Craft Show Payment Processing

Being a vendor at a craft show takes a lot of time and preparation.

You have to invest in your products along with the overhead to create them. Not to mention all of the branding aesthetics required at a craft show like a table, banner, sign, etc.

Your goal at craft shows is to be as profitable as possible despite these overhead costs, but what happens when an interested buyer asks, "do you take credit cards?"

If your answer is no, or your current credit card processing is too slow, you may be missing out on sales!

You can't rely on payment apps, either. As popular as some of them are, you cannot expect a customer to download the app, create an account, link their card, and then pay you in a matter of minutes.

This is why you need an updated and efficient mobile payment processing solution for your craft shows. Accepting debit and credit card payments is a must.

Thankfully, Electronic Merchant Systems (EMS) is dedicated to help craft show vendors like yourself grow and succeed.

For over 30 years, Electronic Merchant Systems' ultimate goal has been to help local businesses like yours realize their full potential.

Craft Show Vendor Mobile Payment Acceptance

Whether you sell handmade jewelry, sweet treats, wreaths, or any other fun craft - payments from customers need to be quick and seamless.

People are browsing and moving from booth to booth and don't want to get caught up with a cumbersome payment process.

The longer your line is, the more likely a potential customer will move on to the next craft table.

How many customers do you lose per craft show because they see a long line and feel deterred? The customer experience is integral.

That is why we are proud to offer EMSmobile to all craft show vendors.

With EMSmobile, you can easily transform your smartphone or tablet into a portable payment processing terminal.

Talk about convenience!

And let's be honest, most people do not carry cash anymore.

That is why being able to accept payments from your customer's debit and credit cards in a quick and efficient fashion is so valuable.

You're allowing your customers to pay the way they want to.

EMSmobile provides your customers a full suite of payment methods, such as swiping their card, entering their EMV chip, or contactless payment options, like Apple Pay and Google Pay.

Other features include:

  • Creating itemized or simple transactions
  • Manage cash payments
  • Tracking and controlling all of your inventory
  • Allowing multiple users at the same time

Gift Cards for Craft Fair Vendors

Selling doesn't have to be limited to craft show attendees. Turn your one-time buyer at a show into a loyal customer with gift cards.

First of all, everyone loves gift cards! They feel like they are getting more for their money!

For Craft Show Vendors, gift cards offer:

  • Brand awareness
  • Greater customer loyalty
  • Increased profit and cash flow
  • A higher volume of purchases

It is proven that adding gift cards to your business allows you to connect with existing customers, attract new ones, and keep them both coming back for more.

In 2019, almost $3 billion in gift card cash was never used. Really think about it - every purchased gift card that is never redeemed is 100% profit for your crafting business.

Your gift cards will look amazing, too! Our in-house creative team will help design gift cards customized to your crafting business's style and aesthetic.
