Accepting credit cards is no longer a luxury or a supplementary option for your business – no matter your industry or customer or client base. If you’re not accepting credit cards, not only are you needlessly losing potentially very lucrative sales, but you’re also telling the world that you’re not ready for the new modern age – one that requires a business to accept electronic payment and, in doing so, to provide its clients and customers with more payment options. So what are some of the greatest advantages to accepting credit cards?
First, as we’ve mentioned, simply having that little sticker in your window that displays the logos of major credit card companies such as Visa, Mastercard, or American Express conveys professionalism to those walking by. They’ll know that, when they enter your store, they have more options for paying, and therefore, they’ll be more likely to pay. Further, they’ll even be able to purchase your goods and services, even if they may not have cash on hand at that moment – a benefit that really means more impulse buys and higher average tickets for transactions, and of course, this results in more profit for your business.
Moreover, you can have the added benefit of ease of transactions – with accepting credit cards from customers, it’s simply swipe and go, save those few transactions that require a little extra effort, whether it’s a re-swipe or confirmation of a customer’s identity should he or she happen to have no identification on them, or no debit card PIN. Accepting credit cards is faster, easier, and yes – even more secure – than accepting cash (especially considering the risk involved in having cold, hard cash on hand) or even the old-school format of checks.
Lastly, accepting credit cards will move you into the future. When you begin to finally get used to accepting credit cards, debit cards, and even gift cards, you’ll be better equipped to deal with the coming changes in the economic worldwide market, and new developments in the technologies and techniques used in accepting credit cards.
