The technological world is one that is constantly evolving and producing new and exciting products very often designed to make our lives easier. Once your small business has gotten off the ground, you’ll begin to look for ways to streamline things so that they run more smoothly. This is where technology can really step in and save the day, it’s just about finding those things that suit your small business and will only help it be a success. Introducing SnapScan, the relatively new mobile payment app that is revolutionising small businesses, once swipe at a time. Here’s why you should consider bringing SnapScan into your business family, but before that, here’s a brief summary of how it works.

Anyone with a smart phone simply needs to download the app which can then be used whenever the special SnapCode is displayed by a merchant. Scan the SnapCode with your phone and then confirm the transaction using your unique PIN. The credit card you have linked to the app will automatically be debited and the business will receive the funds immediately. It’s really that easy. So why should you choose SnapScan as a small business owner?

It’s safe

SnapScan uses a patented security model that means that all transactions and information exchanges are safe and secure. This will ensure that your clients feel comfortable enough to make a purchase because it’s one thing to offer a simple payment mechanism, but another to offer one that is also secure.

Sign up is quick, it’s affordable and easy to manage

Signing up for SnapScan for your business takes less than five minutes and there are no set-up fees.  In just a few minutes you can be ready to go and get trading. There are also no monthly rental fees and no minimum transactions customers need to make – everyone’s a winner. You don’t even need to have a bank account to use SnapScan as a merchant. It also eliminates having to have a till or pay point and this will save you money. Lastly, you’ll receive an SMS any time a transaction is successful, so managing your sales is a breeze.

Your customers will thank you

The easier and more convenient things are, the more likely people are to try them. SnapScan doesn’t get much more convenient: gone are the days of having to carry cash and credit cards around. A simple swipe and entering in of a PIN number is all it takes for people to make a payment. It’s efficient and easy, and your clients will love you for it.

Funds are settled daily

You are able to cash up at the end of each day instead of having to wait until the end of the month. You’ll receive a PIN which you can use to make the withdrawal from one of SnapScan’s banking partner’s ATMs or a participating Spar store.

It’s portable

If your small business is one on the go, then SnapScan will make your life that much easier. Simply set it up wherever you are and then wait for your customers to scan, scan and scan. It’s one less thing to have to worry about when running your own business.

SnapScan would be a welcome addition to any small business and the chances are that once you try it, you’ll find it difficult to use anything else. Just as SnapScan can help you to run your small business more smoothly and easily, so too can Sage One help you with all your online accounting and payroll matters.
