Best Payment Processing Solutions for Small Retail Businesses

As a retail business owner, you understand the importance of having an efficient and safe credit card processing system for your sales. Fast, efficient, secure retail credit card processing is the new norm for an optimal user experience, and without that, retailers could be losing customers.

An ideal retail credit card processing solution should seamlessly fit into your retail store, and your merchant account should help the business grow, not hinder it.

Retail Credit Card Processing & Merchant Accounts

Payment processing has evolved as customers shifted to primarily credit card usage, and your users expect speed and security with their purchases. For an easy-to-use system that implements cash and credit card payments, contact Electronic Merchant Systems (EMS) for the best payment processing solution for your retail business.

Benefits of a Streamlined Credit Card Processing System for Retail

Small Business Opportunities

When you implement an easy retail payment processing system with a merchant account through Electronic Merchant Systems, you will supercharge customer satisfaction, make more money per transaction, increase profit, dip or swipe cards with EMV chip-enabled payments, and quickly get your customers checked out and on their way!

How can you increase profits overall?

It's simple: With a streamlined process for payment acceptance, EMS services allow you to increase the number of transactions you can complete in a given time period. When the amount of transactions per hour increase, the customer experience is improved, along with your sales. Plus, the custom rate for your retail credit card processing solutions could be lower than you’re currently paying.

What are benefits to an EMS credit card processing solution?

EMS merchant accounts allow retail businesses to authorize point-of-sale (POS) transactions as efficiently as possible with our advanced technology and software.

That means your retail customers will have more payment flexibility. They can dip their chip, swipe a magnetic strip, wave their card or phone with near field communication (NFC) processing, and more. With more options to choose from, customer satisfaction will increase, along with the potential for repeat business.

The improved customer service offered through faster checkout times and secured payment processing will also help drive increased sales, and accepting this type of payment helps to minimize your liability risk while increasing your customers' confidence levels in your business security.

Whether you are looking for an EMV card reader to jumpstart online sales with a Virtual Terminal, or a physical terminal solution, you have options to choose from at EMS. We offer our retail merchant account holders unparalleled 24/7/365 customer support, a wide range of merchant services and products, and simple integration with your retail store's operations.
