San Bruno, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/29/2014 -- With studies that suggest the value of online and mobile payments will double before the end of the decade, a company that offers professional restaurant website design, database and software development solutions says restaurants should cash in on the growing Internet-based business.
World Wide Optimize (WWO) cites a recent news report that the annual transaction of contactless payments made through the Internet would reach $4.7 billion by the year 2019, or more than double of the $2.5 trillion recorded in 2014. The figure was revealed by Juniper Research in its new report called Digital Payment Strategies: Online, Mobile & Contactless 2014-2019.
WWO adds that restaurant owners should engage their customers via mobile, as the restaurant industry has embraced mobile marketing and mobile payments in the past few years. The restaurant website designer cites that consumers now make dining decisions using their phones. Armed with smart phones capable of Internet browsing just like an ordinary laptop or desktop computer, diners can search for restaurants, make reservations, and even make reviews based on their dining experience.
Loyalty and rewards schemes of restaurants have also gone online. Starbucks, for example, has gone online not only to reduce the customer queuing time but also enable their customers to view their transactions and track their loyalty rewards points.
WWO underlines that restaurant proprietors should not be left behind in this revolution, as the lack of a website with vital information and services like menu and online ordering can spell the difference between failure and success.
