Why should your business start accepting card payments?

Card payments in Ireland are more popular than ever before, with contactless especially growing rapidly.  A 2017 study by Bank of Ireland Payment Acceptance found that 43% of consumers have intentionally avoided a shop which didn’t offer card payment or contactless facilities.  By offering card payments, your business can cater to a wider variety of consumers and generate more revenue.

A 2017 Visa report also found that for small businesses specifically, it is significantly cheaper to accept a card payment over a cash payment of the same value, considering processing costs.  Join the thousands of small Irish businesses including restaurants, retailers, cafes, petrol stations, beauticians, taxi drivers, and skilled traders benefiting from taking card payments.

A 2017 report from Visa found that it took three times as long for back office processing of cash transactions versus those for card – costing businesses more in staff fees.  Similarly, risk of fraud are far lower with card transactions, and businesses who deal with more digital currency than cash enjoy lower insurance costs.

As part of An Post, we have a proven track record of supporting Irish businesses in urban and rural areas.  We’re committed to providing reliable, quality service and affordable rates for you and your business, whether it be for card payments or any of our other retailer services.

13 reasons to choose PostPoint as your Card Payment provider

Whether you’re starting out in business or looking to switch provider, PostPoint can help you take secure credit and debit card payments in person or over the phone.

Click here to request a free quote today, or call us on 1890 20 42 20.

Below we’ve listed 13 reasons to choose PostPoint as your Card Payment Provider.

 

1. Part of the An Post Group

Because PostPoint is part of An Post, you can trust that your payments will be processed safely, securely, and effectively. An Post has been named the most reputable organisation in Ireland, according to the annual Ireland RepTrak® 2017 study.

2. Quick and easy set up

If you decide to choose PostPoint as your Card Payment provider a qualified An Post Engineer will visit your site to install your terminal. Additional pin pad and terminal stand available upon request.

3. Excellent customer support

Our award winning Sales Team and Engineers are available and on call nationwide should you require any assistance on site. Our dedicated Retail Support Desk and Technical Support Desk are also available to you should you have any queries.

4. Fast replacement terminal

Our iCT250 Card Payment Terminal is one of the most reliable and robust systems in the market. However, where a system does become damaged they will be repaired or replaced by An Post’s 16 nationwide engineers the next working day after the fault is reported.

5. Shorter term contracts available

PostPoint offer a range of different card payment bundles and contract lengths. While some providers may tie you in to contracts lasting up to 3 years, we offer 6 and 12 month contracts.

6. Reduce your card payment fees

In switching to PostPoint, some of our retailers have saved up to 30% on their Card Payment charges.

7. No additional charge for cashback

Unlike some providers, we do not apply any additional charge for cashback. For some businesses cashback charges can add up to be an expensive hidden cost and they are worth bearing in mind when choosing a Card Payment Provider.

8. Android Pay and Apple Pay available

Our terminal accepts both Android Pay and Apple Pay. So, customers can easily pay with a touch of their phone.

9. Contactless payments available

Customers can touch their payment card on your PostPoint terminal and quickly pay for items that cost €30 or less.

10. Take payments over the phone

Our card machines have the function for ‘Card holder not present’. So, if you wish you can complete transactions over the phone.

11. Additional services available

One of the great things about choosing PostPoint for your Card Payments, is that you can also offer your customers additional footfall driving services through our terminal, including Mobile Phone Top Up, Stamps, The National Lottery, One4all Gift Cards and Bill Payments.

12. Clear transparent pricing structure

Our pricing is completely clear and transparent. We detail exactly what you pay on each transaction, including interchange charges and scheme fees. Monthly statements also clearly break down these charges for you by transaction type. So, you will be fully informed of the exact rates you are paying.

13. No exit fees

If you decide to leave after your contract expires we won’t charge you any exit fees.
