MUMBAI, (GNI): On World Elderly Day, Ingenico Group has joined forces with the Nana Nani Foundation to help senior citizens in adopting digital payments
Ingenico Group, the global leader in seamless payment, recently conducted a workshop on digital payments for senior citizens in partnership with the Nana Nani Foundation. The workshop was conducted at Nana Nani Park, Girgaum Chowpatty in Mumbai, and encouraged senior citizens to shift from cash to digital transactions.
The objective of the workshop was to promote cashless transactions and to teach the elderly to embrace digital payments. Representatives of Ingenico Group gave a detailed presentation on various payment methods and explained in detail the simple steps required to make online payments.
Commenting on this initiative, Sunith Menon, Managing Director of Ingenico India, said,“Owing to a lack of awareness around the necessary steps to be undertaken to safeguard against digital fraud, senior citizens are susceptible to fall prey to such cyber frauds. To become a digital economy, we need to educate and guide even the elderly on various digital payment methods. Owing to old age, many face difficulties in visiting banks, shops etc. to make any payment, which is why we need to highlight the convenience and ease with which digital transactions can be made. As India is moving towards a digitally dominant society, we want all stakeholders of the nation to participate to the fullest in making India a cashless country. We are glad to partner the Nana Nani Foundation as part of our endeavour to build a digitally inclusive society.”
One of the attendees of the workshop said“This workshop was very helpful and indeed motivating. While many of us would like to shift to digital payments there are many myths surrounding the digital world which are the cause of our apprehensions. We are living in a fast paced digital era and we do not wish to be left behind. As we are open to change, all we need is someone to guide us and help us embrace technology in our daily life.”
Participants at the workshop were shown live demonstrations of payments made using debit and credit cards on payment terminals, as well as through different online payment methods, and received guidelines to follow when making digital payments. Regular visitors to the Nana Nani Park actively participated in this workshop and also experienced hands-on payments through PoS devices. ends
