Never Miss A Tip

Make it easy on the customer

Sometimes the cost of doing business is upgrading your processes. Last week, a mortgage company asked me for my fax number. square phone readerHaven’t had one of those for 5 years. Then they asked for my home number. Nope, did away with that almost 10 years ago. How about a voided check? No again – we stopped using checks a year ago. Later that afternoon, the dog groomer asked for a check or cash. I rarely carry cash these days. That groomer could easily be taking credit cards using a service such as Square.

What I do have is a phone and a credit card. And you know what? That credit card will be the next thing to go. People truly want to give you money. Make it easy on them to do just that. How much money are you leaving behind?

    Steeleworker Fred Blanton emails to say: PayPal has the card scanner. I also get 1% back when I use the PayPal master card, so I actually pay 2% or less and haven’t found a lower rate, plus millions have PayPal accounts and can pay me at an even lower rate. –Thanks Fred!

  2. Another reason I love Disney’s new MagicBand system and the convenience it provides. Being able to use my MagicBand to unlock my room, as my ticket to all four theme parks, to check in at FastPass+ entrances, and to easily charge refreshments and souvenirs to my credit card on file is amazing. The technology in MagicBands truly is magical!

    A couple of weeks ago I went to my bank to get a couple of transaction registers. The bank officer found a couple but said they barely carry them anymore, but I could get one or two the next time I order checks. “Geeze.” I said, “I write only one check a month, for rent.” Every other transaction is online or debit card. The last time I used bills at the grocery store I held one up by the corners and said to the young clerk, “This is called cash. In the olden days we used it to pay for stuff.”
