Well, here’s a question that’s going to be raised during ACOS next week and it’s one global payments specialists OKTO have clearly got an answer to. Are you tired of dealing with the hassles of cash transactions in your gaming operations? Well, say hello to the future of retail payments – OKTO.DIRECT. It’s the first and only retail payments gateway, and, the company says, it’s a game changer. Ahead of the UK’s autumn coin-op expo in London, OKTO explains how its pioneering system is delivering a seamless, digital payment experience to customers like never before.
“It’s the ultimate payment solution without the cash hassle and no app download,” the OKTO team told Coinslot during its final preparations for next week’s trip to the ILEC in London for ACOS 2023.
“Imagine making payments without downloading yet another app or handling cash,” they noted. “With OKTO.DIRECT, you can do just that! Its cutting-edge solution eliminates the need for app downloads, making transactions smooth and convenient.”
The proposition certainly sounds enticing as operators begin to grapple their way through a rapidly growing range of payment services currently occupying the retail space. “It unlocks multiple payment methods,” they told Coinslot. “OKTO.DIRECT opens the doors to a world of payment options. With just one integration, users can access a range of digital payment methods, including instant bank transfers, cards, Apple Pay, and Google Pay. The days of being limited to a single payment method are over!”
It’s a system that has undergone significant investment: OKTO has been quick to focus on the crucial needs of customer convenience and social responsibility.
“We understand the importance of safe and responsible payments. OKTO.DIRECT ensures that your payment experience is not only seamless but also responsible. “
So, how have they achieved that? Quite comprehensively, it seems.
OKTO.DIRECT features a seamless registration process, KYC and AML checks, spending limits, time limits for payment cancellation, and even access to gambling helplines.
And they are confident in their delivery: “Your safety and security are our top priorities,” they boldly state.
The digital wave, according to recent government payments statistics, is speeding up – rapidly, and now represents more than half of the retail transactions in the UK.
But the pace of change for many businesses in the industry is varied; not every operation can make the transition immediately. OKTO has recognised this: “We’ve spoken to many operators who want to make the shift from cash to digital payments, but aren’t quite ready for a full-fledged wallet solution with extensive KYC requirements.”
So, what’s the solution in these cases? “We’ve ensured OKTO.DIRECT is ideal for operators and their customers in this situation. The system caters to retail users who are embracing digital payments at their own pace.”
Which brings us back to the very question that set this process in motion: “Are you ready to unlock the benefits of real-time digital payments?”
Well, OKTO are very clear on the answer: “Say goodbye to cash transactions, and say hello to OKTO.DIRECT. It’s time to experience a faster, more convenient, and responsible way to pay across all retail verticals and touchpoints.”
You better get ready for the revolution?
