German Playport Dresden introduces NFC payment solution


Playport Dresden introduced the new Club Card at the end of August. Visitors can use it to pay, collect Porti-Points and exchange them into fantastic awards. The NFC-based payment solution is provided by Avance Pay, the innovative Swiss NFC payment specialist.

Bern, Switzerland and Dresden, Germany, 8 September, 2014. In the past, returning Playport customers have been rewarded with the 11th entrance ticket for free. Using the new Club Card, visitors can collect Porti-Points for every Euro spent on admission, as well as for any food or drink consumed during their visit. Furthermore, Playport has plans to accept the Club Card in their web shop and to provide further benefits for card holders. The payment solution from Avance Pay is highly suitable for this. Mr. Otto, the General Manager of Playport says: "In Avance Pay, we have found the right partner for the Club Card. Avance Pay knows how to fulfill our requirements using state-of-the-art NFC technology. The solution is simple to understand for our customers and easy to use for our staff."

The Club Card has been accepted well in Dresden. As a result, Mr. Otto is already planning to introduce the Club Card in the Playport in Moscow. Avance Pay's payment solution will be used at all future European-wide expansions. Mr. Bircher-Nagy, Managing Director for Technology at Avance Pay says: "Playport confirms that it pays to use off-the-shelf NFC-enabled smartphones as Point-of-Sale terminals. Smartphones assure full flexibility at low investment costs, allowing operators to serve many customers in a short period of time."

The solution from Avance Pay is well suited to handle peak customer rushes on rainy Sundays at the Playport, as well as crowds at open-air festivals. The usage of NFC provides a future-proof solution for the acceptance of mobile wallets, where the smartphone of the consumer serves as both a purse and a club card.
