Covid-19: Paywave

Is BNZ and the banking industry doing anything to encourage businesses to make paywave their preferred method of transaction?

My understanding is businesses are ripped off by the fee they are charged for a transaction that would otherwise be cheap (eftpos) being done as a paywave (visa debit) transaction.

I went to KFC drive thru yesterday and the only way to pay was to handle the eftpos machine, and not be offered hand sanitizer. Then have to eat the meal that I had just purchased.
