Greg joined the BOUNCE crew in its infancy thanks to a chance discussion with a friend at a flying trapeze class. As soon as his feet hit the tramps, he knew it was where he wanted to be! Electronic payments have been key to running this small business; here Greg shares his Cashless Pioneer story with MasterCard and BOUNCE’s aspirations to be completely cashless one day.
I came to BOUNCE Dubai from the original BOUNCE down-under in Melbourne, Australia, where I spent the last four years free-falling around and pretending to work, but having far too much fun in the process.
Dubai is a young and energetic city and the response we have had from the public at BOUNCE has been incredible. We have people queuing outside on a daily basis just waiting for us to open.
Customers can now use cards to pay for their sessions at BOUNCE, with the majority choosing to pay online in advance, so there is no need for them to carry cash – or lose their spare change during an energetic bouncing session! Electronic payments also mean that our instructors can meet clients anywhere in our massive venue to accept payments, which is super convenient for everyone. We have people of all ages and walks of life visiting us, so offering flexibility in our payment options is really important. Online and card payments have become increasingly popular among our customers as the quickest and easiest way to pay and we hope to become totally cashless in the near future!
I absolutely recommend that other small businesses start accepting electronic payments. As a fast-paced business we need to operate quickly, so for us cashless is the obvious way forward.
