Accepting Card Payments

On the ipadAccepting Card Payments

In January 2015 £46.5bn was spent on cards in the UK. Of this £15.4bn was spent on-line.

Regardless of what type of business you run, the question is “Could accepting card payments benefit your business?”

There is a common misconception that accepting card payments is something only retailers need to offer, naturally it is easy to see why as we all use cards when making purchases. However, taking payment by card offers several benefits, take these examples;

  • Cashflow, when chasing an invoice you could ask for immediate payment or include a link to a payment screen when sending invoices by email or pdf
  • Quicker Payment, for tradesmen or those undertaking work at customer premises, why not take an immediate card payment? No more cheques, no more bounced payments
  • Up-Selling, for all businesses, retail or professional, you can remove barriers to up-sales by offering a flexible and immediate payment method
