Amazon Go - Why You Want It

The future of shopping has arrived with the help of Amazon Go. Thanks to this new innovative shopping technology, Amazon has literally made shopping easy for its Prime members and it's expected to expand up to 3,000 stores by 2021. These innovative stores require no checkout. Prime members can now go to these stores and pick up the items they want without talking to anyone. All they have to do is walk into an Amazon Go store and the technology automatically charges the payment method they have on file in their Amazon Prime accounts. The best part about Amazon Go is that it has much you can leverage. Here are a few key benefits of using Amazon Go:

Credit Card Processing Pricing: Are You Getting Value For Money?

The most common form of credit card processing pricing is the tiered option. Depending on the nature of the transaction, the applicable fee can vary greatly -- making cost forecasts exceptionally difficult.

But there's another option for merchants, and it makes projecting the cost of credit card fees a lot easier. It's called "interchange" or "cost plus" pricing, and it's growing in popularity around the world.

The Benefits of an Inventory Management System

Whether you run a retail store with a constantly rotating stock or a service business like a salon or tattoo parlor, an inventory management system can help. Imagine pulling out your tattoo machine only to realize you're out of the color red. That can seriously limit your design options. What about running out of 30 volume developer at a salon? Sure, you can probably blend a mix of 20 and 40 volume to handle color, but the result won't be the same. With an inventory management system that’s part of your credit card processing system, you never need to worry about missing product.
