How to accept credit or debit cards

You will sell more if you accept credit cards and debit cards. Here are three reasons why:

  1. You get more customers. Many people have credit cards even when they don't have cash. By accepting credit cards you give your customer more options, and better increase your chances of getting the sale.
  2. People will buy more from you. If someone can only pay you with the cash in their pocket, they will spend less. People don't always carry a lot of cash; people are more protective of cash; and for a variety of other reasons, people spend more when they can pay with their credit card.
  3. People will buy more often. Instead of making your customers wait until they have the cash in their pockets, get all of the sales you can as fast as you can right away.

If you do not already accept credit cards, you are slowing down your business. 

Today almost every business will accept credit cards, and you can too! It's a simple way to make more money and get more customers.

There is no charge for the account, but you will need to buy a credit card terminal (from about $99. and up) or software to use with your computer (for $39.) to use the merchant account.
