The Retail Tech. Race

The reason behind the race

Change in payments is in overdrive and customer expectations are higher than ever before.

Poor implementation and lack of relevant payment options can often lead to loss of sales for retailers. They must ensure that payments
are a frictionless part of a seamless customer experience to stay ahead.

The future of payments is here, and the retailers that embrace changes in consumer behaviour and innovate, will reap the rewards.

That’s why we asked 5 industry influencers to take on the Retail Tech. Race challenge, and help us determine which methods of payment retailers are failing to get right. 

5 retail legends, 5 payment types, 1 challenge...

BUY EVERYTHING ON THE Tech. SHOPPING LIST USING JUST ONE METHOD OF PAYMENT! MEET OUR RACERS..


 

We set a shopping list of 10 items for each of our legends to purchase ahead of Tech. 

The first 7 items on the list were: a home assistant, an Asos branded item, 500 penny sweets, an original Nintendo game boy, a personalised item, a scratch card and a build your own robot arm kit that they actually have to build. The final 3 items on the list were only exposed 48 hours before Tech.

The winner of the challenge was the player who bought the most items on the list.
