In this week’s update, we touch upon the emergence of multi-channel payment options available to your business.
Is Your Business Multi-Payment Ready?
Your customers now expect multiple ways to make a payment for your goods and services than ever before. For those businesses that are not flexible in the payments they accept, you could be losing out on vital sales as more people carry less cash. The need for quick and easy transactions is at the forefront of what customers are looking for as their time is more precious juggling work and home life commitments.
What Does Multi-Payment Mean?
The phrase Multi-Payment generally means just that, having a variety of different payment options available to your customers. These generally include payment options such as debit and credit cards, both domestic and international, bank transfers of all forms, gift cards, e-wallets, direct debits, store cards and point cards.
Multi-Channel Solutions For Your Business
Whereas your customers want different payment options, what about the different channels that your business needs to provide acceptance of these options?
Multi-Channel is the general term used for how a transaction takes place, for example, in-store purchasing and internet and e-commerce transactions. Mail and telephone order, interactive television purchases, m-commerce and SMS ordering are also all regarded as different channels of payment that are available to the customer of today.
