Sporting Goods Stores can now utilize the added benefits from mega giant Merchant Data Systems. MDS has teamed up with Karma Snack to offer targeted industries the help they need and the credit card processing they are looking for.
Because of the cashless society that we live in, credit card processing is necessary. When shopping for sporting goods, customers look for the logo that says electronic payments are accepted. Nearly every sporting store in the world has credit card terminals located at the checkout counter. These services that are provided to the customer make the checkout services easier and the customer does not have to carry cash to shop at the store.
MDS has many services that it can offer to its valued merchants. While credit card processing is important, it is just the tip of the iceberg to what they can offer. Sometimes in the business world it can be feast or famine. When times are really good, most merchants do not stop to consider the downtimes that they could soon face. Rather than scrimping and possibly not having the money for payroll, Merchant Data Systems can offer merchant cash advances. Like a traditional cash advance, MDS will loan the business the money they need to get through the rough patches. Unlike traditional cash advances, these loans are based on the amount of credit card activity from past months. These loans can be conveniently repaid, at a selected time, with merchant funds.
Merchant processing, along with credit card machines, allow a sporting goods store to be able to accept credit cards. However; the merchant services that MDS offers its customers goes above and beyond that of other card processing companies. For example most companies are looking for payroll solutions. Payroll is one of the most intriguing parts of running a business. Dealing with the local and federal tax authorities can be a daunting task. MDS has teamed up with two of the largest payroll companies in the country to help their merchant with payroll solutions. Payroll is something that most business has tried to handle at least once, but often realize it is better off being outsourced. MDS will take care of taxes and difficult deductions and the business owner can run their business and focus on their customers.
Ever heard of a mobile payment? Using a mobile payment application, it allows a person to pay for their purchases via a cellular phone. While this radical form of payment is on the forefront of technology, experts say that a majority of business will need to offer these services. People love the convenience of paying for their bills without having to write a check or use a credit card. The phone is scanned and lined up with the credit card reader and the funds are deducted. These transactions are secure and above all convenient. Merchant Data Systems gives their merchant the equipment they need to set up for mobile payments. Offering customer the latest technologically advances equipment ensures repeat business.
Sporting goods stores can make a great amount of additional revenues by having a website. These websites can sell more than the retail locations at times. It is said that by 2014, most shopping will be done online and retail locations will dwindle. With the need for a strong online presence, a company must make sure they have invoicing solutions and a proper shopping cart set up. A good e-commerce system is essential for the success of an online company. MDS takes extra steps to ensure that a company’s transactions are safe and secure. There should be no worries with putting credit cards online with MDS monitoring and ensuring the customer’s safety.
A great deal of business owners are leery of accepting checks due to the number of returned checks they receive. While it is not a preferred method of payment, MDS offers those merchants, who choose, the opportunity to accept electronic checks. Simply slide the check through the reader and the funds are electronically debited from the customer’s account and deposited into the merchant’s account. The security in this method is the check is verified for accuracy and the account is checked to ensure there are funds available. Once the dialing systems have verified all funds an approval code is given. The check can be shredded or returned to the customer. Check processing is done electronically and there is never a need to handle running to the bank to deposit checks.
From POS integration to invoicing solutions, having a merchant account with MDS is a great way for business to be ahead in today’s challenging business world. MDS wants to help the merchant succeed, that is why they offer financing and rental for all equipment from credit card terminals to registers.
