Many customers will say their favorite four-letter word is ‘sale.’ Sales give consumers a chance to get quality products and services at a fraction of the price. It might be something they had their eye on for a long time, or maybe it was more of an impulse. Either way, the thrill of cashing in on a sale is immeasurable.
The nature of sales is that they exist for a limited time. If a customer doesn’t have cash on them at the time, they could miss out on an exciting opportunity. That’s why many customers are grateful for credit cards. Cards allow the customer to benefit from an amazing deal right at the moment they spot it.
Card payments online and offline
A customer can use their credit card to make the most of an online sale, but that’s not the only place they can use it. Customers swipe offline too. What customers and vendors might not know is there’s a service that combines both online and offline card transactions in one safe, secure portal. That service is Charge.com, and in addition to credit cards and debit cards, it also processes checks.
If the customer has attended a sale in person, they can swipe their card on the electronic keypad, or they can use the NFC on the cashier’s mobile phone to pay for their purchases. NFC readers can read a credit card as effectively as an electronic keypad, and sometimes, they read even faster. Plus, they’re paperless, which is better for the environment.
Instant verification for instant gratification
Sometimes, a customer catches the sale in its last few minutes. This doesn’t have to be a problem, as long as the vendor is using Charge.com. With instant verification, the transaction will be approved well before the buzzer. And once the payment goes through, the cash will reach the vendor’s account in 24 to 72 hours.
Vendors can get started with Charge.com at any time, and the application process is completely free. Other free services offered by Charge.com include card processing, online shopping carts, programing costs, and check acceptance. Cards can also be processed through free mobile apps.
Don’t miss a sale over bad credit
Vendors sometimes find themselves in sticky situations. Charge.com offers service to all kinds of businesses, even those who have bad credit scores. They don’t judge credit scores. So if a seller can’t get a credit line anywhere else, they can get still set up a merchant account at Charge.com.
In the spirit of restoring vendor reputations, Charge.com gives vendors the option of routing credit card payments in their own business name. Vendors get to decide how their name appears on their customer’s credit card statements, offering an extra layer of professionalism.
