How Much $ Can You Save? Free (Local) Point of Sale System? Yes!

Oct 4, 2021 9:09:44 AM / by Thomas Greenman posted in Surcharging, EdgeServ POS, Non-Cash Adjustment

0 Comments

Because we recently have had so many customers ask about ways to eliminate credit card fees, we thought this might be worth repeating!

Finding ways to save money in your business can be a real challenge.

One of the methods Skurla’s has in it’s toolbox is surcharging or non-cash adjustment (NCA for short). It is a simple way of passing on (or sharing) the costs of credit card processing to customers  who don’t want to pay cash. Our point of sale system can automatically add a fee of  up to 3.99% to all card based transactions. The end result is that a majority of your credit card fees are eliminated or drastically reduced.

Well then, you ask, how much can surcharging/NCA save me?

The answer: Take your current monthly credit card fees - multiply that by 12. That’s your yearly savings! 🤣

But seriously, while NCA can’t always remove ALL of your fees, it can reduce the majority of them.  Even more if you are a business that doesn’t take tips. Couple that with a free, feature rich POS, and you may just be laughing all the way to bank.

The 5 Questions on Inventory 

(or why is it such mystery how to manage inventory effectively?)

 Hello Alaskans! Another winter is coming, and we’ve had another year of pandemic under our belts.  For those in the retail and grocery realm, maybe you’ve had a chance to regroup and strategize about what you can do to do improve.  I suspect that the word “inventory” has come up a lot - if so you’re not alone.  Retailers across the board have had inventory issues since 2020, and while it’s gotten better in some ways, but it continues to be an issue.

Providing More Value

The other day, someone asked me about our labor rates.  If I were to try to give you our rates right off the top of my head, it’d be a vague recollection of a rate from a few years ago.  Why?  Most of our customers are on PaaS (Point of Sale as a Service) agreements, where service is included for most issues. It’s a rare occasion that they get billed.
