• 1. Break out of the Ecosystem

    Currently, the payment landscape is riddled with propriety processes. Some digital wallets like MasterCard and VISA force people to buy into their ecosystem, requiring special payment terminals to be installed. Imagine having to go to a different machine for every other card payment? That’s crazy.

    Rooam however works with all major debit and credit cards. And the best part, Rooam adapts to a business’ existing point-of-sale by installing software not hardware.

    2. No Payment Gimmicks

    We’ve all seen those ads where a person clicks into their payment app and then taps it on an accompanying device. Really? It’s 2017 guys, the tap phone feature was a cool idea when it first came out, but by now it’s gone the way of 3D movies. Aside from the fact that older and cheaper devices don’t have NFC, it also has a whole myriad of security issues. Moreover, businesses then need to install a special NFC reader onto the payment terminal. Rooam lets customers do what comes naturally, paying through their phone directly and into a point of sale. No gimmicks, no bar codes, and no tapping.

    3. Paying the Bill Anytime and Anywhere

    Most payment systems require the customer’s physical presence at the point of sale, or the bar/restaurant to take a card. By automating this process, Rooam makes a bar more efficient and increases sales. Checking into a restaurant through Rooam takes only a few seconds, compared to that lengthy card collecting and tab opening process most bartenders are currently doing. And closing your tab with Rooam automatically pays the tab, meaning no customers angrily waiting at the bar.  And when the night ends, restaurants don’t have to deal with lost cards, because Rooam automatically closes out the tab.

    If you’re a bar or restaurant owner looking to get in on the rising tide of mobile payments, start accepting Rooam at your business!
