Cashless not working at AmFam Field
The debut year of the “cashless” system at AmFam Field in Milwaukee, WI has not been received warmly with many of the in-seat beer vendors who work there ever since the day we were allowed back on June 25th.
When the beer vendors were finally included in using the new cashless system, it began with a confusing paying system where fans at the ballpark had to pay for their drinks with the use of a QR code attached to the vendors’ beer tubs that was eventually upgraded about a month later to use of an actual wireless credit card reading device. Other problems that persist today include much slower alcohol transactions than with the traditional system where cash was accepted, devices “crashing” causing for critical time/money consuming reboots, not every seat of the ballpark can get a wireless connection, not enough working devices for all of the vendors who come in to work thus causing layoffs. Problems like these truly become evident when crowds are at a capacity such as these playoff games.
Some beer vendors (including myself) which are employed by the stadium concessionaire (Milw. SportService/Delaware North Companies) claim that their commissions & tips have been reduced by hundreds of dollars (compared to working the 2018 playoff games) for the various reasons mentioned above due to the stadium deciding to go cashless.
