That long line of customers is a retailer’s dream and nightmare rolled into one.

Keeping the line moving means keeping customers happy and the revenues for your small business coming in. An easy way to make the line flow is by connecting your credit card system to your iPad point of sale.

At a basic level, integrating the two eliminates the extra step of ringing up a sale twice and adds speed to the process to get your customers on their way.

Also, with a single swipe of the card, cashiers no longer need to worry about punching in the wrong numbers by ringing up a sale twice. And at the end of the shift, there’s no need to compare and reconcile charges between the iPad register and the credit card machine either.

On the reporting side, you will be able to get breakdowns by tender type and card type right down to the customer level. And putting the two together also allows you to track tips by card type.

Lastly, don’t forget the amount of paper you’ll save! Instead of printing out as many as three receipts from the register and the card machine, with ShopKeep POS you need to print out at most one for the customer, and coming soon, customers will have the option of getting an email instead.

And best of all, there’s no cost to integrate the two.

It’s a simple solution to help you make better business decisions.
