In today’s economy it just makes good business sense to find ways to cut costs without cutting service.
And it’s even more important if you have a retail store.
Whether you are ready to accept credit cards for the first time, or you are looking to get a better deal than you currently have, we can help you accept credit cards for less money.
Save Money & Get a Free Terminal
Well, besides getting a competitive rate quote from merchant account providers, you really can get a free credit card terminal.
Why would merchant services companies do this?
That’s a great question.
To answer it I’ll reference what cell phone companies have done for years. Namely, give away phones (or provide sizeable rebates) as an incentive to get you to sign up.
The reason cell phone companies (and merchant account providers) do this is because they want you to choose them over their competitors. And since the real money is in the monthly ongoing fees, rather than a one time payment for equipment, you can understand why a lot of merchant account providers now have free credit card terminals when you sign up.
There are, however, a few factors to consider before you sign up with a merchant account provider.
- Are there any early termination fees?
- Do they offer free replacement of damaged/defective equipment
- Will they offer you free supplies (terminal paper, etc.)
- Make sure your “free” terminal isn’t really a terminal lease in disguise
As long as you follow these guidelines you should be able to get a free credit card terminal, and possibly save money on your processing fees as well.
Just be sure to double check that all their promises are in writing before you sign on the dotted line.
