Credit card processing apps definitely a powerful tool for merchants. Instead of investing your money on expensive POS system, Salequick (Credit card processing app) works on smartphone and tablets facilitates you a low cost hardware and affordable software fee. Credit card processing apps are also called as point of sale/POS Apps and also mPOS(mobile point of sale) apps. The ability to work on smartphone or tablet is just one aspect of equation. Credit card processing apps also offer small lightweight mobile card readers rather than full on credit card terminals that require a dedicated internet connection.
But where do you start to look? What features and specification do you need? Let’s start with the four very important aspects to consider when choosing a credit card processing app.
Four major key features to look into a credit card processing app:
1. Need of your business: All credit card apps are not created with equal features and functionality. You should choose for what you and your business needs. What features are must have in your chosen app in terms of inventory and reporting. What operating system you required in your POS App. Would having a virtual terminal as a backup be helpful? Are you comfortable with paying a monthly software fee or would you rather have a pay-as-you-go option?
2. Standalone POS or integrated platform: First decide do you need credit card app to take payment in person or do you plan to sell online, do custom orders and maybe sell on social media. A standalone POS App is good enough, if you plan to sell in person. But if you plan to run your business through multiple sales channel, integrated app makes all much easier.
With an integrated platform, you can also manage custom orders, invoice with the same portal. No need to check you mails to see whether the payment has sent. An all in one approach makes it much easier to manage your business. You can also choose integrated platform if you plan to expand your business, because it doesn’t charge for the features, you are not using.
3. Payment Processing Cost: Payment processing cost refers to the actual transaction processing rates as well as any applicable software costs. Some of payment processing apps only charge for transaction cost not for software cost and some charge for software and processing costs. Obviously you’ll save more money by choosing a app that doesn’t charge for software fee. But remember the best value does not always equate to the lowest prices. It always depends on what features you get and the quality of the experience.
4. Cost of Hardware: Software fee can be free of a credit card processing app but still you need to consider hardware fee. So make sure to know what hardware you need. Some providers offer hardware bundles at discounted rates which can be beneficial with your budget. So it is good to decide before shopping that how much you want to spend on hardware.
So these are the key features you should keep in mind while choosing a credit card processing app. If you have more suggestions for features in credit card processing app, you are most welcome in comments.
