If you manage a hotel in today’s digital world, you cannot afford to ignore the payment revolution which has utterly changed the hospitality industry and the customer behaviour.
People embraced new and better ways to pay and your guests expect that you do the same thing.
If you are planning to take this step and start accepting digital payments, check out this list of 10 reasons why the myPOS payment terminal is the right choice for your hotel business.
#1 No monthly fees or hidden costs
Plenty of the payment processing services on the market have hefty fees and strict volume commitments.
One of the greatest advantages of myPOS is that there are no annual or monthly service fees to accept payments. You only pay a small charge for each processed transaction and there aren’t any requirements when it comes to the volume of processed transactions.
Everything is as simple as that – if you stop using payment terminal or the free of charge e-money multi-currency account for a couple of months, there are no costs for your business. Isn’t that great (looking at you seasonal businesses)?
