Why Your Catering Company Should Use Online Merchant Services

Running a catering business is a stressful, but fulfilling, job. There are so many different types of catering businesses today that there is no roadmap on how to build a successful one that operates in your market, or that handles the type of customers and cooks and the type of cuisine that you do. The best thing that you can do is to make sure that you are implementing the best practices for caterers that are similar to you, but that you are tailoring those best practices for your business.

These best practices will help in a few key ways. For example, you can implement best practices to improve the experience that you are able to provide your customers, save yourself time and money, or by making it easier and more enjoyable for your employees to do their jobs.

One of the ways that you can dramatically streamline your business is by using better merchant account services, like the ones that we offer at Leaders Merchant Services. Our California merchant services offer a few key benefits over the services offered by many of our competitors.

Better Merchant Processing From Anywhere
One of the first things that we offer to our customers is the ability to take credit card payments from anywhere that they are. This means that you can get merchant services equipment to take credit card payments from your customers right at their venue, or while you are finishing up a planning meeting.

Easier Online Credit Card Processing
Another thing that we make it easy to do is take credit cards online. This allows you to invoice your customers through a custom portal, and track their payment easily as well. If you are regularly doing business with customers over the phone, or you want to give your customers the greatest amount of flexibility possible, then being able to accept credit cards online is a must.

Using a Phone Credit Card Reader
One of the major hang-ups that you might have about taking credit card payments from customers while you’re away from your office is that it can be cumbersome to keep all of the equipment with you to do this. Instead of carrying around a bulky credit card reader, we can help you set up an Android or iPhone credit card reader, allowing you to take payments via your phone. This lets you process payments with the same equipment that you most likely carry with you anyway.

These are just a few of the reasons that more catering companies are using our service than ever before. If you would like to learn more about how we can help your business succeed, then get in touch with us today.
