Automated coin-operated photo booths have been a part of our lives for more than 100 years. Who hasn’t got a picture with their favorite high school sweet heart?
Photo booths were historically used for passport photographs. But over the last few decades they have grown in popularity around the world. Today, Photo Sticker machines are huge in Asia and growing in popularity around the rest of the world. Being coin-operated, many photo booth operators are missing out on the huge growth in cashless payments made by consumers, especially in the younger demographic, who are the main users of photo booths.
Some say more than 50% of younger consumers don’t carry cash around with them anymore and prefer using mobile wallet payment methods like Apple Pay or Android Pay via contactless card and mobile devices equipped with Near Field Communication (NFC).
