Small Business Tips: How to Accept Credit Card Payments Remotely
For small business owners just starting out, maintaining an office or storefront is not always feasible to begin with. However, just because you don’t have a brick-and-mortar facility for your business operations, doesn’t mean you have to limit the types of payment you can accept. At BluePay, we make it easy to accept credit card payments remotely, so you can streamline your payment process and improve business wherever you are. Below, find remote payment solutions that meet any merchant’s needs.
If You Work From Home
The power of the Internet and today’s rapidly evolving technology makes working from home a simple, cost-effective and efficient way to run your business. A virtual credit card terminal is an ideal solution for work-from-home merchants who need a fast, easy and secure way to process transactions from any computer with an Internet connection. Manually entering credit card sales from your home computer can speed up the authorization process, especially when combined with batch processing capabilities – allowing you to upload the entire day’s transaction in a single file. This also helps eliminate double data entry for more accurate reporting.
If Your Business Takes You Everywhere
Whether you are promoting your services at trade shows nationwide, or you do your business primarily at local farmers markets, craft fairs, festivals or even customers’ homes, BluePay’s mobile processing capabilities make it possible to accept credit cards anywhere. As long as you have a cell phone, you can sign up for a mobile merchant account and have the ability to accept credit cards, check your account and send receipts from the palm of your hand. There is no need for additional hardware, heavy maintenance or even a new cell phone, making mobile processing an affordable solution for small business merchants’ on-the-go.
If Your Employees Travel
If you’re sending out your sales team, delivery workers, drivers or service personnel on a daily basis, wireless credit card terminals allow them to accept credit cards wherever they are. A wireless terminal works the same as a traditional stationary system, but its compact size makes it easy to swipe customers’ credit cards right at their doorstep. Wireless terminals from BluePay include Exadigm, Hypercom, Nurit and Verifone.
No matter where you are accepting credit cards for your small business, PCI compliance is required and remains crucial to protecting your business and your customers. BluePay’s wide range of payment processing products complies with PCI DSS standards. Count on BluePay as your single source for secure payment technology.
