Say goodbye to excessive swipe fees! Now is the time to switch to app-based ACH payment. Switching transactions to ACH payment eliminates swipe fees and doubles the profit margin for retailers. From a customer's perspective, ACH payments deduct directly from their bank accounts, providing a nearly real-time draw of funds, saving retailers costly credit card fees and saving customers costly interest charges.
How can C-StorePay help you connect with your customers?
Motivate customers to switch to ACH and activate your loyalty mobile app
Convert your mobile fuel customers to in-store customers with instant and attractive convenience offers
Pass some of the savings to customers as rollbacks, discounts and other loyalty rewards
