Integrity supports hundreds of point of sale systems, including the latest in mobile and tablet point of sale.
For our partners selling merchant services, Integrity’s experience with point of sale (POS) integration and configuration means your merchants will get the service that best fits their business. Integrity works directly with your merchant’s POS or gateway provider to quickly and effectively provide the right processing solution.
Our dedicated Point of Sale Processing Support Team will make sure your merchants have exceptional service and support during the process.
Here are some questions that will help guide the point of sale discussion.
1. What point of sale system is your merchant using, and are they happy with it?
Choosing the right processing solution with Integrity is a great time to also discuss a merchant’s point of sale needs. Does a secure dedicated hardware terminal meet their needs? Are they happy with their current software or cloud based solution?
Merchants are using software-based point of sale systems to run more and more of their business, from inventory management and employee scheduling to accounting and social media management. We have set up thousands of merchants on the right POS solution for them, such as Integrity Mobile, Clover, ShopKeep, and many more.
And if a merchant is happy with their current point of sale system: Great! Integrity’s experts will ensure they quickly get up and running with our industry leading processing solutions.
2. Do you need help getting payments into your client’s existing point of sale system?
There are countless combinations of POS systems, payment gateways, shopping carts, and middleware.
Rely on our experience and let Integrity’s experts configure these systems quickly and securely for your current merchants while you find the next merchant to put on the right point of sale and processing solutions. Let us do the technical heavy lifting so you can focus on selling.
3. Is your merchant looking for EMV equipment for their point of sale system?
EMV is a technology that helps secure every payment transaction, from the time a chip card is inserted into an EMV card reader through settlement. This added security helps consumers by protecting their card information, and it helps merchants by reducing chargeback risk.
POS systems are certified with particular EMV compliant hardware. Integrity’s experience with and support for a wide array of EMV hardware ensures that a merchant will get the right EMV equipment for their POS system quickly.
4. Which kinds of payments does your merchant’s point of sale system need to process?
Integrity can work with merchants to accept any type of payment in traditional face-to-face transaction settings, ecommerce, or mobile settings. To facilitate the setting up the point of sale system, find out if your merchant plans to accept all credit cards and checks. If your merchant needs ecommerce integration, will they be accepting PayPal? Will they accept eChecks?
Understanding the payment requirements for your merchant will help us provide the smoothest configuration. Once we have a list of payment options, Integrity can connect each type of payment for your merchant.
5. Will payments include tips? How does your merchant wish to handle gratuities?
In the US, restaurants and bars usually accept tips after the sale. We are starting to see the adoption of customer-facing tipping, especially at coffee shops and cafes where customers pay before they are seated. Integrity can work with your merchant to find the terminal and equipment that works with both how they wish to handle gratuities and their preferred point of sale system.
6. Does your merchant need off-site processing?
Your merchant may need off-site processing. From service visits to trade shows to food delivery, transactions are often made outside of a retail location. Consumers are looking for versatility in how they pay and are becoming comfortable using their credit and debit cards in more “on-the-go” settings. For your merchants, being able to convert sales immediately or accept payment at the end of a service visit can be a powerful boost to their business.
Advances in wireless technology and security have promoted the growth of mobile POS while interest and adoption continues to grow. The market for mobile point of sale is poised to grow 400% in the next four years.1
7. Does your merchant need multi-location or multi-channel payment processing?
Many of your merchants may require point of sale configuration over multiple locations. Others may have a web-based store that is also processing payments. Integrity can work with your merchants and point of sale companies to keep payments streamlined across venues.
We can help merchants grow. Our fast, flexible deployment gives businesses the equipment they need quickly to start processing in new places. If a merchant needs to extend the reach of their point of sale system, we are here to help.
