In today’s business world, we find ourselves constantly in motion. From meeting clients to tending a customer’s needs on-site we are always on the move. With technology gearing us for the mobile requirements of business, we are constantly finding new ways to get things done. For those business owners who are on-site and out of the office, there is technology that can keep you going and offer convenience for your customers and clients.
With mobile phones becoming the go to tech for all business owners, credit card processing via your smartphone is now an option and must have for all businesses that travel. With the constant need for fast processing, convenience, and professionalism, mobile payment processing shows how dedicated your company is to you customer’s needs. Here are some benefits and facts about mobile credit card processing.
It used to be that to take a credit card payment you had to call in the card, make a copy of the information, wait until you were back in the office and process the card. This was a time consuming process that was also frowned up for security reasons. Many customers were leery of having their credit card information on a piece of paper being carried around town.
Now with mobile credit card readers, you can easily swipe the card, take the payment, and email a receipt. The entire process takes only a few minutes and your customer is confident that their credit card information is safe. This will keep you on the move as you leave from one customer to another with no need to visit the office at the end of the day.
In the past, receipts were the way of keeping record of credit card purchases. Now with almost every business process being computerized, keeping record of purchases is easier. With mobile payments, you can keep an accurate record of payments made without the need to write anything down.
The credit card reader you choose is connected to a merchant account that will automatically track all transactions made. When the time comes to update your bookkeeping, simply log into your account and view the transactions. This puts an end to the clutter of hundreds of receipts and notes.
In business, your image is as important as the products and services you offer. If you are constantly on the go and your customers require a commute to reach, mobile credit card processing is the solution for you. It offers the freedom to stay on the road and reach your customers on time, rather than taking several trips to the office to process the cards. Once you have met with your customer, you will have the appearance of professionalism when you are able to slide their credit card on-site and email them a receipt that they will receive before you leave.
Not every business offers the luxury of staying in the office. Whether you mow lawns, make pizzas, or fix computers, mobile credit card processing can help save time and offer a convenience to your customers. Look into the new credit card readers for smartphones and see if your business can benefit from its ease of use and versatility.
