Why do You Need a Smartphone Credit Card Reader?

by | Feb 28, 2017 | FInancial Service

You may think that because you have a POS terminal that includes a credit card reader at the brick and mortar location that you do not need a smartphone credit card reader, but you are wrong. In todays economy, the competition is stiff, you must be able to go to where the business is if you want to stay afloat and pull ahead of the rest of the pack. A smartphone credit card reader lets you take payments on the spot from anywhere but that is not the only reason you need to have this equipment.

Consumer Trust

Unfortunately, today, fraud is a huge concern for consumers. Calling in an order for delivery and then having to give your credit card information out over the phone can make some consumers feel a bit unsettled. It can make people feel uncomfortable to rattle off credit card information over the phone. It could cause you to lose a sale. If your delivery staff is outfitted with readers, they could collect the payment when the goods are delivered. It helps consumers to feel more confident in your services.

Other Benefits

As a small business owner, you are likely invited to community events to sell your products and services. Traditionally that meant having to provide invoices, do a cash only sale and it even meant having to exclude your business because it was just too much of hassle. Today you can say yes! With a credit card reader, right on your smartphone you can effortlessly take payments from anywhere and:

  • Expand your customer base
  • Never lose a sale
  • Enjoy quick payment processing

It is the smarter way to do business. Make the sale right on the spot and look forward to fast transactions with equipment from American Merchant.
