Mobile shopping service Jisp’s 2020 founding date was positioned well to address the evolving payment practices in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Affordability and flexibility help the service stand out as a top solution for retailers and grocery stores that need to offer contact-free Home Delivery or Click & Collect.

Even once the pandemic is over, we’ll see permanent changes. For those customers filtering back to restaurants and bars, Jisp also helps out. It supports instant payment for table ordering as well as functions including Takeaway and Home Delivery.

Through the Jisp app, customers can skip the queue entirely, paying securely from mobile devices.

But their biggest standout accomplishment is becoming the very first UK company to provide a way to replace the till itself. At Jisp-powered retailers and convenience stores, customers can embark on contact-free shopping trips with the benefits of NFC technology and barcode scanning.

Through the Jisp app, customers can skip the queue entirely, paying securely from mobile devices. They’ll also receive the product information they need, allergen info to reviews of the item being purchased.

Jisp has also engaged up to 100,000 players within its online interactive quiz ‘Engage'.

Founded by CEO Julian Fisher, the Hampshire-based technology company’s service is an official vendor for the top wholesalers and retail players in the UK, including Bestway Wholesale, Booker Group Ltd., Nisa Retail and The Federation of Independent Retailers (NFRN), and has partnered with a range of industry insiders including Star Printers, Marin's UK, Maybe*, TLM Technologies and others.

Jisp has also engaged up to 100,000 players within its online interactive quiz ‘Engage,’ another example of the innovative approaches that have allowed the company to craft a seamless, safe, and easy customer journey in a rapidly changing world.
