Use iPad Charge Card Apps to Sell Your Bath and Body Line
You’ve tinkered with creating your own bath and body products for years. Now, you have a great theme for putting together a line to sell at craft shows. One of the biggest issues will be managing payments, as more and more people prefer to pay with credit cards. Setting up for credit card processing will allow you to make more sales. Credit card equipment, though, can be costly. Your iPad provides another option, though, and iPad charge card apps are a perfect approach to making your payment system more consumer friendly.
iPad charge card apps are available through the iTunes app store, and there are free options, including ROAMPay. Downloading an app won’t have you up and running, though. You will first need to obtain a merchant account with one of the authorized services. PaymentMax is an example, providing quick account approvals with no setup fees. Once approved, you will be able to order a credit card reader at a discounted price. You will also obtain the necessary authorization code for your app.
When you make a sale, your customer will manually enter credit card information or swipe to initiate the transaction. Additional details can be manually entered on the iPad screen, including destination of electronic receipt, tips and notations related to the purchase. The payment will be securely processed in compliance with PCI standards. Your funds will end up in your checking account, transferred within a day of the transaction. The beginning of your bath and body business is within reach as you create your account and incorporate your iPad into your business plan.
