Tech guru Aki Anastasiou brings the latest innovations and innovations in the world of tech.
He takes a look at how to make life cashless - the apps, the services you can use without having to carry cash with you.
He says Snapscan is one of the early pioneers in the Fintech industry, with an app that scans a QR Code to make and receive payments.
The good thing about Snapscan is really a lot of businesses and small businesses can't afford a credit card machine, so they use their QR code. When you want to buy something at a flea market, you just scan it and they facilitate those payments.— Aki Anastasiou
He says Zapper is a good option, also uses a QR code, and you just download the app and enter your credit card details..
There is nothing more I hate when you've had dinner at a restaurant and you are waiting for the waiter to come with the credit card machine so you can pay and that irritates me. There is always a QR code at the end of your bill, so you simply scan and you pay and you can walk out.— Aki Anastasiou
There is nothing more frustrating than losing a parking ticket at a mall or having to queue to pay for parking, he says. But, there are solutions like KaChing which is a cashless, ticketless, user-friendly parking app which uses license plate recognition to open a boom when a user arrives at a parking lot. Payment is linked to the user's credit card or pre-paid account upon exiting. KaChing makes your parking experience hassle-free and cost-effective.
