Cashless Ubiquity

Tap-to-pay technology is worked into common everyday items

Implications - As secure cashless payment technology has proliferated, brands have moved far beyond credit cards, debit cards, and even smartphones as payment hubs. Removing as many barriers to purchase as possible, brands have incorporated tap-to-pay tech into common everyday items like gloves, keys, and watches. Simplifying the process of purchase itself lets brands shift consumers' focus more wholly towards the benefits of their product or service (as opposed to the peripheral aspects of acquiring that offering).
