In a recent article over at Daily Finance, Dan Caplinger discussed why credit cards are still worth using.
From things like better reward points, to better overall fraud protection, consumers should consider using their credit cards whenever possible. You can read the article in its entirety here.
With the recent economic troubles consumers have been facing because of a rough economy, it might be hard to believe that consumers should use their credit cards to make purchases.
Credit cards though, offer consumers better cash back rewards, and if you have the money to successfully pay them off, using a credit card over a debit card will yield better overall results for a consumer.
So what does this mean for a merchant who just started a small business? Credit cards are an invaluable part of business, and will not only give your consumers more options when it comes to payment, but being able to process credit cards will give you added security.
Credit cards are more secure than other means of payment, and with the benefits that come with using one, credit cards aren’t going away anytime soon. Small business who still aren’t accepting credit cards then, are missing out on a revenue that isn’t going away.
If you’re a small business and still undecided about signing up for a merchant services account, now is the time to act. Don’t miss out on the secure, quick, and consumer friendly abilities being able to process a credit card offers.
