According to trendspotter Springwise, the Salvation Army has been experimenting with new cashless kettles featuring an attached credit card reader that accepts credit and debit cards and prints a receipt.
When the new program launched late last year, cashless kettles were available at more than 300 locations in more than 120 cities across the United States.
Even better than the convenience factor for consumers is that in pilot tests in Dallas, Los Angeles and Colorado Springs, the average donation increased from USD 2 when payments are made using cash to about USD 15 when credit or debit cards are being used, the Salvation Army says.
