“Clear Secure’s mobile identity verification platform with Tappit’s technology will soon offer clients a seamless experience for consumers to verify their identity and age for age-restricted purchases, like alcohol, all on their mobile phones and without handling cash or cards,” Clear said in a release.
The companies will together offer a range of touchless payment solutions to enhance the fan experience as stadia and other venues increase capacity limits.
The CEO of Tappit, Jason Thomas, said, “Our first priority at Tappit is to ensure a safe, frictionless experience for fans — allowing them to support their favorite teams or artists without worrying about spreading germs, or if their personal information is at risk.”
Last month, Stifel Nicolaus analyst Scott Devitt maintained a Buy rating on Clear Secure with a price target of $54 (upside potential of 26.6%). Devitt expects that the company will report a loss of $0.18 per share in the third quarter of 2021.
