Lightspeed announces new features to help its customers with the continued digital transformation of their businesses. The new tools offer increased mobility when processing transactions, more options for viewing business insights, and will better support SMBs as they continue to adjust to consumer behavior. New features for in-store POS and eCommerce include Mobile Tap supporting curbside pick-up and contactless payment, Digital Wallet and Analytics Core.

Lightspeed's new solutions enhance the omnichannel shopping experience, enable greater multi-location efficiencies, and offer opportunities for improved productivity for Lightspeed retailers.

Mobile Tap for Curbside Pick-Up and Contactless Payment
Lightspeed merchants in the U.S. using Lightspeed Payments will now be able to process transactions with just a tap, anywhere in-store or curbside. The Mobile Tap hardware connects through Bluetooth, essentially turning an iPad into a contactless mobile payments terminal. Payments are processed securely with the integration of end-to-end encryption technology.

Digital Wallet for eCommerce
Optimized for mobile, the introduction of Digital Wallet in North America supports faster eCommerce conversion and supports a plethora of payment methods globally, including Google Pay and Apple Pay. This is a secure and seamless one-click eCommerce checkout.

Analytics Core for retail insights
Through this new module, users will have access to a variety of business dashboards and insights on sales, inventory and employee performance, enabling retailers to make data-driven decisions about the future. 

Lightspeed continues to share industry knowledge through an online resource guide that serves to inform SMBs during the pandemic.
