No matter the size or type of business you run, you need to be able to take credit and debit card payments. The most popular method of payment on face to face transactions is now a card; in fact, two out of every three transactions are now by card. We are sure you can see why this alarming statistic cannot be overlooked. And there are more reasons why you need to be able to accept cards: it is a simple fact that 175million consumers in the USA alone now carry at least one card. It is the most convenient payment method, especially with the latest technological advances.
Wireless Payment Options
The advent of wireless technology has allowed for more efficient card payment solutions; this is one reason why, if you have been taking payments for some years, if may be sensible to look for a more modern and up to date payment system. For example, have you used the latest, very popular swipe option? This utilises a card with a wireless chip that allows for it to be used without the need for a PIN. There is an upper limit on transactions for security, but it is very convenient, quick and instant.
A further reason to take card payments is that consumers are more likely to spend more money when paying by card, in fact around 20% more. The potential extra sales you could reap from taking cards is clear to see, and that is at very little cost. While convenient for your customers – it’s far quicker than searching for cash or writing a cheque – it is also more efficient for you. The time saved means less waiting, and as the transactions are instant, the money goes into your account immediately, with no need for a trip to the bank.
