When it comes to purchasing, credit and debit cards are king. According to market research firm Javelin, by 2017 only 23 percent of point-of-sale transactions will be made with cash, making it critical for every business to have a trusted relationship with a payments processor. For small and medium-sized businesses, this can prove to be a challenge. The payments industry is a competitive space, and each processor offers a different mix of features. With strict budgets and a variety of specific needs, SMBs require a solution with low processing fees, but more importantly, an arsenal of tools and features that help grow the business.
SecureNet has joined the Yahoo Commerce Central app gallery with their new Mobile PayOS app, providing a solution to the gap in credit card processing for SMBs. SecureNet has the award-winning platform and industry-leading features small businesses need.
More than 21 million small businesses now have access to SecureNet’s robust services via Yahoo.
