I'm amazed when I ask small business owners if they accept credit cards from their customers and some say “no”. These business owners tell me that they cannot afford to pay for a merchant account because they don’t make enough sales or simply that they are not ready. I ask them, ready for what? Many times, they just don’t have an answer. I believe it’s because they are trying to figure out if they are actually in business to do business. As any business owner knows, there can be risks in running a business. What is your underlying fear in taking a risk & propelling your business to the next level?
In business, the goal is to make a profit. You can’t make a profit if you don’t make sales. One way to boost your sales is to offer your customers flexibility in paying for their purchases. Accepting credit cards from your customers offers you another avenue for generating sales and building your business. A merchant account should be a part of your basic business “toolkit”. And don’t forget that your merchant account fees are considered a business expense (the cost in doing business).
Credit cards are a dominant form of payment, next to cash, for products & services even during slow economic times. Research shows that customers will spend an average of 30% more on purchases when using credit cards. What would a 30% increase in sales volume do for your business?
It is time for the small business owner to think BIG! Think purposely and expansively about how you will effectively grow your business. Despite the current economic conditions, there are many opportunities for the small business owner to advance his/her business in the marketplace. But it will take action and enlarging your vision to see that you are able to afford a merchant account. By not having a merchant account, you are simply driving your customers to your competitors that do offer this service.
There are many options in the marketplace for the business owner to select in setting up their new merchant account. You want to select the company that provides you with personalized service, attractive rates and knows your business needs and your budget.
