Hi, Guys.

I work with Harbortouch, which is a company specializing in Point of Sale solutions and credit card processing systems. While the majority of our work is in hospitality, we now provide our services for most small businesses and smaller retailers.

Here's why you should consider us for your POS Systems:

    We have partnered with and been endorsed by Jon Taffer of Bar Rescue, entirely to help streamline restaurants and help business owners get past the headaches they have been encountering.
    We are known for our reliability and user-friendliness.
    We offer our systems with no up-front costs.
    Free 24/7 tech support.
    Free installation.
    Free system upgrades/updates as needed.
    Free credit card processing systems.
    Free training sessions.
    Free warranties for everything you get from us.
    *** We offer to meet or beat any rates you are currently paying for your credit card processing. ***
    As a Shift4 Company, we do have an A+ rating with the BBB.

For those individuals and businesses that don't need a full Point of Sale system, we offer credit card systems that are fully compliant with the changes occurring at the end of June.

    Our VX 520 system is also free (as in, totally free). These have: Lower transaction rates; No monthly fees; No annual fees; No catch; No kidding.
    Yes, we still offer to meet or beat any rates from your current credit card processing company.
    We offer other credit card processing systems, including systems that work with your cell phone.

If you are in eCommerce or build websites, you should know that we also offer solutions via authorize.net.


*** Edited to add: If you are sick of paying credit card processing fees and still want a free, PCI-compliant credit card terminal, you can enroll in our Cash Discount Program. You can read more about this at a lower point on this thread and/or you can always contact me for more details.

Please check out the links, below, to learn more about us.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Can you explain a little about how credit processing works? Like, what would a small business have to do to use it and get paid? I've got a friend thats looking to start a small business and we have no experience. Any answer appreciated. Thanks!

Those are some good questions.

If I could stress anything, it's that the changes occurring on June 30th will affect everyone's ability to process credit cards. Merchants may discover that they no longer can take ANY cards, whereas others will start getting hit with extra fines. The new BIN2 Mastercards (Mastercards beginning with the number 2) can only be used with the new terminals.

The good news for your friend is that our VX520 is free to merchants. We also offer to meet or beat any rates he might otherwise be paying. We transfer funds to his bank immediately, funding usually arrives within 1-2 business days depending upon when he closes out of his system.

I hope that answers your questions. If you need anything else, please let me know.

A VX520 is hardware, I gather. I'd assume it connects to any type of internet connection, is that right?

You have a choice of connections with the VX520. It offers everything from dial-up, a mix of dial and Ethernet, or dial, Ethernet and GPRS. Dial-up and high-speed Ethernet being common needs. There is also an optional battery that enables mobility because there are no distance constraints.

A quick Google search shows me this sells for $161.00 on Amazon and that's not including the paper receipts, which must always be kept on hand. We send you both and give you free receipt paper as needed. All you do is cover shipping costs, which is much cheaper than paying for the paper and getting free shipping via Amazon, assuming you have Amazon Prime. We still offer to meet or beat any current rates a merchant or business owner is paying for his credit card processing.

This is as close as you will ever get to upgrading your system and making money while doing it.

On its own, the VX520 is ideal for restaurant owners, merchants, and other business owners who do not need a full Point of Sale (POS) system but still need to be current and reliable on their credit card processing system.

Restaurant owners and other small business owners who want to streamline their many processes, improve their efficiency, keep track of inventory (including how many items are left in any specials they may be running), keep track of employees logging in and out, and still have full control over their cash box would be better served with our full POS.

Please let me know what your friend needs for his business so I can make the best recommendation.

As always, my consultations are free and I make myself available to answer any questions that arise at any time.

This is a Pretty Big Update:

I am already seeing credit card bills from restaurants, merchants, and other small businesses that show they are being penalized for having a PCI non-compliant terminal. The fines have ranged from $16 - to over $30. This will keep happening each month until it becomes much more substantial. The PCI Security Standards site mentions fines, fraud losses, legal costs, the termination of ability to process credit cards, and eventually going out of business as the potential problems that can happen to companies that do not get compliant credit card terminals.

https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/

The thing to keep in mind, whether or not you want a full-fledged point-of-sale system or just a free credit card terminal, is that all of our hardware/software is fully-warrantied, fully-compliant, and we offer to meet or beat whatever rates a person or business is getting from his current credit card processing company.

