In positioning itself as a pioneer of omni-channel payment solutions, Mint Payments has empowered businesses to take payments to their customers online and via mobile and tablet devices across Australia and the Asia-Pacific.
Designed to enable retailers to perform effective revenue management, Mint Payments has been steadfast in driving a retail revolution whereby businesses are positioned to take full control of their financial operations and improve their cash flow.
With more than 5,500 retailers using Mint Payments, their rapid expansion has seen them listed as one of the 50 Most Innovative Companies by the Australian Financial Review. Here are just a few of the reasons why businesses are flocking to use Mint Payments:
Turn your iPad into an EFTPOS machine
As retailers embrace Hike’s iPad POS to sell to their customers, complementing that with the Mint mPOS card reader, that connects via Bluetooth, is the ultimate convergence in style and sophistication. Forgo any unnecessary wires or cables and instead take a streamlined approach to your POS transactions.
On-the-go sales made easy
As a compact device, the Mint card reader can fit inside your pocket, making it ridiculously easy for retailers to sell on-the-go. Whether you are a mobile merchant or planning on being one, Mint’s pint size device will make taking your store on the road a breeze.
Works with all major debit and credit cards
Not only does Mint Payments work with all major debit and credit cards in Australia – including NFC contactless payments – but any sales processed by your card reader will be settled into your bank account the very next day. It’s part of Mint’s concentrated push to have retailers always stay on top of their cash flow. Best of all it is PCI compliant, giving you the ease of mind that your payments are secure.
Low transaction fees and no lock-in contracts
With consideration for the retailer in mind, all Mastercard and Visa purchases are charged at a flat rate and EFTPOS charges are as low as 33c, making Mint Payments very attractive from a price point of view.
And as Mint also understands the importance of flexibility to help small businesses grow, there are no lock-in contracts to subscribe to, giving retailers more choice and freedom.
In adding Vantiv and Mint Payments to Hike’s growing stable of payment providers, we’re extremely delighted to be providing our users with more avenues and opportunities to take the next step in their retail journeys.
