In today’s increasingly mobile and technologically focused society it is not enough for your business to accept credit cards. In order to draw as big a customer base as possible while also providing the highest quality customer service you must constantly integrate new payment processing solutions. This makes your business more convenient and accessible for customers who are accustomed to a flexible and fluid shopping and service purchase model.
Mobile phone credit card processing enables you to take your business on the road, stepping out of the limitations of just a brick-and-mortar store or just a website to have the capability of accepting payments wherever you go. This means that whether you are purposely heading out into the field to seek out customers and offer specific services, or you just happen upon a customer interested in the type of products and services your business offers, as long as you have your mobile phone, you have the ability to accept payment. The versatility and convenience of this type of payment processing does not just secure these single sales. It also helps you build a customer base and maintain a reputation of being up-to-date, which is extremely important to many demographics, particularly young to middle-aged adults.
Some of the greatest benefits of having a wireless merchant account include:
- Affordable processing – cell phone payment processing is an exceptionally affordable form of payment processing. Each transaction incurs only a small fee, ensuring you make as much as possible on each sale or payment
- Security and confidentiality – many customers are resistant to the idea of typing their credit card information into a computer or handing over their card to make a payment. Most feel much more secure about transactions when their credit card does not leave their possession. With a mobile phone payment terminal you never have to take a card from a customer. Instead, just point your phone at the customer, let him swipe his card and sign the screen, and the transaction is complete
- Recordkeeping – Using wireless credit card processing you can easily keep track of important elements of your business, including your top-selling products, transaction reports, revenue, and other reports. This also lets you send convenient email receipts, which saves time, money, and paper
- Customize transactions – Accepting mobile phone payments takes the work out of customizing transactions. Right in the payment interface you can apply discounts, add tips or tax, divide payments, and more. This ensures accuracy and keeps your transactions smooth.
