As a business owner, collecting payments is the most important aspect of your business.
Why? Because the more payment options you have, the more money your business can make. Usually, customers pay with their cards if they don’t bring enough cash to buy everything they need.
However, if they don’t have any cash or didn’t bring along their card, you could always receive a transfer from them rather than lose the chance to make money. This is why it is important to have multiple options, that allow you to accept cash, card or transfer etc
This makes business owners sceptical about receiving transfers altogether from their customers, no matter who they are. But what if a customer didn’t bring along their card or have any cash on them and genuinely sees transferring money as the most convenient way to pay you? Would you send them away and miss out on getting paid?
Now, this is where most business owners have a problem. If you’ve ever received a fake alert, you’ll understand why. A fake alert happens when a customer sends a fabricated receipt or bank notification stating they’ve sent the money needed to complete a transaction. In reality, you can spend ten years and never receive that money. That’s why we came up with the latest update for our Moniepoint POS terminals. With the new update, you can receive transfers from your customers without worrying about any form of fraud. Let’s show you how:
Make sure your POS terminal is upgraded to the latest version. If you don’t have a POS, learn how to get a Moniepoint POS terminal
Once the update is complete, you’ll now see the option to accept POS transfers is available.
