Use a credit card at a garage sale? Sounds bizarre, doesn’t it? But it probably won’t be for your great-grandchildren.
Javelin Strategy & Research’s new study, as reported in Time, shows debit cards account for 31% of purchases, followed by credit cards at 29% and cash at 27%. Javelin concludes that the volume of cash purchases will decrease by a further 4% over the next five years.
As payment processing becomes simpler, more affordable and more crucial for businesses, cash payments will become an endangered species. Therefore, if your business lacks the ability to process payments, you’re missing out on customers, sales and revenue.
To make accepting payments as simple and affordable as possible, Trinity Merchant Group designs custom plans for each of its clients. To begin, Trinity Merchant Group representatives analyze your current processing methods and business needs.
What if you own a towing company and need to accept payments out of your truck? Trinity Merchant Group can equip you with a wireless terminal that allows you to swipe credit cards on the go.
What if you own an online store and only need the ability to accept secure payments over the Internet? Trinity Merchant Group can design a complete online plan for you from website hosting to creating shopping carts.
So would you use a credit card at a garage sale?
Whether or not you would doesn’t really matter -- what matters is that soon payment processing will extend to the point that you’ll have the option.
