As per the industry trade body, UK Finance, the spending limit for non-contact card payments was increased in April 2020 to enable seamless electronic contactless payments. Hospitals and healthcare organizations are also using POS terminals for non-contact payment acceptance to ensure patient and staff safety.
Traditional POS systems provide enhanced control over the data stored and processed inside them, in turn, propelling their demand.

Establishing a traditional POS system enables owners to gain complete ownership of the infrastructure, ensuring data privacy. Large warehouse owners, hotels, and restaurant chains prefer adopting traditional POS systems to ensure customer data security.
