With the rising cost of gasoline, many owners of convenience stores and gas stations are finding it increasingly difficult to make a profit. Although gas was never the major source of revenue for businesses in this industry, the rising prices are actually causing some gas stations to lose money as they lower their prices in an effort to remain competitive. In addition, the fees associated with credit card payments are only further digging into the profit margin. So, what is an owner of a convenience store supposed to do?
Although it may seem like a good idea to stop allowing customers to pay for their gasoline with a credit card, the reality is that too many customers are accustomed to the convenience of paying “at the pump.” This means that you will likely lose business if you start requiring your customers to come inside and pay with cash. Losing customers means losing profits, which is something that you don’t want to do. Therefore, in order to keep your customers happy, you need to continue to offer your customers the option of paying with a credit card while reducing the costs you have to pay for this service. For many gas station owners, the idea of having the best of these two worlds seems like an impossibility. With our help, however, it can be possible.
As a owner of a convenience store, you offer a unique service to the public. In addition, the nature of your business is quite different from many other businesses. Unlike a lawyer that may only need to process a few large payments a week, you need to process hundreds of purchases each day. In addition, many of your purchases will be quite small. After all, it is not unusual for a customer to pay for his or her morning cup of coffee and donut with a credit card. With a high volume of small purchases, it is easy to see your profit disappear quickly. Therefore, you need to work with a credit card processor that will base your fees appropriately and according to the type of business you run.
In order to increase your profits, you need to find a credit card processor service that will not charge you such extravagant fees. This means working with a company that understands your unique business needs and services. This way, your customer purchases will be classified properly and you can pay as little toward credit card fees as possible.
