In our unwavering commitment to bring you news on the intersection of credit processing, technology, and benefits for your business, we find it may be time to talk about phones.
Not “telephones,” necessarily — which imply landlines, fixed locations and in some cases rotary dials and being put on hold — but “phones,” which insinuate portability, and having a miniature computer in your pocket, demanding rather constant attention.
From the Korea Times comes an article headlined “Falling in the Smartphone Pit,” where we learn that “in public areas it’s increasingly common to seepeople so engrossed in smartphones that they completely ignore people around them. They interact more with these treasured devices than with colleagues or lovers sitting right in front of them…In classrooms and offices the situation is similar as students and employees make compulsive use of their smartphones.”
Well, we at AVPS are pleased to announce there may be an upside to constant phone use: We are fully equipped to help set up your merchant account to accept checks-by-phone. Rather than thinking of this as one of the “retro” aspects of a business – like a rotary dial — where merchants would call banks to verify checks being written in stores, we help bring this aspect of business into the 21st century, by offering:
- No more charge backs and reserve accounts
- No waiting for mailed checks
- Next day deposits
- Online 24/7 Convenience – no waiting in bank lines
- Offer more payment options for your customers
- Online payments gateway – no software required
- Quick and easy setup
In other words, “dialing” that phone can be just as fast as any other digital maneuver in terms of clearing customers’ money, and getting into your account.
Nearly any industry may use check-by-phone services to improve their business transactions. Law firms, Doctors Offices, Shipping Companies, Telemarketing companies, Sales, Collections, Credit Counseling Services, Insurance Agents, Dating Services, MLM and multiple other industries may benefit from the use of check-by-phone services.
Primary benefits of check-by-phone include:
- Fewer regulations to complete the process.
- No more “CHECKS IN THE MAIL”
And by “mail” we mean “surface mail” — something else that may be going the way of those rotary dials. But phones — those are still useful. Call up AVPS to see about setting up your check-by-phone benefits today.
