Whether it’s a small mom and pop store or a large chain of big box outlets, working in retail has a lot of moving parts that can take up quite a bit of time. While creating an enjoyable and seamless experience for your customers, you need to be coordinated with suppliers and staff, keep track of inventory, and ensure that everyone, including you, gets paid.
Interac e-Transfer can help you cut down on the time it takes to handle payments by allowing you to receive payments in real-time, send payments conveniently and securely to vendors and suppliers, and less processing fees and time than what normally comes when using a cheque.
