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.

How Much $ Can Surcharging/NCA Save You? Funny You Should Ask…

May 14, 2021 3:28:36 PM / by Thomas Greenman posted in Surcharging, EdgeServ POS, Non-Cash Adjustment

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 or heavily subsidized, feature rich POS, and you may just be laughing all the way to bank.

0 Comments

We are continuing to receive notices from most of our hardware vendors, like the one below from Ingenico.
 
"COVID-19 is continuing to significantly affect electronics manufacturing in 2021. This is impacting not only the payment technology market but all companies in the technology manufacturing space, from automotive to smart phones, every sector is being impacted. The reality is that while available capacity remains constant, there is a global shortage of components used in semiconductor manufacturing due to the limited availability of raw materials. As a result, lead times are increasing to 6+ months across all sectors."
