Even if you’re a one-person business, you can easily take credit card payments from almost anywhere. PaySimple helps business owners take payments online, in person, or on a mobile device—wherever your customers happen to be.
Why should your business be taking credit card payments?
Customers have a lot of options today: they’re used to the speed of online shopping, one-click purchases, and swiping their credit cards to buy everything from furniture to french fries. This is the golden age of convenience for consumers, and businesses are offering increasingly more convenient payment solutions to stay competitive.
Taking credit card payments makes sense for most businesses today, even small, one-person operations, because of the benefits you get in exchange for minimal fees. While some business owners still avoid taking credit card payments because they think credit card fees may decrease revenues, not taking them may actually mean bigger losses. That’s because it’s easy for customers to switch to competitors who do make payments simple and convenient.
