Cash has become one of the least used options when customers make payments. It’s clear why people prefer credit card payments. They are easy, time-saving, and secure and offer benefits like reward points. Hence, it makes sense for small business owners to ensure that credit cards are accepted.

You will want to select a credit card provider that will offer a good rate on the transaction processing. Credit card payments can also be accepted through opening a merchant account, setting up payment terminals with a card reader and a POS, and also providing scope for customers to make payments through the Internet and over-the-phone.
