Small Business Series: Accept All Major Credit Cards
Welcome to Kyle Joseph Steffel‘s Small Business Series! This part of the Small Business Series will feature different ways small businesses can reach out to there consumers wallet on the go without the exchange of cash or check. Yes, I am talking about cashless transactions on the fly.
Recently, companies like Intuit, PayPal, and others have come out with credit card readers that can be attached to a small business owners phone to complete a credit card transaction on site, away from the small businesses home office.
For example, an antique dealer could sell an antique dresser at one of their numerous weekend shows and the customer could pay for the product right then and there. The customer is satisfied with the product and the antique dealer is comforted in knowing the money from the transaction will be deposited into their business account within the next 2 – 3 business days.
