Credit Card Readers can be a great way to increase your sales. Storefront sales are where these are typically the most handy when customers may not have cash.

Did you know?...

The average popcorn sale increases by over 10% when you accept credit cards.

- Credit Card Readers allow you to accept credit cards
- Use multiple readers at different locations if you like
- Dollars are transferred directly into the unit account. Refer to the account setup flyer (online).
- Most readers offer a “Salesman Mode” where you can invite others in your unit to a main account and keep track of all sales. Be aware of fees with this.
- Fees are a responsibility of the unit. But remember, the fees are on sales that you would not normally have landed, not your entire sale. Just a few successful transactions would more than cover any fees.
- Upload a template with popcorn product to your reader for easy transactions.
