Winter is the perfect time for local business owners to reevaluate their point-of-sale (POS) payment processing strategies as they reflect on the holiday season and look toward another busy spring and summer.

If you experienced processing system outages due to obsolete technology during the peak shopping season or realized that by only accepting cash your business may have lost significant sales and revenue, the time is now to contact The Coop and discuss making a change.

Realizing that evaluating and adopting new POS technology can be a daunting task for business owners, The Coop has partnered with Clover to help simplify operations with an all-in-one payment processing system customized for retailers, restaurants and service businesses. And of course, increase sales and revenue, and, ultimately, the bottom-line of the business.

Whether you’re an artisan selling goods at craft fairs or a high-volume retailer or restaurateur with multiple locations, The Coop and Clover can craft the perfect solution to meet your needs.

The team at The Coop and Clover will conduct a thorough assessment with the customer to determine the unique needs of the business and determine which POS system is most appropriate. Clover solutions run the gamut from a contactless chip and swipe reader that wirelessly pairs to a mobile device to a fast and powerful all-in-one countertop POS and business management system with a second screen lapwing customers to view the transaction and initiate payment.

The possibilities for growing a business and enhancing customer service are endless with today’s Clover POS merchant services systems. Imagine finally being able to accept all forms of payment including debit, credit, EMV chip and tap cards, as well as Apple, Google and Samsung Pay? How about a professional service provider being able to take immediate payment instead of waiting for an invoice to be paid in 30 days? And during the pandemic recovery era, it is increasingly important to be able to accept and process curbside payments. Clover POS can do it all.

There are also more than 500 business-specific apps that can be incorporated into a customized POS system. They include a wait list app for restaurants, a salon appointment scheduler, inventory management, and so much more.

Take advantage of the winter slow period and make that call to The Coop’s business banking team, or inquire here.

Make sure your business is well prepared to accept and process a wide array of payment options before the annual influx of visitors and tourists arrive on Cape Cod, the South Shore and Southeastern Massachusetts,
