If you run a bicycle shop, you need a versatile and light-weight POS that is as efficient as the man-powered vehicles that you sell. You are going to need to keep track of your inventory, including dozens of parts if you deal in repairs; you're going to need to keep track of sales; and you're going to want to stay ahead of the curve and get a birds-eye-view of all of the processes of your business as well. One way to handle all of these complex details and have all of the analytics that you need right at your fingertips is to employ a simple, high-performance POS like the all-in-one POS system. This is one of the most advanced point of sale systems that you can get for the money, and it is fast, efficient, and high-end both in the realm of software and in the realm of hardware. Let's take a closer look at the different ways that this set-up can benefit your bicycle shop:
Cash and Cashless
Need something completely integrated and easy-to-use that can handle all sorts of transactions? The all-in-one POS system can deal in cash, as well as debit cards, credit cards, and even checks—and it can do it all in one integrated system. Even if you are a relatively small operation still, there's no need to disappoint your customers by not being able to handle the kind of transaction they need when you can simply use a POS such as the all-in-one POS system .
Analytics and Reporting
One of the best things about any our POS systems, but especially the all-in-one POS system is how it simplifies and organizes all of the intricate data of your business into very easy-to-read reports. You can access these reports from anywhere, since they are stored locally on your resident machine, as well as on the cloud. Work remotely and keep a handle on the processes of your business even when there is physical distance between you and your employees, and you'll be able to catch and analyze any potential issues before they become problems. You can also keep an eye on sales trends and other data that might help you to make your bike shop more efficient.
Having these sorts of features can save you a fortune on bookkeeping; whenever you need a certain set of data, it's as easy as simply printing it out from the database. Don't worry if your Internet is down, either; thanks to the all-in-one POS system large storage capabilities, you have plenty of room for local files and they will be easily accessible even in the event of an Internet outage.
You can customize the software's interface and other features to suit the needs of your particular business. This is a huge advantage, especially when you are running a specialty shop like a bike store. Rather than go with a one-size-fits-all POS, you can build your point of sale system around you and your employees, and this will save you a lot of time.
Time Keeping your employees clock-ins organized is a task in and of itself, and the all-in-one POS system this beautifully. It's important to keep an accurate—and ideally digital—record of when your employees work in order to keep your payroll costs from being unnecessarily exorbitant. In addition, the system keeps the cost of record-keeping itself rather low.
The all-in-one POS system has top-of-the-line hardware for a POS, especially for the cost, which makes it a great value. Don't sit there waiting for your system to respond to all of your frustrated button-mashing; get an all-in-one POS system and you'll have some speedy hardware and ultra-responsive software. Your customers will appreciate the quick checkout process, just as you'll appreciate the efficiency. Another nice thing about the all-in-one POS system's form factor is that it is essentially an all-in-one machine, so it takes up very little space. You don't have to make room for a clunky desktop tower or any of those other archaic pieces of hardware, so you can save quite a lot of counter space. It has a very sleek look that would fit in great at any modern, urban bicycle shop.
One of the great features of the all-in-one POS system is its intuitive touch interface. If you know how to use a tablet computer, then chances are you'll have no problem working with this POS. As mentioned before, this interface is customizable, so no matter what kind of business you have or what stage of growth you're in, you can make this POS match your needs perfectly. In addition, as you business grows larger, you can change the interface to suit your needs, so you won't have to worry dealing with a POS that no longer accommodates you.
You are too busy trying to get people back on the road (or sidewalk, or bike lane, or nature trail) to deal with technical difficulties when it comes to your POS, so the last thing you want to do is to have to tinker with your system when there's a problem. Though the all-in-one POS system is quite robust, chaos exists in the universe, and there are always going to be the occasional hiccups; it's just unrealistic to not expect this to some extent. During those kinds of moments, you don't want a company that's going to leave you to your own doom. You have stuff to do, and you need to get going again immediately, so North American Bancard offers 24/7 support for their all-in-one POS system, as well as for their other systems.
While getting set up and keeping things running is usually intuitive enough to not require any intervention on their part, it's nice to know that they're there if you ever need them.
You opened your bike shop to help get your customers moving; a all-in-one POS system will help get your business moving faster, more efficiently, and with the kind of reporting and analytics that you need. If you want a POS that has everything—and includes all of the support you will ever want—give the all-in-one POS system a try.
ISO Agent Partnership
Become a payment service provider today and take your business to the next level. If you are a sales-oriented individual with vast experience in the world of payment processing or you are a driven and motivated professional looking for a new challenge, the SMG ISO agent program might be a great fit for you. With the highest paying commission structure in the industry, superior products, and sales support, our program will see to it that you are rewarded for your efforts.
