Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) showcases contactless payments with digital signage


The six-foot tall Visa connected screen is collecting donations of $2 or $5 for the TIFF pocket fund, which provides funding for young people that want to access TIFF’s educational programming.

Payments are accepted from any Visa paywave enabled credit card or smartphone authenticated with Visa card. Visa collaborated with ingenico for its connected screen to accept payments – classic case of how IoT trends will impact payments capability embedded in more devices.


Also on display was augmented reality technology created by Facecake. Using an Xbox Kinect camera, festival-goers were allowed to digitally try various movie costumes. Facecake works with Visa’s Checkout online payments solution.
