Upgrading your payment processing system is not a decision that you want to make without a serious amount of thought, but with the right support, that process can be easier on you and your team.

Leaders Merchant Services is your key to this process. We can help you decide whether to upgrade the systems that you are using right now, how you should upgrade them, and what to upgrade them to. There are a lot of different point of sale solutions out there, but some of the most popular ones today use an iPad credit card reader. There are a number of reasons for this, but here are a few of our favorites:

Inter-store mobility, if you want it

If you’ve been to an Apple store in the past decade, then you’ll see just one of the benefits of using an iOS device to take credit card payments: elimination of the stationary checkout process. Instead of standing in one place, you can bring your point of sale solution around your store in the palm of your hand. This will allow you to pull up helpful information about products, check inventory, and even allow your customer to pay, no matter where you are in your store.

Store Customer Information and Sales Data

Using an iPad credit card reader also allows you to store important customer information and sales data in the palm of your hand. No matter what type of business you run, having this data available to you in an easy to digest format will allow you to keep better track of your customer’s spending and make sure that you have all of the necessary information close at hand when your customer comes into the store.

You can also use this information in a variety of other ways in your business, like to send out promotional emails and to follow-up with customers who may be interested in a new product that you have in stock.

Improved Integration with QuickBooks

An important reason to upgrade to an iPad credit card reader has nothing to do with the reader itself, but rather with how the software integrates with other software applications that you use. Many point of sale solutions on the iPad will allow you to process credit card transactions, and then send those transactions directly into QuickBooks, dramatically streamlining your bookkeeping.
