Merchant Processor Offers Free POS To New and Established Merchants

Newport, RI (PressExposure) February 24, 2010 -- Merchant Services LTD and it’s Northeastern Sales Division has announced the launch of a six month-long national marketing campaign to promote it’s free Point Of Sale system. Among business productivity solutions, the adoption of the latest innovation and convenience in payment processing has systems flying out the door. During the next six months, Merchant Services LTD is offering restaurants and other retailers the opportunity to participate in this special promotional initiative where they’ll receive a free state-of-the-art touch-screen point of sale system complete with a cash register, key board, mouse and a front and back end printer.

Michael C. Sweitzer, Vice President of Northeastern Sales, noted, “Businesses large and small are evolving with technology and cashless payment solutions. And it’s undeniable that consumer buying habits are changing in favor of such. With our POS terminals, the benefit to the business owner is an increase in productivity and more time to focus on other important areas of their business. The system also makes for creative consumer interaction by way of delivering various marketing ideas –such as sending a client 20% off their next meal on their Birthday.

The POS works amazingly well for restaurants because of all the feedback we receive on a regular basis. And I know the big question is –“How can we afford to provide a free system and is it really free?” We have a mission to help business owners reduce expenses and eliminate added costs. And we’ve accomplished this with our POS deployment. We upfront the cost of the system which would otherwise cost the merchant $4000 or more plus software costs. Under a five year contract, the merchant will have typically demonstrated enough card processing volume to effectively cover our costs of the system.

Unlike a lease where there’s an additional monthly obligation and another bill to pay, we eliminate that chocking effect. Businesses doing under $25,000 per month will be affected by a $1.50 per day cost and that’s it -a small price to pay for state of the art technology that will dramatically increase productivity. Plus we go as far as delivering a preferred processing rate at 1.69% which for a restaurant is unheard of. The only other cost to the merchant is a $125 installation and training fee along with a $250 refundable deposit.

For the business doing under $25,000, should at the end of a year their volume is over $300,000, we’ll reimburse them the $1.50 per day/per terminal cost. If anything in my career, it’s integrity that I hold very close to my chest. I’m proud to be one of the industry leaders in helping to promote widespread use of our systems and solutions. Our partner in this technology has been selling systems for 20 years with many satisfied clients and thousands of systems in the marketplace. And I can’t thank them enough for this amazing opportunity to partner with them”.

Merchant Services LTD has taken the industry politics and left them at the back door without a key. They also take proactive steps to educate their sales associates and staff so prospective merchants can feel confident of how their solutions will be of benefit. With their new campaign, they keep things as simple as 'ABC'.

To further support its promotional efforts, Mr. Sweitzer and Merchant Services LTD will begin hosting a monthly series of value-added business development solutions exclusively for clients. Mr. Sweitzer has spent the last twenty plus years in business development and industry solutions for the hospitality sector and other retail businesses. The first series, "Business Strategies for the New Environment", is scheduled for launch Spring of 2010. Michael Sweitzer will discuss current and future strategies for various industries.
