Cash-only businesses are becoming increasingly rare. Merchants understand that most consumers like to have a variety of payment options. Security and convenience are prominent benefits of accepting credit cards in your business. Transacting electronic payments can also mean less exposure to check and cash fraud and theft.
The electronic payment industry is highly regulated in order to protect the sensitive and private personal information involved. Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance is mandatory for any business that accepts credit cards. Any business that does not maintain PCI compliance is at a greater risk for security breaches that can result in devastating consequences.
The technology and processing equipment TransFirst® provides is state-of-the-art and compliant with PCI Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) for optimal security. It helps safeguard electronic payment transactions and protect cardholders against the theft and misuse of their personal information. By achieving and maintaining PCI compliance in your business, you can establish trust with your customers that their sensitive credit or debit card information is protected.
Merchants rely on TransFirst for payment solutions that meet the unique needs of their business, including ProcessNow® Mobile and ProcessNow Register — which use tablet and app-based solutions to accept payments. Merchants can use either one, or both. All payment information is managed through one account on TransFirst’s online payment management and gateway system.
Choose ProcessNow Register as your main point-of-sale (POS) business management solution and expand your reach with ProcessNow Mobile. It’s a great answer to your questions about how to accept payments quickly, securely and efficiently from anywhere in-store or out in the field. Merchants are no longer restricted to making sales from behind the counter. Mobile payment acceptance is a space-saving alternative to adding additional payment counters and cash register terminals. It frees up valuable retail space and customers’ valuable time.
Secure mobile payments are the ideal solution for service industries, tradeshows, farmer’s markets, craft fairs and food truck vendors. ProcessNow Mobile can also become a merchant’s best line-busting tool to take your customer’s payment and send them on their way. The app-enabled tablet can help eliminate long waits in the checkout line and speed up the transaction process. Many find it can help decrease abandoned purchases and increase overall sales, return visits, customer satisfaction and customer loyalty.
Remember, secure transactions are good for all involved; they lead to satisfied customers and business success!
