Accepting credit and debit cards as methods of payment has become the norm for businesses throughout Canada. Sure, there are still merchants – just a few – who only accept cash. And they are quickly beginning to realize that doing so is only going to diminish their customer base in the long run. Canadians have shown that they prefer to pay with plastic.
But for business owners, accepting Visa, MasterCard and Interac cards has never been so convenient. Over the past couple of weeks, we have blogged about the benefits that come with using wireless POS terminals. At Canadian POS Corporation, we offer our clients wireless terminals through our new Ingenico Telium2 product line. And there are many reasons to take advantage of this.
Convenience. This is a word that gets used a lot on the Canadian POS Corporation Blog. This is because convenience is automatically provided to your customers when you accept credit and debit cards. Wireless terminals, however, make things that much more convenient to you. Compact and lightweight, these terminals allow you to accept payments wherever your customers are – whether they are in your store or not!
Great for delivery. As we blogged about just last week, wireless terminals were practically made for the food delivery business. Delivery personnel are now able to bring the terminals directly to the doors of their customers. The transactions are done right at the point of the delivery so there is no waiting for the employee to return to the restaurant to put the charge through.
“I ordered some food through a restaurant I used to frequent,” admitted one of our clients last week, “I automatically thought they’d be delivering with a terminal. But when the person on the phone asked for my credit card number, I was surprised. I even mentioned how ‘old school’ I thought that was and how I was uncomfortable giving out the number. I doubt I’ll be ordering from them again.”
No more wires. Believe it or not, some business owners suffer through a mess of wires thanks to all of the plugged-in technology they need to run their businesses. With a wireless POS terminal, there is one less wire to worry about. Our long range terminals make it so that you can accept credit and debit cards from anywhere in your store or restaurant. A traditional register doesn’t have to clutter your space anymore.
Less errors. With wireless payment processing comes a lot less difficulty in putting through charges. In fact, the work is all done by the customer. He or she punches in his or her PIN code, adds a tip if necessary and makes off with a printed out receipt, all on the spot. Transactions are now completed a lot quicker than they ever could be before. No matter the type of business you run, going wireless saves you time and energy.
