So many people carry debit cards and credit cards, today, that plastic has become the most common method of payment. In fact, over half of your customers don’t carry cash a majority of the time. This means, if your onsite system doesn’t allow you to process credit cards, you are missing out on significant business growth.
With an increasing number of software solutions for business that allow you to do just this, it makes no sense not to accept plastic today. There are card-reading squares that you can plug into your smart phone or tablet to process credit cards if you don’t have the space to invest in a card reading terminal or register.
While there is usually a monthly fee that comes with these capabilities, the amount you pay is nothing compared to the amount of money you will make as a result. These rates can be as low as $5 dollars a month if you choose the right system, and some can be cheaper if you select an application that integrates with your Apparel ERP or other business software.
Such an application is available from ShopWorx, and allows you to process credit cards easily and quickly through your onsite system. The system uses an authorize.net payment gateway, which you access through a merchant account that you set up separately.
The plug-in is called “e-authorize,” and allows communication between your system and authorize.net so that you can expand your business and reach as many potential customers as possible. Stop limiting your business by only accepting cash, and invest in e-authorize, today.
