Technology is dramatically changing the way companies can do business in the field. Once you deliver a product or service to your customer, you want make sure you get paid.
While cash is the most immediate form of payment, it isn’t practical for customers to have enough cash on hand to cover large invoices, nor is it safe for you to carry large sums around with you. With checks, the seller carries the risk that they will bounce.
Thanks to breakthroughs with mobile technology, you can receive payments by swiping your customer’s credit card through a device that easily attaches to a smart phone (Android, iPhone, etc.) or tablet (iPad, Nook, Galaxy, etc.).
Whether you’re a sole proprietor, a family business, a start-up or a major corporation, Your Merchant Guru can customize rate plans and devices to meet your needs.
Mobile checkout technology is ideal for:
- Service call contractors (plumbers, electricians, HVAC, handymen, appliance repair).
- Food delivery (restaurants, produce, dairy, grocery).
- Product sales (cosmetics, newspaper delivery).
- Taxi, limo drivers.
Dottie sells cosmetics to her friends, family and new people she meets through networking events and parties. She purchases her inventory in advance and resells them at parties.
When her monthly sales jumped from $650 to over $1,500, she realized lowering her rates would save her real money. She was ready to work with Your Merchant Guru.
We negotiated a credit card processing rate plan for her that beats the best rates offered by PayPal, Google and Square. Now, when she hosts makeover parties, she can ring up purchases on the spot, swipe customer credit cards for instant payment and email receipts to her clients.
Customers who appreciate the convenience of credit card processing often buy more products than they would if held to the limited amount of cash in their purse. Sales are up, allowing Dottie to expand her product line into jewelry and accessories.
