Hundreds of customers come passing through the doors of cosmetic stores everyday. Some buy items with cash while others buy it with plastic cards. Nowadays, consumers prefer using credit cards because of the flexibility, convenience, and rewards they offer. From the cosmetic store's standpoint, these benefits are yet to be realized. A cosmetic store owner must be able to accept credit cards otherwise he/she stands to lose a significant amount of sales and profit.
