No-Hassle Business Funding from OMEGA Processing

September 28, 2017

Want to stock up on inventory before the busy holiday season? Do you have expansion plans for 2018? OMEGA Processing’s business funding program provides working capital so that you can expand, remodel, upgrade equipment, hire new employees, retire debit or meet any other cash needs.

With our funding program, you enter into a purchase agreement with OMEGA Processing. In exchange for an designated amount of funding, you contract to sell a set amount of future credit card receipts back to OMEGA Processing every month. The specified percentage of the receipts and the term of the payback agreement are agreed upon ahead of time.

Advantages to you?

  • No collateral, hidden fees or closing costs
  • No hassle – we deduct the payment automatically from your credit card receipts
  • No need to worry about making set payment amount during down times because payment percentage is tied to credit card sales.

When Should You Start Planning for the Holiday Shopping Season? TODAY

September 13, 2017

The countdown to Black Friday 2017 is on. There’s no need to panic yet, but the best time to start preparing for the upcoming holiday shopping season is NOW.

Gift cards are perennially the most requested holiday gift item. That means getting your gift card program in top shape is definitely a priority. Consider these facts:

  • Over $100 billion is spent annually gift cards
  • A majority of gift card recipients spend an average of 38 percent MORE than the face value of the card. That means a customer coming into your location and using a $25 gift card, will spend, on average, $34.50.
  • Card users are less price sensitive. Consumers are 2.5 times as likely to pay full price for an item when using a gift card.

How can you best leverage your gift card and rewards program to boost your holiday sales? Here are a few tips.

  • Display your cards in top traffic areas, including check out, hostess stands or customer service desks.
  • Include a gift card reminder on sales receipts.
  • Add an incentive to gift card purchases, such as an extra $10 card or a small gift.
  • Host a prize drawing for all shoppers who purchase a gift card.
  • Donate preloaded cards to a local charity, school festival or other community event.
  • Post gift card reminder messages throughout your website.
  • Train and incentivize your staff to sell gift cards, including messaging on name tags, buttons or hats.

There are a lot of gift card programs out there. How does OMEGA’s program stand out in the crowded marketplace? For one thing, OMEGA’s cards also act as a customer loyalty/rewards card. Enroll users in your loyalty program to strengthen ties with the customer.

In addition, we offer professionally designed and customized accessories, such as envelopes, card holders, display stands and signage. And, our program comes with a free mobile app, so you never miss the opportunity for a gift card sale or redemption.

Turning a Tablet Into a Top Sales and Operational Asset

September 6, 2017

You wouldn’t buy something without gathering some information. So why sell something without capturing data about the sale? By not doing so, it’s difficult to gain an accurate understanding of your business, its successes and its potential areas for improvement.

Today’s tablet-based point-of-sale (POS) systems provide you with a scalable tool that can take your business to a new level at a much lower cost than traditional, legacy POS systems. They are simple to use and manage, and the cloud-based app means they are portable. Plus, they process transactions safely and securely using the latest EMV and contactless payments technology.

POS-Tablet

While the systems and their features vary, here’s a brief overview of tablet-based POS technology.

WHAT

Today’s cutting-edge tablet-based POS systems typically consist of an online payment app and a tablet device. Stands, cash drawers, printers and other peripherals are also available. Sales data is kept in the “cloud” so that it easily accessible from any device. In addition, some systems store sales information locally on the tablet device.

WHY

Launching a tablet-based POS system requires a significantly smaller upfront investment than a traditional POS. In addition, the design lends itself Ito increased flexibility for system design and integration into both current and future technology.

Tablet POS systems give owners the ability to manage their business on the go and lend themselves to improved technical service and troubleshooting capabilities. They typically include labor and inventory management tools to streamline business operations. Finally, pay-at-the-table, EMV capabilities and other features provide consumers with an increased sense of safety and security.

HOW

Every business has different needs. That’s why OMEGA offers a varied line of tablet POS systems to our merchants. Below is a brief look at each system’s features and advantages.

Lavu – A full-featured POS system, Lavu was the first iPad POS system in the App store.

A gift card and loyalty program is available for an additional fee.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcEHZ5elb_s
