How Accepting Credit Cards Makes You A Super Hero

Super heroes have been popular for decades. But with the recent onslaught of Hollywood films bringing comic book characters to life on the big screen, it can be argued that super heroes have never been more popular. From DC’s recent Aquaman film, which attracted massive audiences to the forthcoming Avengers: Endgame from Marvel Studios, there are few movies that are more highly anticipated and talked about.

Being a super hero is obviously a pretty big deal. So, it’s probably not the worst idea in the world to position yourself as a super hero in the eyes of your customers. How can you do that? Believe it or not, your acceptance of credit cards is something your customers greatly appreciate and even love you for. And there are several reasons why.  

You help them build up their rewards points.

By accepting credit cards in your store, you give your customers the opportunity to accumulate points on the cards that have such benefits. As a result, making a purchase in your store gives a customer a lot more than the item itself. It takes him/her a few steps closer to getting free airline tickets, hotel stays, car rentals and myriad of other freebies to select from.

On Canstar.com, Elizabeth McLardy and William Jolly elaborate further. “Think about how you use your credit card and then choose which program would benefit you most,” they advise consumers, “You can spend credit card rewards points on all sorts of things, from flights and car hires to petrol and grocery shopping.”

You assist them with improving their credit scores.

Savvy consumers know exactly how to use their credit cards. They make purchases they can afford and pay off their balances in full every month. That way, they establish good credit – proving they can be trusted to borrow and pay back money. Your acceptance of credit cards enables your customers to better their credit ratings.

“The use of a credit card is directly connected to your credit score, the report card for borrowers,” explains Jeremy M. Simon on CreditCards.com, “The responsible way you handle your credit card is recorded in your credit history for lenders to review. Your high score in that credit report shows how creditworthy you are deemed by other lenders and that you pay your bills on time and spend conservatively.”

You allow them to conveniently shop online.

Canadians love using the internet as a shopping mall. Going online to shop is an increasingly popular pastime that provides consumers with a great convenience. Ordering items to your doorstep can be done at any time of day. Online shopping allows people to avoid crowded shopping malls and packed parking lots. This is what makes an online store such a popular destination during the holiday season.

“Not only are credit cards convenient to use for daily point-of-purchase shopping, but they’re also much easier to use online,” note McLardy and Jolly, “Most sites also give the added benefit of saving your credit card details. If you’re using a reputable website that you trust, this can be a great way to save time on future shops.”
