Pay in the stadium – without cash! With the
first rollout at the erdgas schwaben arena in Kaufbeuren, in-tech
launched the new payment system onetwopay. The fans of the second league
hockey team ESVK can now pay quickly,
securely and easily by app in the stadium. At the kiosks, fans scan a QR
code displayed at the checkout with their smartphone and then pay with
just one click. “onetwopay is a simple and individual payment solution
for sports stadiums, event venues or chain restaurants “, explains
in-tech CEO Christian Wagner. “With very
little investment, these operators can offer their customers secure and
cashless payment via app – in an individually branded app, which can
also contain additional functions if required.”
Saving of time for more game enjoyment
Cashless payment in the stadium – this trend is becoming increasingly
popular among sports fans. The reason: No annoying lines at the points
of sale, faster processing and payment and guests have more time for the
essentials – the game itself. ESV Kaufbeuren
also wanted to introduce cashless payments in the erdgas schwaben arena,
which was newly opened at the end of 2017. However, the prepaid credit
cards used in many other stadiums did not convince the ESVK officials: complicated card loading, expensive infrastructure – a more modern and simpler solution was required.
With the ESVK as a pilot customer, in-tech
started the development of a user-friendly payment app – the result was
onetwopay as an individualized solution that can also be transferred to
other operators. “We are very pleased about the successful cooperation
with in-tech. With our new app, payment at the kiosks in the erdgas
schwaben arena is now lightning fast. This significantly shortens the
waiting time at the pay desks for our fans “, says ESVK Managing Director Michael Kreitl.
Pay with just one click
The first users were highly satisfied: “Just put the phone on the screen and you’re done. Easy!” an ESVK
fan confirmed. When paying at the kiosk, the visitor opens the app and
scans the QR code displayed at the checkout with his smartphone. This
shows an order overview and the amount to be paid – and with just one
click the payment process is completed.
No remaining credit
Unlike many other payment apps, it’s also easy to get started: The app “My ESVK”
is available for Android and iOS and can be downloaded free of charge
from the respective appstores. Before the first payment the user only
has to load credit on his/her account via Paypal – immediately the app
is ready for use. The highlight: unused credit can be paid out via
Paypal with just one click. Even guest fans or one time visitors can
thus pay cashlessly without having to sit on unused remaining credit –
as is the case with card systems in many stadiums.
Security comes first
In addition, in-tech also focused on security during the payment
process: before payment, the user sees in an overview what exactly is
debited from his credit balance and can only then confirm the amount. No
personal data is stored or transmitted. Therefore, it is not possible
to deduce the identity of the users or their Paypal account.
App can also be used for other events
onetwopay is an individualizable solution: Each operator receives his
own, individually branded app. In this system, payment transactions are
carried out without intermediaries, directly between guest and operator.
If desired, other useful additional functions can be integrated into
the app (e.g. menus, live ticker or other information).