No kidding.

Guys, if you have an extra $16-$30+ you're willing to blow each month, choose to protect the sensitive information of your clients and then send me monthly roses or chocolates.

I'm good for it and will even send you a thank-you card.

In the meantime, consider how credit thieves and full-fledged identity thieves can ruin lives beginning with a person's credit information.

Take care.

For those businesses that only need a charger while they're on-the-go, Harbortouch's Merchant Solutions has partnered with a trusted third-party vendor to provide Charge Anywhere. This plug-in device provides merchants with a PCI-compliant and secure solution to process card payments directly within QuickBooks.®

Please contact me for more details.

For those people not in hospitality, Harbortouch Checkout offers excellent merchant services. These include:

A fully-programmed point-of-sale system the instant it arrives.
24/7 free technical support.
Free installation. (I will also be there at the time of installation.)
Free warranties.
Free training resources. (I can also help in this regard.)
Inventory tracking, so you don't have to write everything down in 5 different places.
Customer databases.
Loyalty programs for repeat customers.
Flexible pricing and discounts, if applicable.
Text and e-mail marketing.
Employee management, including time clocks and commissions, if applicable.
Appointment setting, if applicable.
Many more functions.

If you aren't sure you need a full point-of-sale system, we can offer you both a free VX520 credit card processor or a Harbortouch HarborPay, which allows you to turn your smartphone into a credit card terminal. ALL of our systems are fully PCI-compliant. As we would be doing your credit card processing, we will guarantee to meet or beat your current credit card processing rates no matter which route you go with us.

Yes, as a Shift4 company, we have an A+ rating with the BBB.

If you're a business that's in a high-traffic area, it might be a good idea to get an ATM. ATM fees are one way to help generate some passive income for your business, while also delivering potential clients to your doorstep.

Forbes.com wrote an article this past May about generating income from ATMs:

Quote:
Sample Annual Gross Profit for Fees

The average ATM customer nationally withdraws $60 dollars per transaction. You’d expect an ATM to have between 8 to 10 transactions on an average daily basis. This would mean that $600 dollars are withdrawn per day. Your fees collected based on $3.00 per transaction would be $24 dollars – conservatively. Assuming your ATM processor fee is $0.20 per transaction, the ATM processing cost is $1.60. Assuming the venue owner cost per transaction is $0.50, their fees are $4.00. The total in transaction fees deducted is $5.60. Your gross profit is $18.40. Your gross profit per 30 day month is $552. Annually, this ATM would generate $6,624 in gross profit.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/cameronken ... d086d57b1e

What makes Harbortouch unique is that we are our own bank and can help businesses get the funding and equipment they need, even if those businesses have been unable to secure capital through other means. If you choose to get an ATM from us, you can set your own denominations ($10 or $20) depending on what is best for your store. All new ATMs can communicate through both dial-up and IP lines. Harbortouch also can provide wireless upgrades to any ATM through AT&T cellular network.

As we have an A+ rating with the BBB, you know you're working with an honest company that does everything above board.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Free PCI-Compliant Credit Card Terminal and $0 Fees with Cash Discount Program


If rising rent prices are putting a strain on your business, here's a way you can help negate those charges by saving money on credit card transactions.

With a Cash Discount Program from Harbortouch, you can essentially eliminate the cost of accepting credit cards at your business.

This is how it works: By enrolling in our Cash Discount Program, you would offer a discount to anyone who pays by cash. It is legal in all 50 states and requires little regulation. Unlike surcharging, which is illegal in Colorado, a 4% service charge is applied to all store sales. The service charge will be waived when paying with cash.

This allows you to offset the card processing fees you would otherwise incur, resulting in significant savings for you and your business. This program can all but eliminates credit card processing fees.

If you are not wanting to enroll in this program, we still offer our free (as in, totally free) VX520 credit card processing terminals while offering to meet or beat your current credit card processing rates.
