Food chains EAT. and Bel-Air are taking part in a pilot for a new retail data platform
The platform created by Flux delivers real-time receipts, including item data and VAT, directly to customer’s mobile banking apps. It does this by linking purchases to bank cards via a software integration to the retailer’s point of sale.
The pilot with EAT
will take place in select London stores. Flux will also trial their offering with Monzo, the recently launched challenger bank.
Monzo customers can link their card to the Flux platform and from there, pay as normal at
participating EAT or Bel-Air stores. Flux
then delivers their full receipt and any e-stamps on offer in real-time to their Monzo app.
Currently, when a customer looks at their bank statement they can only see the retailer’s name, the total amount and the date. But Flux will complete the picture by showing each item bought and provide additional value by linking connected information, such as e-stamps, to those items.
Flux enables retailers to better understand and engage consumers, while in turn giving consumers a personalised digital experience.
“EAT was the first UK retailer to launch contactless payments and we are happy to announce that once again we’re breaking ground as the first retailer in the UK to pilot a receipt solution that adds no time at till because it’s simply linked to how people pay.”
says Andrew Walker, CEO of EAT.
