To successfully run a healthy business, you’ll need a way for clients to pay for their products and services. These days, people simply don’t carry cash or write checks but expect businesses to take credit or debit cards or Apple pay.
When searching for the ideal payment processor for your salon, there is one crucial thing to keep in mind above and beyond the rates they offer and the costs associated with payment processing. That one thing? Integration!
Having a payment processor that works seamlessly with your POS software is essential. It saves you and your team time by not doubling up on your work. For example, if your payment processing is not integrated, your staff will have to transfer the total from each client’s ticket into the payment processing device by hand. Also, at the end of the day, a team member will need to check the batch totals against the software totals for payment processing and rectify any discrepancies.
By contrast, an integrated payment processor syncs up with the salon’s software. Ticket totals are sent directly to the processing terminal. The client can add a tip if desired and then accept the final amount so the device can initiate the authorization and process the payment. Once complete, that ticket shows as paid in the POS software, and any tips are recorded accordingly. Since everything is integrated, there is no need to reconcile payment amounts before batching out at the end of the day.
So, the big lesson here? Having your payment processing integrated into your POS software is a feature you definitely want. It will save time and make the process of checking out that much easier for both your clients and your team.
