How does the cashless payment method for festivals work?

The way the cashless wristband payment system works at festivals is very simple, and the growing rate of adoption by festivalgoers proves it. The standard path for cashless payment users who top up before arriving is as follows:

  • The attendee creates a cashless account, links their ticket and tops up their wristband.
  • On arriving at the event, they exchange their ticket for their pre-topped-up cashless wristband.
  • They pay for their food and drinks in one movement with their cashless wristband.
  • After the event, they request a refund of the remaining balance.

Offer an intuitive digital experience for attendees.

The online top-up rate of cashless wristbands is growing exponentially, a sure sign of an ingrained consumer habit that’s popular among attendees. Meet attendees’ expectations by opting to digitise their experience with a cashless system at your festival.

With their NFC wristband, your festival’s audience will be able to:

  • Check their balance and their history with total transparency.
  • Top up their cashless wristband in one click, from your event’s website or app.
  • Use it easily and quickly throughout the event.
  • Enter the festival and specific areas (VIP, backstage, etc.).
  • Enjoy the event with no worries, as the cashless wristband can be blocked.
  • Request a refund with ease.

    Improve your money management, with less infrastructure.

    1. All sales are processed through a secure module.
    2. With online cashless top-ups before the event, you’ll observe trends and reduce cash management at the venue.
    3. Limiting the use of banknotes and coins to a small number of physical points will increase security and improve cash handling. The trend is towards 100% digital!
    4. Reducing the infrastructure inside the venue will also reduce costs for the organisation.

    Fewer, and more resistant, terminals.

    By implementing a cashless payment system at your event, you’ll reduce the number of terminals required by up to 30% compared to contactless systems with bank cards. Our cashless terminals are highly resistant and work in environments with large amounts of liquids and grease. Their robustness and considerable autonomy enable fewer rotations of terminals during the festival, resulting in reduced stress and costs and preventing service outages.
