Why Your Business Should Accept Electronic Payments

Increase Sales

Research shows that the ability to accept credit cards can increase a businesses revenue by as much as 25 percent. Expanding your scope of payment methods makes your services or products more readily available to current and potential customers. The main benefit of credit cards is that they are convenient and popular payment method for both customers as well as merchants.  Customers don’t typically have the cash on hand like they used, but do carry credit and debit cards giving them the ability to make purchases with ease.  Customers appreciate the option of an additional and convenient way to pay.

Improve Cash Flow

Electronic transaction processing can help speed up the credit card payment process. Instead of waiting for checks to clear, or 30, 60, or even 90 days for invoices to be paid, funds resulting from credit and debit card transactions are deposited directly into your bank account, often within 48 hours. Electronic payments will enable faster payment cycles, which lead to improved cash flow and decreased billing overhead – a significant benefit and welcomed relief for any business.

Giving your customers another way to pay for their purchases can help boost your average sale.  Studies have shown that customers paying with credit or debit cards typically spend about 20 percent more than when paying with cash or check.

Automated acceptance and settlement flow allows the monies from your transactions to be directly deposited into your bank account. This electronic process is more efficient and less time consuming so you don’t have to worry about outstanding funds.

Lower Costs

Having your company accept credit cards can help with operational costs and cut down on overhead.  This happens with electronic payment processing as you remove the need to send invoices and manage your account receivables.
