjoy their time out, government guidelines change, and businesses must adapt fast. That’s why here at Viva Wallet, we want to support businesses within the Food and Drink Industry so that they can take payments safely, make the most profit from their transactions today, and be prepared for when customers do return to their tables.

Remote Payment Tools

For takeaways, deliveries, and click & collect, we have developed two remote payment tools which enable customers to make payments from a distance:

- Quick Pay – Create a payment link, share it with customers, and start accepting payments.

- Virtual Terminal – A POS within the Account Dashboard. Fill in the customer's card details, select the charge button, and accept the payment.

These services are free and available to our merchants within their Viva Wallet Account Dashboards.

Contactless Transactions

We have adapted our terminal range to include four touchscreen terminals, all of which have been designed with different business needs in mind.
The Mini Card Reader, Android Card Terminal 4G, Mobile Card Terminal and Mobile Card Terminal Plus, accept all types of contactless payments via card, mobile, Apple Pay and Google Pay. If Chip & PIN transactions are required, the terminals are button-less and are easy to disinfect thoroughly between customers.

Portable devices

Taking payments away from the counter has become vital when helping with social distancing within premises and accepting payments on deliveries. With Bluetooth or 4G connectivity, our card terminals can assist with faster customer turnover, by enabling staff to take transaction tableside, at customers' doorsteps or on location whilst serving customers from mobile catering vans.

Digital Receipts

We wanted to remove the need for hand to hand contact by integrating Digital Receipt functionality into our terminals. Fundamentally, customers can still obtain receipts for their purchases by receiving them via SMS or email, eliminating cross-contamination fears.

0% Acceptance Fees!

We are the only payment provider that give our customers full control over how much they spend on their card transaction fees. Our customers can earn back their acceptance fees with the ability to reduce them to 0% by using the Viva Wallet Debit Mastercard to pay for their business expenses. This defining concept has never been as crucial as it is now when helping customers minimise their fees.
