Reacting to the photo of the Kunu hawker with POS for cashless transactions, a Twitter user, @Olusegun_Peters wrote, “This woman has a fast forward mindset than even our government”.
@Ikman5, “Then what is stopping some businesses that have higher turnover than the kunu hawker from using POS?”
Talk2Abby_, “I love this woman’s approach, there’s no excuse for not making payment easier for your customers”.
“I don’t really know how pos works. But I’m assuming they collect charges for every transaction. So say she’s selling a bottle for #100. How much will be the charge on that, About 2%? How much is she making from each bottle”.
