Besides payroll and food costs, credit card processing expenses are one of the largest monthly expenses restaurants incur. The good news is that there are now programs, like the non-cash adjustment (NCA) program that can help offset those expenses! These programs are becoming more popular and accepted by customers as an appropriate cost of dining out.
If you’ve been thinking about implementing an NCA program, here are 3 reasons why you’ll find it beneficial:
1. Reduce or eliminate credit card processing expenses
An NCA Program offers a discount for customers who choose to pay by cash, and a small percentage, which can be no more than 4%, for those who choose to pay with a credit or debit card. This fee can help restaurant owners offset processing expenses and reduce operating costs.
We are finding that our customers are saving thousands of dollars a year, providing more opportunities for growth and reinvestment in your business!
2. qualify for a free or discounted restaurant point of sale system
Not only are restaurants saving big on their processing expenses, but when restaurants work with a local point of sale provider, like Cervion Systems, they may also qualify for a free or discounted point of sale system without sacrificing the functionality or modern features that restaurants need for success.
Cervion Systems provides and supports modern POS software and hardware solutions that are NCA compatible for restaurants.
* Restauranteurs must meet specific qualifications for a free or discounted POS System.
3. integration with the point of sale
We have come across restaurants that have set up an NCA program using a non-integrated credit card terminal, which can create operational issues, limited features, and difficulty reconciling reports and tips. As restaurants begin to activate more complex systems by accepting contactless cards, Apple Pay, and EMV chip cards, make sure you contact your local restaurant point of sale dealer who has the expertise to configure and set up a fully integrated point of sale solution compatible with an NCA program.
Cervion Systems has trusted POS advisors available to work with your restaurant and determine if a non-cash-adjustment program is a good fit for your restaurant.
