Smartpay Zero Cost™ EFTPOS Saves Tyre Company $7K

Tyrepower Franchise in Gunnedah and Tamworth
When Tyrepower in Gunnedah and Tamworth introduced a surcharge for card payments, owner Marietjie admits she was nervous.
“I wasn’t sure how my customers would respond, but nearly all are ok with it,” she says.

Just like customers are happy to pay for their choice of tyres, they’re also fine with a small surcharge when paying by card, she says.

“My customers understand that the surcharge helps us cover the cost of accepting these card payments. They pay a surcharge with their electricity bills, water bills and telephone bills, so it’s not something new to them.”
"We are saving about $6,000 - $7,000 per annum across two sites. It’s certainly made a difference to our cash flow."

Surcharge gets profits back on track

“I simply could not continue to absorb the bank’s card transaction fees anymore.”

Marietjie started exploring her options and quickly discovered Smartpay Zero Cost™ EFTPOS.
