Obuv Rossii GC will release Arithmetic electronic bracelets

Obuv Rossii GC decided to release electronic bracelets for the Arithmetic loyalty system, which operates in the stores of its retail network. With the help of bracelets, buyers and users of the Arithmetic system will be able to make instant payments at the box office in all Shoe stores of Russia.

A test batch of bracelets will be delivered to Shoe stores of Russia in the Siberian District. In the future, the company plans to produce up to 20 thousands of such bracelets per year and will distribute them throughout its entire retail.

“The idea of ​​introducing a payment bracelet appeared as a result of market analysis and research of our customers' behavior. The new tool will allow you to pay with one touch to those who do not carry a bank card and / or do not want to attach the card to the phone, these are primarily children, youth, pensioners. So our customers will save time and pay for goods and services in the most convenient way for them. The synchronization of the bracelet and the Arithmetic mobile application will help the client always know the balance of funds on the card, view the history of operations, replenish the balance of funds for free and make payments and / or transfers.
