Easier supermarket shopping

Have your say

CUSTOMERS at a supermarket in Horndean will be able to use contactless payment.

Morrisons will equip each cashier and self-service payment point with a new payment reader through which transactions of up to £20 can be made by tapping a bank card against the reader pad.

Morrisons Horndean general manager Peter Thorogood said: ‘Contactless payment is another way in which we are trying to make shopping trips faster and easier for Horndean’s customers.’

The new terminals have been put in place to reduce customer queues, especially during peak shopping periods.

It is estimated that the method will save each customer 10 seconds every time they pay for their shopping.

Mr Thorogood said: ‘Many of our customers have a card and are already familiar with the technology.’
