Clip, Mexico's leading digital payments and commerce platform, announced several new innovations to their products which grant merchants in Mexico better access to digital payments and financial services.

Over 75% of Clip merchants transacted with cash only before joining Clip. Today, two out of three merchants that join Mexico's digital payments system use Clip's products.

"Our experience and strong relationship with customers inspired us to develop the most comprehensive digital payment system in the industry, one that meets the needs of all merchants and encourages their growth. Clip is for everyone and today we have products for any business, regardless of size, industry or location,"

- Adolfo Babatz, founder and CEO of Clip Mexico.

In their recent launch event, 'reCONNECT,' Clip highlighted its evolution to becoming the number one payments platform in Mexico and showcased the company's latest innovations.

Among the products and solutions that Clip launched, there were three point-of-sale terminals - Clip Mini, Clip Pro 2 and Clip Stand -, three Remote Payments software features - QR Code, Payment Link, URL Link -, and two hardware accessories - Clip Cashbox and Clip Printer.

Key highlights include:
  • Clip Stand – the main featured product of the event, the most complete point of sale terminal with a 16-inch HD portable touch screen, a camera with a reader to photograph products and scan both barcodes and QR codes, a free digital catalog to manage inventory and sales, and unlimited free internet on all transactions.
  • Remote Payments 2.0 – allows merchants to generate QR codes for contactless payments, custom links for card-not-present sales, and trade links to centralize payments from a permanent link.
  • Clip Cashbox and Printer – the Cashbox allows merchants to manage both cash and credit securely in one place, while the Printer generates printed orders, receipts, and daily sales summaries without the need for a link.

This diverse set of hardware and software provides merchants with the ability to process payments - including national and international credit, debit, voucher cards and contactless payments - with more than 19 banks and partners. Merchants can process payments with or without a cell phone, tablet or internet access. Clip products also give merchants access to key functions at no additional cost, such as inventory management and selling cell phone airtime top-ups.

With these innovations, Clip reinforces its commitment to driving financial inclusion in Mexico by broadening access to digital payment solutions for Mexico's thousands of small and medium-sized businesses.

Consumer Payment Preferences Driven by Convenience and Ease-of-Use, According to InComm Payments Report

InComm Payments | September 06, 2022

InComm Payments, a leading payments technology company, today released its 2022 Annual Payments Report, which found that consumers identified convenience and ease-of-use as the top factors influencing their choice of payment method. These factors coincide with a growing preference for contactless payment methods, specifically Tap & Go and mobile wallets, which rounded out consumers' five favorite ways to pay behind debit, credit and cash. The report drew responses from more than 3,200 U.S. consumers in June 2022. "Brands and retailers should pay attention to shifting consumer preferences to ensure they can meet expectations for convenient payment experiences,Our report highlights trends and attitudes around traditional and emerging payment methods, examining how consumers navigate the wide range of payment options available today." Brian Parlotto, Executive Vice President at InComm Payments Personal Payment Apps and Mobile Wallets on the Rise When asked about the personal payment apps (PPA) and mobile wallets they use and recognize, a little under half of surveyed consumers said they used a PPA, while one quarter of surveyed consumers said they used a mobile wallet recently. Moreover, approximately two-thirds of PPA users said they were satisfied with their chosen app, and nearly three-quarters of mobile wallet users expressed satisfaction with their payment method. PayPal remained the most popular mobile wallet among respondents, while Ca$h App and Zelle saw the largest increase in reported use. High Satisfaction from QR Code and Barcode Payment Users Consumer awareness of QR code and barcode payments was flat year over year, but those who recently used the payment method reported an increase in every perceived benefit of the technology, from fast and easy-to-use to reliable and secure. QR code and barcode payments were the only method in this year's report to experience an increase in every type of benefit perceived by users. Overall, traditional payment methods such as debit, credit and cash remain highly ranked by consumers, although satisfaction and use of credit declined year over year. The survey also captured how consumers would plan to pay in specific situations, such as making an everyday in-store purchase or sending money to someone they personally know, and identified differences in payment methods among generations.