For anyone with a sales background or a passion for the payments industry, SMG is the ideal partnership. There are dozens of reasons to become a sales partner with Shaw Merchant Group, but don’t just take our word for it. Here are some of the top reasons that we were given when we asked our ISO agent participants why they chose us and why they continue to work with our highly lucrative program.
Sales Partner Portal
With our industry leading partner portal, you’ll have access to online enrollment, training sessions, marketing materials, and you’ll always be ahead of the game with the latest news and promotions.
Stay up-to-date on merchant issues and their resolutions via automated emails and text messages that include a detailed ticket number describing what the merchant’s concern was and how it was resolved.
Registered DBA (White Label)
With our program, you’ll be able to market under your own brand, without paying costly fees! Your brand will be seen on the partner portal, marketing communications, merchant statements, and more.
Free Equipment for Your Merchants
Selling businesses on a new processing plan is much easier when you are able to effortlessly jump over the hurdle of the cost of the equipment. With this program, you can offer your clients free equipment that they will need for their processing provider change. This lowers the barrier to switching and creates a higher conversion rate for you.
Lifetime Passive Income
You will recieve 50–70% of residual income based on the pay structure you select. You will share income on every available revenue stream. With SMG, you get a True Interchange Revenue Split. Unlike other ISO agent programs, there is no basis points off the top for BIN sponsorship or for what they call hidden losses. Our sales partners earn more residual income with our 50/50 partner program than you would with our competition who claim to offer a higher percentage because thier interchange cost (buy rate) is higher.
$20K Performance Bonus
We offer a performance-based fast start bonus that is payable for anyone that onboards more than the standard threshold of clients in the first 4 months. This program is designed to reward those experienced sales members that join our team and quickly learn how to sell this product. The bonus can reach up to $20,000, making it one of the most lucrative and competitive in the industry.
Profitability Based Bonuses
We will look at how much profit is generated on the account after they have been processing for one month and you earn 14 times of the total profit. Example: If we retain $100 in residuals in that month, the bonus would be 14 x $100 or $1,400. You would have already been paid $600, so we would pay you an additional $800 on that account. This bonus is capped at a max of $10,000 per merchant per location. With our dual pricing program it is easier than ever to earn huge bonuses with a 14x profitability bonus. This dual pricing model enables you to maximize your bonus at $10,000 on almost every merchant processing over $90k.
Dual Pricing Program
When you are selling merchant services, one of the best assets of any partner program is more rewards and incentive programs that save your client money. The Edge dual pricing program is one of the hottest new commodities in credit card processing, as it is designed to save the client thousands of dollars in credit card processing cost, instead passing on the fee to the consumer in a way that isn’t damaging to their own conversion rate and revenue. We offer this program to our clients and make it easy to understand and present for our sales partners.
With some sales jobs, you don’t even have the option for medical coverage. With the SMG ISO agent program, you’ll have the resources that you need to provide healthcare coverage to you and your family at an affordable rate. We take care of our own, and when you are in our program you will have access to these benefits.
White Label ISO Program
Grow Your Merchant Services ISO with White-Label Payment Solutions
As an independent sales organization (ISO), you can upgrade your business by providing merchant processing services under your own brand. You may dismiss the idea at first, probably thinking that you don’t have the infrastructure or expertise to set up your own payment processing company. However, with white label payment processing, all you really need is a good ISO partner.
How a White Label ISO Program Works
To offer payment processing services under your own brand, your ISO partner will provide you with an online application page that doesn’t identify their company. This “white label” solution is ready for your brand and includes your logo, colors, and contact information, so your merchants only identify the payment solutions with your company. It eliminates any confusion among your merchant customers about who their service provider and primary contact should be. Your brand is the only thing the merchant will see on your website, merchant portal, and marketing materials.
Your payments ISO partner becomes a silent partner, providing technology, payments functionality, and services. This puts you in more control, allowing you to deliver seamless, consistent customer experiences in all interactions – and enhance your brand’s reputation. With this white label payment solution, you won’t need to overcome negative perceptions a prospect may have about the company your working with. This is because you are creating a unique customer experience. Better still, you don't have to fall in line with another company's existing customer experience.
Once you start providing white label payment services, you will also find that you build stronger, longer lasting relationships with your merchants. They'll begin to view you as a payments expert and an expert in the other solutions you provide. You may even find you are able to grow your customer base, as merchants in every vertical or niche can benefit from accepting payments, enabling you to market to more types of businesses.
Remember: white label payment processing enables you to earn huge residual income.
