How to Step up your Credit Card Processing Game
The new 2CP’s “TPro iPay was designed to bring electronic payments to service based businesses, like the brick-and-mortar stores have always enjoyed. If you meet clients in the field and want to add a polished and professional procedure to your attaché read on. If you have had to write down client’s credit cards in the field to process later, then this can revolutionize your current habits
“Having a payment taking system with you, when your customers want to pay you, transforms you into a polished professional that shows that you are a reliable business owner. Before this, you had to write down the client’s credit card and process it later when you got back to the office or home (for home based businesses). This act alone makes clients uneasy! They feel like their credit card information isn’t safe. 2CP’s “TPro iPay for the IPhone not only changes that perception, it literally changes the entire process. The Credit card is now swiped in front of the client AND the number is not stored or kept in its original form. The numbers are immediately encrypted and sent through a high level secure channel and processed. Not only are you now a savvy state of the art business owner, you’re a trusted, secure and effective one too, with the emphases on effective! The charges you incur with a credit card swiped with the credit card present incur lower charges to you the business owner, sometimes as much as an entire percentage point. This alone adds up to $$$ hundreds and depending on your volume $$$$ thousands of dollars!! ” says Jeri Wilson Director of Corporate Sales at 2CP USA (a local credit card processing company with headquarters in El Segundo California.
“There are others out there doing the same thing, like PayPal and Square, both have very high charges however. This system from 2CP USA is one that we use here at the Chamber allowing us to keep our costs down and 2CP’s “TPro iPay is just steadier and more professional looking than the square.” Says Lori Tostado Director of Business Development for the Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce.
Lori goes on to say, “We contacted 2 CPUSA and negotiated a special low low rate for our chamber members, many of whom are enjoying hundreds of dollars reduction in their charges. Anything we can do as a chamber to help our local business owners do business more effectively and save them money is why we are here in the first place. We are a partner with our business owners, not a social club that so many chambers have the reputation of being. We consistently look for companies that we can negotiated with to bring real business saving solutions to and allow our members to reap the rewards. This is one that we immediately saw the benefits of. All our members only have to scan their latest statements and email them to JeriW@2CPUSA.com and Jeri does a side by side comparison and emails them that comparison right back. The business owner can see immediately how much they will save and can then decide on their own if that warrants a move to 2CP USA or if they want to stay with their current processor. I have to tell you, the Chamber hit a home run with this one though. Everyone so far has been very pleasantly surprised!”
