Have you been thinking of adding online shopping to your store, restaurant or other business? Here are 3 great e-commerce solutions for your business. They are easy to integrate, quick to set up and can be configured to work with your existing POS System.
There are other benefits, too.
Benefits of an Integrated Solution
In addition to integrating one of these (or other) E-commerce solutions with your current retail POS or restaurant Point Of Sale system, adding one of these online platforms to your website can save you money. These can eliminate having the need for a second merchant account and reduce fees by just having one payment processing system.
In addition, your security improves.
You reduce the risk of failing a PCI compliance audit, which as you may know often comes with penalty fees. You also remove an access point to your bank account. Any additional improvements to security are important to consider. Every day businesses are attacked, spammed, or hacked and taking steps now is essential.
