Think about the last time you made a purchase.
How did you make your payment?
If you’re like most people, you likely used a credit card. In fact, credit cards are the number one method people use to make payments, whether it be personal or business.
The reasons why vary, but mostly it’s because of the convenience, the ability to easily track expenses and the loyalty rewards.
No matter the type of business you have, chances are your clients want to pay by credit card. And when that option isn’t available, it impacts their impression … and possibly their decision.
That’s why it’s time for you to consider adding credit cards as a method of payment for your products or services.
If this idea makes you squirm because of the fees attached to credit card payments, you’re in good company. This is the main reason why business owners resist. When you watch this video you’ll see the benefits outweigh the service charges.
Accepting credit cards legitimizes your business
As a business, you must go through a whole series of checks and steps with your bank to set up a merchant account in order to be able to accept credit cards.
Doing so adds credibility and legitimacy to your business.
When clients or potential clients see that you accept credit cards, they know you’ve adhered to those steps and you’ve passed through those hoops.
You’ll boost your sales
You’ll be able to expand your reach on a global scale because you’re not confined by currency restrictions.
The option to pay by credit card makes it possible for clients all over the world to access your products and services, easily and conveniently.

- Stop having those awkward money conversations throughout the course of your work together.
- Stop having to chase your clients for money they owe you.
When you take the money conversation off the table, you’re able to focus on doing your amazing work, and not get distracted by potentially uncomfortable conversations.
If you want to streamline the way you get paid and give your clients the convenience they crave, it’s time to consider accepting credit cards.
