Don’t Miss An Opportunity Because You’re Looking For A Four-Leaf Clover

“May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light. May good luck pursue you each day and night”.

You won’t need the luck of the Irish to keep your pot of gold full this St Patrick’s Day. Here are some great ways to make it easier for your customers to pay and help keep your business in the green.

Accept Everything

Obviously, it would be difficult to operate an all cash business in 2018. While there are still a few pop up shops here and there, you won’t run into very many of those operations. The first thing we have to offer customers is the option to pay however they want. We need to be ready to accept cash, all credit cards, Paypal, Apple pay, Samsung pay and every other method that people are using these days. Explore your current system. Can you accept all the current methods of payment? What about the ones that are coming down the line?


If you are looking to expand, particularly online sales, you’ll need to be sure that you accept multiple currencies. If you have a payment processor, they can often handle that aspect for you. If not, you’ll need to do a bit of research with your bank or whoever manages those conversions on your part. Make sure your business isn’t left behind. Every pot o’ gold is actually made up of a diverse portfolio of currencies.

Perfect Processor

The best way to be sure that you are opening every possible door for customers is to find a top notch payment processing system. eWay and SecurePay are two of several great options out there. Take a look at a few of the different systems that can process online payments. Who can offer the most options for the best rates? Consider what they could offer besides online payments. Some of the major companies can also replace your on-site machines and improve those rates as well. It never hurts to do a bit of competitive shopping in the processor market.

Do a bit of research into what you offer and how much there is to offer. If you have everything covered, congratulations. Chances are, we can help you improve a few things.

But remember “Never iron a four-leaf clover because you don’t want to press your luck”.
