Undoubtedly, your small business has taken a hit the likes you never expected. As a Canadian business owner, you’ve been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic to the point where it feels like your company may have no future. Does this ring true to you? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Business owners all over Canada are feeling the effects of having their doors closed for nearly three months.
At Canadian POS, we’re proud to inform you that your doors don’t need to be open in order for you to continue processing sales. With Converge, you can accept credit cards and debit cards from anywhere you may be. All you need handy is a mobile device. Your smartphone or your tablet will work just fine!

With COVID-19 keeping many businesses closed, it’s important to find ways to continue generating revenue. Are you able to deliver goods directly to your customers? Can you offer curbside pickup? In either scenario, a traditional POS terminal is unnecessary. Simply show up with your smartphone and have your customer process his/her payment on the spot!
“By coupling your smartphone or tablet with a credit card reading add-on, it’s easy to process transactions – whether you’re at a conference, a client’s remote work site or simply at home,” writes Bennett Conlin on BusinessNewsDaily.com, “You can even take your products on the road to trade shows and accept payments at the show by using your mobile device and mobile credit card reader.”
We join you in being eager for the coronavirus pandemic to be a thing of the past. When that time finally comes, it will be very important for you to get back out into the world to grow your brand. Attending trade shows, for example, is a proven way to grow your reach. The next time you are a vendor at a trade show, don’t worry about having to hook up your POS terminal. Your iPad will easily suffice as a way to accept credit and debit payments for any sales you make!
“You don’t have to bring a bulky credit card terminal to every event, as your mobile phone and the add-on device take up minimal space and can allow your business to make money,” reminds Conlin, “It’s a simple process that helps make payment processing easier for small businesses”.
