Your supermarket depends on the people that live in your local community, and just as importantly, they depend on you. Your success and growth come down to the quality of service you provide and the value your customers get for their hard-earned dollars, and both of those factors are impacted by payment processing.
BAMS is the ultimate payment processing partner for small businesses like yours because we enable you to give your customers the payment options they want, help you streamline their payment experience, and help you pad your bottom line in the process. Here are just a few of the benefits partnering with BAMS can provide to your supermarket.
BAMS Can Help Increase Your Sales
Studies have shown that people paying with credit cards are willing to spend more money than when paying with cash. The reason is that a tap or swipe of the credit card is perceived as far less painful than handing over cold, hard cash. That means people paying with cards are both more likely to spend more money as a whole and are also more likely to indulge in near-the-checkout impulse purchases.
That has huge implications for your supermarket, the most obvious being that if you aren’t already accepting credit cards, you’re leaving money on the table. Aside from this well-researched consumer behavior, accepting credit cards just makes sense, since fewer and fewer people are carrying cash at all as consumer payment habits move further towards plastic with each passing year.
BAMS Can Help Reduce Your Fees
If you are currently accepting credit card payments, there’s a good chance you’re either using a third-party provider like Square or that you just signed on with your bank because you thought they’d be the best rate available. In both of those cases, the odds are that the fees you’re paying on each transaction are higher than they need to be.
At BAMS, we’ve developed an industry-leading five-step price comparison designed specifically to determine how and where we can save you money before providing you with a detailed quote. That way, you can be absolutely certain that partnering with BAMS is the right move not only for your peace of mind but for your wallet as well.
BAMS Can Help Streamline Your Tracking and Reporting
BAMS does more than just process payments; it also provides a full suite of tools to help you better manage your business, including detailed tracking and reporting on all of your transaction handlings. BAMS also comes with access to IRIS CRM, a leading customer resource management tool that can help you streamline almost all aspects of your business.
These tools allow you to minimize monotonous and time-consuming housekeeping tasks so that you can focus more on growing your business and serving the customers and community that depend on your grocery store and drive your sales.
At BAMS, our goal is to enable you to offer your customers the credit card and debit payment options they expect while cutting your costs and making card payments more profitable for you. We’d love the opportunity to show you how BAMS can benefit your supermarket the same way it’s benefited thousands of businesses all over the world, so give us a call today to find out more.
