“Accepting credit cards is a must for any business,” says Chad Brooks of Business News Daily. He writes that businesses that don’t accept credit cards are missing out. Customers across North America are proving that credit cards are the payment methods of choice these days. When businesses don’t accept them, they end up losing out on a lot of customers. Accepting credit cards, it seems, is just common sense.
Why turn away your customers? Could there be a worse way to run your business? Your customers are the most important people to your company. What good is turning them off going to do? By allowing your customers to pay with their credit cards, you are providing a great convenience. People simply don’t like walking around with cash in their pockets anymore.
It’s much safer to carry plastic only. Not to mention, it encourages your customers to spend more money with you. When one is expected to have either enough cash or exact change, it makes the entire shopping experience that much more difficult. As Brooks reveals, “consumers now also expect that merchants accept credit cards, making cash-only business models a thing of the past.”
Getting set up with a POS terminal in order to accept credit cards is actually easier than you may think. In fact, Canadian POS Corporation has been known to get merchants up and running with new terminals in as little as three days. Once you’re accepting credit cards, you’ll enjoy the ability to no longer lose customers who aren’t keen on doing business with cash-only companies.
