Multicard has expanded the availability of its Cashless Betalen mobile payments solution in The Netherlands to catering and food service providers.
Following the initial successful launch of the solution in Dutch sports clubs, Multicard is now signing up commercial caterers who will use Cashless Betalen to enable NFC payments in company and school cafeterias across the country, according to Multicard.
Cashless Betalen is the account management engine application used with the digital wallet offered by Rabobank, one of the largest banks in the Netherlands. The application enables consumers to pay for their meals or other items with just a tap of their NFC-enabled smart phone to a payment terminal.
Cashless Betalen users can also check account balances, transfer funds and monitor account activity using their smart phones.
More than 100 company canteens, high schools and international schools in The Netherlands have now implemented Cashless Betalen, according to Multicard.
