Credit Card Processing Arts, Crafts | Trade Show Merchant Account

Are you in the arts and crafts industry? Do you have credit card processing capabilities allowing you to take card payments from customers at trade shows or festivals? If not, you should.

With over 25,000 arts and crafts festivals in the U.S. each year, and millions in attendance, there’s no question that these events are lucrative for the participating merchants. Not to mention, just plain fun.

Some arts and crafts vendors rely on trade shows as their primary means of sales, while others enjoy the opportunity to get out of the store and network with customers and other vendors.

Of course, the main objective is to sell. These days, people tend to carry less cash and prefer to pay with plastic. What does this mean to merchants like you?

Without a trade show merchant account, you may be losing out. The Transaction Group (TTG) can help.

Which option is best for my business?

There are many debit and credit card processing options that can help your business. TTG will assist you in determining which options are best for your specific needs.

Many businesses, especially those that have products or services for sale on their website, utilize an Internet merchant account. The use of a shopping cart and a secure payment gateway make payment processing a breeze, as well as a create a positive customer experience.

Some merchants at trade shows simply showcase products at their exhibit space, then offer the use of computer terminals so that customers can immediately make purchases on the website. This works well in most cases, but mobile payment processing is often best for this environment.

A smart phone solution utilizes a small device attached to your iPhone, Droid, or other types of smart phones. The hi-tech device offers the convenience of simply swiping a customer’s card to complete the sales transaction. The customer’s receipt can be e-mailed to them instantaneously.

If you don’t have a smart phone and prefer swiping cards rather than keying in the transaction over DialPay, a wireless credit card processing terminal may be the solution you’re looking for. A wireless terminal is like a traditional terminal but can be used for mobile payment processing as long as there is a wi-fi connection available.
