The Options
Aside from just accepting cash as payment from your customers, your customer could be paying with credit and debit cards, gift cards, checks, food stamps, and with payment plans such as 90 days same as cash. These can work to the benefit or as a liability to your company. With all the new developments you could be accepting many different types of payments to maximum your profit potential.

Sorry, we only take cash
After your customer comes in to get an item or service, the last thing you want to tell them is to go to the bank or go someplace else because we do not accept your type of payment here.Retail stores have unique needs that are typically not just "run of the mill." When considering your payment options, you need to consider what your customer is going to feel like when paying for your products. Each store has different products, values, product lines, and other essential customizations.

No matter what type of store you operate, you probably have realized the need to accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and other types of cards for payment from your customers. Customers these days do not carry much cash on them, and when you do not accept cards, they can only choose between your $1 items and $20 items.. depending on how much they have on them at the time. You still may make a sale, but your customer could be passing up your most profitable items, just because you don't accept credit cards.
