An independent retailer has boosted his monthly sales by £600 after he introduced the Zapper payment service into his store.

Calum Fairnie, of Spar Mote Park in Plymouth, runs one of 20 Spar stores across Plymouth, Exeter and Torquay currently rolling out Zapper’s services following a successful trial. The app allows customers to pay for goods using their mobile phones and they can also receive loyalty vouchers for repeat purchases.

Mr Fairnie told RN: “Zapper has been available to customers for a few months now and customer sales from this service alone have increased from £200 a month to currently over £900 a month. The app is great and definitely encourages shoppers to come in more often to earn their loyalty rewards.”
