Accept Card Payments with WorldPay Zinc
Customers ‘more likely’ to use decorators who accept card payments.
New findings from a survey supporting the launch of WorldPay Zinc, a new pay as you go mobile payment service that enables small businesses to accept card payments, reveal many self-employed tradespeople may be losing potential income by not being able to accept card payments. More positively, there is competitive advantage to be gained as the survey shows that businesses adopting new card payment technology often attract more customers than those only accepting cash.
The implications are far reaching as 72% of consumers are left with a negative impression of a business that fails to accept cards; customers may also see this lack of service as poor customer service (28%), being unprofessional (19%) and even perceiving the business as unsuccessful or struggling (18%).
The new WorldPay Zinc service is , say the company, quick and easy to set-up. Businesses and sole traders can simply apply online at www.worldpayzinc.com or download the WorldPay Zinc app on their smartphone or tablet and apply through the app. All they need then is the Chip & PIN keypad which they can order online when they apply or alternatively buy for £59.99 in-store at John Lewis. It takes less than five minutes to apply for a WorldPay account and users can be up and running, receiving secure payments and reviewing full payment details on the move usually the very next business day.
There is no long-term contract commitment or monthly subscription fees, you simply pay as you go, meaning that businesses can use the service as much or as little as they like. The service also offers quick settlement (with money transferred into the business’ bank account usually within 4 business days) and customers have the support of a 24/7 UK based helpline.
