The use of debit and credit cards in everyday transactions is not merely ubiquitous in society anymore. It is now the payment processing standard by which we conduct the majority of our business. The statistics support this idea. Statistic Brain reports that in 2012, three out of four college students in America used credit cards. As for all payments made throughout the world, Visa card transactions comprise more than half of them. It is thought that by the year 2017, merchant credit card services will account for $370 billion in business, according to Forrester Research.
That stated, there are always innovations to be made. For example, if you run a restaurant in the United States, you may benefit from the example of your Canadian counterparts, who use mobile credit card processors to allow customers to pay for their meals. There are multiple benefits to this approach.
For one, the customers do not have to get up from their seats to go to a terminal. Instead, they can make the necessary payment conveniently from their seats. This is particularly helpful if they are in a hurry to get to their next destination. This transaction can be achieved in a short period of time, and it eliminates the step in which the waiter or waitress has to take the card to get it processed at a terminal away from the customers’ tables.
It may also give your customers greater peace of mind. With these mobile payment processors, the credit card never has to leave the person’s sight. Furthermore, this paradigm is just as safe as other card processing options, particularly because the processors are up-to-date with PCI requirements, ensuring that customer information is kept confidential.
