Aldi, Lidl Adopt Contactless Payment Systems

August 17, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Discount retailers Aldi and Lidl introduced their respective contactless payment systems. After completing a successful trial of the technology, Lidl rolled out Ingenico's iPP350 contactless payment system across its 580 stores. Aldi is running a trial at selected branches and is also considering the adoption of near field communication-driven technology. Several retailers in the UK have already implemented contactless payment systems in 2012, including Marks & Spencer and The Co-operative Group. Use of contactless payment systems in the UK has risen 22 percent in the first quarter of 2013, according to research by Visa.
