Zero Cost™ EFTPOS unlocks $7k savings for Mister Minit franchise

Saving $7K p.a. is just one reason for switching to Smartpay’s Zero Cost™ EFTPOS.

What sealed the deal for Terry was the amazing customer service. 

As an owner of two Mister Minit franchises in Woy Woy and Bateau Bay, he says it’s the service that sets any business apart.

“Paying attention to your customer is everything, and I feel like that’s what I get every time I call Smartpay.” Terry says.

"I speak to someone who understands payments and is quick and efficient."

“They get it, and that’s not something I ever said about my bank.”

Covid changes the way people pay

For Terry, Covid was the big driver behind exploring different EFTPOS solutions.

“I noticed a big increase in card payments and, for the first time, realised how much I was paying in fees. It was huge!”

That was when another Mister Minit franchise owner recommended Smartpay’s Zero Cost™  EFTPOS.

A better way to manage EFTPOS payments

Unlike traditional EFTPOS solutions, there is no transaction fee with Zero Cost™ EFTPOS. The cost is passed on to the customer as a small surcharge, automatically calculated before they pay.

“I was reluctant to surcharge at first. Then I realised how often I pay surcharges at cafes, news agencies, everywhere! And I always go back.”

“I figured my customer would feel the same, and that is how it turned out.”

"Switching was easy, and the Smartpay's payment specialist I dealt with was simply excellent."

“He asked me all the right questions and took care of everything. He made the whole switch process simple,” says Terry.

Switching makes challenging times easier

Terry emphasises how easy the set up process was. He said, “Getting set up was straightforward. The terminal arrived already programmed and it was just plug-in and play. No mucking around.”

“Everything works, and when I do my books at the end, everything reconciles because no one is skimming off the top. So I’m saving time there too.” Terry says.

“I estimate I save about $300 a month in each store. That is $7,000 p.a., which goes a long way in paying other bills during these challenging times.”

“I have recommended Smartpay to other franchise owners and businesses and will continue to do so. Smartpay’s Zero-Cost is a great product.”
