MOBILE PAYMENTS 101: USE APPS TO SEND MONEY SAFELY
Reimbursing NEXT Village volunteers or others who pick up your groceries is easy with mobile applications like Venmo, PayPal, and Apple Pay. Most major banks also have a service that allows you to securely send payments to individuals. If you have a smartphone or computer, you can use these services to securely send money while minimizing contact with other people.
This is safer alternative to handing a volunteer cash before they go to the store and it is much easier for volunteers! During COVID-19, it allows you to social distance more thoroughly because volunteers can drop off your bags by your door without needing to exchange anything with you.
Emily Carter, a NEXT Village volunteer, will walk you through a few of the different options for mobile payments. If you need individual help after this workshop, we have many tech volunteers ready to assist you!
