Many merchants, such as small business owners of food trucks, farmers market stands, mom-and-pop stores, to-go food shops, etc., have no dedicated staff or have limited staff to handle customer payments. As a result, merchants often have to stop what they are doing, such as handling food in order to take credit card payments from customers.
The swyft team is constantly looking for ways to improve the lives of small business owners. During incubation week, we experimented with our hands-free payment solution to solve the pains merchants are facing currently. The team came up with an innovative way to provide hands-free payment experience for merchants by leveraging wearable devices such as Google Glass.
