Little Businesses, Big Dreams
Making a name for yourself can be hard, as an individual and a business. With that in mind, small businesses need to do everything they can save on costs and increase revenue. Those costs may vary, from inventory, payroll (with the exception of interns, read as: free labor), and supplies, to potential fines and fees. One sort of fee is that for processing cards and credit transactions. This may push some small businesses towards cash-only policies. However, is this the best solution?
No Mr./Ms. Merchant, no it is not
Studies show that more and more people prefer to use card and plastic over paper (#savetheamazon). Businesses are finding that up to 75% of people prefer to use credit or debit cards, and a study by Dun & Bradstreet found that consumers using cards spend up to 12-18% more than their cash-carrying counterparts. By processing cards, a business could take the perceived cost of processing fees, and turn it into increased profits due to the amount of increased transactions that they would experience. A data analysis company for small businesses, Womply, conducted their own study that found that local businesses have had a 7% growth in revenue from card transactions alone over a two year period. With increased growth, more spending, and a preference for it over the more classical methods, every small business should be looking to move away from cash and putting an emphasis on newer transaction methods.
