Visa’s recent POS upgrades include contactless technology transactions. With the help of this technology, customers can make payments through their devices or cards. With these types of transactions, customers need not have security concerns, as it’s fully secured. Moreover, POS terminals now have a sensory branding feature.

Larry Fitzgerald even visited Misfit to use contactless technology and ensure the effectiveness of the POS terminals. According to Fitzgerald, he’ll be available for any help Visa needs in Minneapolis.
