Accepting Credit Cards Can Immediately Increase Sales And Profits*
*We do not provide merchant services. We suggest you start by contacting you bank and doing your own research. I know from many years while we were contractors it paid off handsomely so I am simply passing on a mere "scrap of information" to help you get more cashflow and profit.
Unplanned Emergencies - Are stressful now add "how am I going to pay for this" to the mix and the anxiety increases exponentially! For most people cash in short supply which leaves using a credit card, getting a bank loan or selling something to raise cash as their best options?
For Example - Homeowner with leaking roof is going to get it fixed right away because rain water is damaging the interior of their home including some irreplaceable sentimental treasures including items passed down from parents and grandparents.
Who Will They Call? - You I hope! If you are their contractor and you are actively working and the contractor they like and trust.
Accepting All Credit Cards - Makes you the hero because they get instant financing and your Electronic Armored Car takes your money to the bank.
"Everybody wins, your client gets roof fixed, they earn airline miles and other perks and you made a sale which you could have easily lost to a competitor that accepts credit cards.
Add On Sales - Will more than make up for any fees you pay to accept credit cards. Prove it to yourself by asking twenty contractors that accept credit cards why they do and then ask twenty that don't and make up your own mind. In our past construction businesses when we accepted credit cards the profits increased over 100% and if I told you how much I guarantee you would not believe it!
