Si Senorita Bar Saves Mucho Dinero Switching To Smartpay Zero Cost™ EFTPOS

Si Senorita Bar
Tacos, burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas, tequila – Si Senorita Bar in Fitzroy likes to keep things traditional, says Bar Manager Cati.
But there is also a time and place for making changes too, she adds, especially when that change can save your business thousands of dollars.

"After switching from the bank’s standard EFTPOS to Smartpay Zero Cost™ EFTPOS, we were saving about $10,000 to $12,000 a year.

“Those savings have only grown with our business. We are now saving about $24,000 per annum”

Smartpay Zero Cost™ EFTPOS means nada fees

“When we opened in 2018, we had our EFTPOS facility with our business bank, but our merchant fees kept going up as we grew. Then came Covid, and that changed the landscape significantly. Everyone started paying by card or mobile wallet, and hardly anyone used cash. Again, that just pushed up those merchant fees,” Cati says.
"That’s when we came across Smartpay and realised their Smartpay Zero Cost™ EFTPOS solution was perfect for us."

With Smartpay Zero Cost™ EFTPOS there are no merchant fees to pay. Instead, customers pay a small surcharge which is automatically calculated.

It’s a small change that most customers don’t mind, but can have a huge impact on your bottom line.

“We have not had any issues from customers. Surcharging is very common now.”

Having an easy POS experience is critical when you’re trying to provide friendly service while pouring tequilas and margaritas on a Friday night.

That’s something Cati doesn’t worry about now with her Smartpay terminals.

“We have five part-time staff who just punch in the amount and the surcharge is calculated automatically. Totally streamlined and easy. Our staff can focus on our customers,” Cati says.

“The terminals work extremely well. Smartpay are really payment specialists.”

Savings help keep a lid on costs

“We are saving around $24,000 per year. We have incurred significant business cost increases in the last 12 months and these savings are helping us to cover these,” Cati explains.

Cati goes on to say, “I have recommended Smartpay Zero Cost™ EFTPOS to other businesses. The savings are significant for hospitality businesses like ours.”
