Barber shaves $8,000 p.a. off bank fees

If you want the best shave in the town of Albany, you go to Ron’s Barber Shop.

And, if you’re a small business that wants to shave thousands off your bank fees by getting rid of card transaction fees, you should talk to Smartpay about SmartCharge, says owner Rowena.

“I recommend Smartpay’s SmartCharge every day whenever I’m speaking to other small businesses.

“I think it’s a wonderful concept; it’s the way card payments should be done.”

A growing business creates a growing problem

“For many years I was paying bank fees and, as I was growing, so were card payments.”

“The banks were promoting going cashless; however, they were penalising me by charging me more fees. I think that’s unfair.”

“When I heard about SmartCharge from a family member, I thought what a great product and contacted Smartpay.”

“I’m very happy I made that call.”

A smart way to cut card transaction fees

SmartCharge is a plug-and-go solution for businesses that want to accept cards but not pay card transaction fees.

You don’t pay a fee per transaction with SmartCharge. Instead, the terminal automatically calculates a surcharge and adds this amount to the total for your customer to pay.

“SmartCharge sounded so straightforward I did not have to think about it. We completed the application on the phone.”

Happy business, happy staff, happy customers

“We were literally up and running in no time at all.

We use the terminal just like our previous one. We simply punch in the amount, and everything else is automatic. The team think it’s great.”

Her team might love the simplicity of SmartCharge, but how about her customers?

“ I know many of my customers personally, so notifying them was important.

“I put signs up on the counter and advised them about the surcharge when they were paying.

“My customers truly understand the challenges small businesses face and have been very supportive.”

“99.9% of customers have no issues at all.”

New savings become new employment opportunities

“We are saving about $650 a month or $8000 a year.”

“That has made a big difference to our cash flow, and I now have the funds to bring on an additional apprentice.

“Being able to create employment during these challenging times is something I feel especially good about.”
