Total Merchant Supply is excited to announce a brand new product: the Launch Pad Package. This simple package is designed to give you more bang for your buck than the leading online POS sellers, like Toast, ever could. The best part? It’s only $30 a month! So what do you get for $30 a month? A lot! Like a subscription to either of our flagship cloud-based POS software, Total Restaurant POS or Merchant Advantage POS. These point of sale system software come with a ton of features and have plenty of add-ons, so they will be the perfect fit for any business. On top of that, you get a brand-new POS Windows computer and a top-of-the-line PIN pad that can accept all forms of payment, from swipe and chip readers to Apple Pay and Google Pay. Last but not least, a failover router. If the internet ever goes down, this router automatically switches you over to a cell tower and then switches back when your internet is restored. You will never have to worry about internet outages again! All of this comes with our top-rated Service Agreement, giving you peace of mind so you can focus on your business.
Better than Toast POS
We have all heard of Toast POS, and some think it’s pretty great. But is it really? Let’s compare it to the Launch Pad package from Total Merchant Supply. While Toast also gives you their software, PIN pad, and a POS terminal in their standard plan, they do not offer a failover router. So with the Toast standard plan, if the internet goes out, you are out of business. Toast also states they have Customer Care support, but can they send a tech to come right to your business to fix or replace a broken printer or POS terminal on a busy Saturday afternoon? They cannot, but Total Merchant Supply can. Is that the kind of support you need? Toast also charges you a rate of 2.99 percent plus $.15 on their merchant processing. First off, 2.99 percent is a fairly high rate on its own, as most businesses can get an effective rate of around 2.5 percent. That’s not including the $.15 you have to pay per transaction on top of that. So the more you make, the more you have to pay for Toast, on rates higher than they should be. With Launch Pad, it’s just $30 per month. There are ZERO credit card rates you have to pay. How can we do this? With an easy, straightforward Cash Discounting program that is included.
A Cash Discounting program allows small business owners to not have to pay any merchant processing fees. While Cash Discounting has been around for a long time, the pandemic has jettisoned its popularity in the past year–especially among local small businesses, making it a crucial tool that’s used by more than just gas stations now. So how does it work? You put up a sign on your front door and at the point of sale that informs them that if they choose to pay with a credit card, they will pay a 4 percent “non-cash adjustment” on their purchase. You will be incentivising the customer to pay with cash. Cash requires no merchant processing fees like credit cards. Now I know what you are thinking. The common fear with a Cash Discounting program is that if you implement one in your business, your whole customer base will all complain and a third or more will never shop at your business again. That may feel like a likely outcome, but let me tell you, with all the cash discounting programs Total Merchant Supply have helped small businesses implement over the years, that HAS NEVER HAPPENED. Not once. What does happen is a few regular customers will ask about it, and maybe, MAYBE, one customer will complain about it and that will be it. The huge majority of your customer base, think 95 percent plus, won’t even care. It’s a worry you don’t need to have when implementing a Cash Discounting program in your business.
With all of these advantages over Toast, there should be no question about which system you should go with for your business. But if you would like to get more info or are ready to get the ball rolling on getting your own Launch Pad Package, call Total Merchant Supply today!
