April Developer Tracker: Big picture payments
Some of the most notable advancements in payments have happened where cash was the preferred – or only – accepted form of payment for decades. Now everything from food trucks to parking meters can accept payments that don’t involve looking for loose change. So what's new for payments developers?
Photo booths are joining the ranks of cashless commerce, too. In this month’s edition of PYMNTS.com’s Developer Tracker™, powered by Vantiv, Super Booths CEO Jeremy Radino shares how traditional photo booths are evolving into full studio experiences complete with music, lighting, and connectivity to social media platforms. In addition to all of these technical advancements, Super Booths is also retrofitting their machines to accept cashless payments. In doing so, customers can now purchase extra prints and/or photo sessions without having exact change on hand. The integration of new payments software will also provide real-time performance and analytics for every machine, which it critical to meeting the demands of Super Booths’ clients.
