4. CHECKOUT OPTIONS AT A GLANCE
CurrentC is supported by more than 70 retailers. With that comes the need to support a variety of retail payment systems and customer smartphones, both old and new. During the beta rollout of CurrentC, there are a few ways to pay depending on which retailer you are visiting: From CHECKOUT, select SHOP, DINE, or PUMP. Or, in some locations, uses of a BLUETOOTH BEACON lets you pay without pressing the CHECKOUT button at all.
Let us know about your experience with these methods through our CurrentC User Feedback Survey, as we explore the most seamless solutions for our customers and merchant partners alike.
SHOP + SHOW: At retailers such as CVS/pharmacy and Target, you will select SHOP, then SHOW to generate your Paycode. The cashier will scan your Paycode to process your transaction.
SHOP + SCAN: At retailers such as Giant Eagle and Giant Eagle Market District, you will select SHOP, then SCAN to access your phone’s camera, which you will then point at the Paycode generated on the register to process your transaction.
DINE + SCAN: At sit-down restaurant partners, the DINE option lets you add a tip right from the app before you complete your transaction. Once the server brings your check, you’ll select DINE, then SCAN to access your phone’s camera, which you will then point at the Paycode printed on the check to process any tip amount you add and complete the transaction. The server is notified the check is closed automatically once you pay, so you don’t have to wait for a receipt to sign.
PUMP: At gas stations, you will select PUMP, then verify your station location and pump number to authorize the pump to begin fueling before you even exit your vehicle.
BLUETOOTH BEACONS IN-STORE: At merchant partners such as Wendy’s, Bluetooth Beacons are used at the in-store register. Make sure your BLUETOOTH is turned on, then PIN IN to the CurrentC app and tell the cashier you’re using CurrentC to pay. The beacon light will turn GREEN when ready, then TOUCH your phone to the beacon. Your order total will appear in the app, and you will approve to finalize your payment.
BLUETOOTH BEACONS AT DRIVE-THRU: At drive-thru restaurants like Wendy’s, Bluetooth Beacons are used in the drive-thru. Make sure your BLUETOOTH is turned on, then PIN IN to the CurrentC app and tell the drive-thru cashier you’re using CurrentC to pay. Your order will appear in the app so you can approve your payment while keeping your phone in your hand.
