A cashless paradise is no longer a dream with the introduction of Tappit to Bali, the famed island of the Gods. After a successful island debut at the inaugural Bestival Bali, with more than 8,000 festival- goers turning cashless, Tappit is now looking to improve the customer experience across the island.
Tappit, a cashless experience specialist, brings a wealth of expertise to Bali, having delivered the cashless experience to venues around the world. From sporting events like the Emirates Airlines Dubai Rugby 7s, Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship and the Old Boys Rugby 10s in Johannesburg, to festivals like Tuning The Vine in Cape Town, Dar Al Zain in Abu Dhabi and Creamfields Hong Kong, and the first cashless football stadium in the UK; a permanent installation at Bury Football Club’s Energy Check Stadium.
Think beach clubs, night clubs, resorts and events. Imagine replacing your booking confirmation, ticket, admission passes, room key card, tab number, cash, paper bills with one item only: your wristband/card. All you have to do to transact it tap it.
Inside the wristbands sits a radio frequency identification (RFID) chip that not only grants visitors access to the venue but also acts as a digital wallet that serves as the payment method for food, beverage and merchandise. Venues also have the option to offer something more to the guests, including the ability to preload funds prior to their visit and online cash outs after they leave. Tappit’s RFID system ensures quicker transactions, shorter queues and more time for venue and event visitors to enjoy their Bali time, while businesses and organisers benefit from higher revenues, efficiencies and seamless operational procedures.
Tappit Chief Marketing Officer, Paul Winslow, has been calling Bali home for the last four years and is excited to be able to be leading the movement towards a better payments future on the island. “It’s a privilege to live in Bali; we know tourism is vital to the island’s economy and we know our cashless platform can benefit business owners and customers alike. I’m looking forward to going cashless in my favourite venues as a customer as much as a service provider.”
