November 30, 2014
If you find yourself rarely possessing cash in your wallet or purse, you're not alone as the use of hard currency this holiday season is making way for alternatives. Credit cards and debit cards have been driving down the presence of cash in stores recently. But this year, there are even more alternatives as Jacksonville-based Bi-Lo Holdings Inc. recently reached an agreement with Apple Pay to use smartphones to pay for groceries at all their stores, including Winn-Dixie supermarkets. The Apple Pay application allows a smartphone to tap into a store's payment system and process the cost of goods purchased through the phone. The app was developed this year by Apple, and Bi-Lo Vice President of Digital Marketing Bert DuMars said the company went with Apple Pay mainly as an option of convenience for customers.
