Okay, so we’ve learned all about why accepting credit cards at your place of business is common sense. But what about debit cards? Is accepting Interac payments as lucrative an idea as accepting Visa, MasterCard and Discover cards? You better believe it! In fact, a debit card payment is arguably the most popular way for Canadians to pay for their purchases.
And that shouldn’t be too surprising. Canadians love convenience. And debit cards provide shoppers with the convenience of being able to have money automatically withdrawn from their bank accounts when they make purchases. That way, they ensure themselves that no charges are placed on credit and that no transactions are unaffordable. Accepting debit cards, therefore, is practically mandatory in Canada!
Increased Sales. Okay, by now you know that accepting both credit and debit cards is bound to increase your sales and gain you more customers. It should actually go without saying. By not accepting plastic, these days, you’re guaranteeing yourself the need to turn away customers. And how will that help your business? You want more, not less customers. Give them the payment options they’re looking for.
Added Revenue. Many merchants throughout Canada choose to charge small convenience fees to their customers or offer them cash back when debit cards are used in their stores. If you choose to, you can begin an entirely new revenue stream by offering your customers the convenience of paying with their debit cards. Be sure to make it a small fee. Again, you don’t want to turn customers away.
Speed Things Up. By accepting Interac, you are able to get more customers through the checkout in a much quicker time. No more fumbling for change. No more searching for exact cash. Swiping a card is easy. And Canadians are used to it. Within seconds, a PIN can be punched in and a transaction can be completed. Your customers will appreciate the “express” experience of paying with debit.
