Why accept card payments?
Increasingly more and more customers now expect to pay for their purchases using a card when they are shopping; or to pay for goods and services, whether it be online or in store.
Think about your own experience and apply it to your business. When you go to the shops do you pay by cash, use a cheque or get out a card?
To help decide whether to take cards or not, here are some reasons why accepting cards could improve business:
- Customers increasingly expect to be able to pay by card.
- Potential cost savings from holding less cash – saving on the security required to look after this money and trips to the bank to pay-in takings. Banks typically charge 0.50p – 0.89p per £100 cash deposited, whereas card charges for £100 transaction can be as low as 0.35p
- Improved cash flow with less support on financing such as using an overdraft or loan.
- Easier to make a sale, if customers do not have enough cash on them at the time, they could use a card instead.
