London, UK (April 13, 2016) – Gateway Ticketing Systems UK (Gateway) is excited to bring the future of donations boxes to the Arts & Heritage sector. Rolling out from April 2016, this new technology will allow any charitable attraction to collect donations using contactless card payment technology.

Based upon industry-leading, secure payment technology, and proven by Cancer Research UK, the contactless donation box is the ideal way to boost your fundraising revenue and is aimed at those people for whom cash is a thing of the past.

Its ability to be custom-branded makes it ideal for all venues while its compact size means it can be used in a number of locations around your venue, for example, your front desk, a specific exhibition space, embedded into an existing donations box or around an individual exhibit, providing your customer the ability to make a simple donation at the peak of their emotional engagement with your collection.

“With contactless payments becoming more common across all sectors, we feel the time is right to tap into this new technology for the Arts & Heritage market. In 2014 we saw cash transaction drop below 50% of all transactions, this continues to fall as contactless uptake increases. Adapting to changing customer needs is vital for the continuing success of all charities, arguably more so for attractions where the potential donor may not be able to choose to donate at a later date,” said Andy Povey, Business Development Director at Gateway Ticketing Systems UK.
