myPOS – the perfect solution for car rental businesses

Running a business has never been an easy task – as an owner you have to come up with a business strategy, enforce policies, keep the competition in check, deal with happy and unhappy clients and ultimately make a profit. The car rental business is no different – except that in these cases you will also have to encounter customers who book a car and never show up causing you financial losses. Isn’t that a problem? Fortunately, there is a simple solution to these sad situations and it comes in the form of POS terminals, created and sold by myPOS.

Why are these terminals the solution? Well, the answer is simple. They feature a special function that has been designed to beat such situations from the very beginning. It is called “MO/TO Payment” and targets car rental businesses in particular. What MO/TO Payment does is to allow business owners to accept payments over the phone, via e-mail or over the Internet. The major advantage that you get is that with the MO/TO function you will be able to charge your client’s debit or credit card remotely, get the required amount of money or block the sum in advance and in case of a no-show, you can get some of the money blocked as compensation. Thus you will not be completely helpless against no-shows and as a result suffer financial losses, be inefficient in business, etc. This function is even suitable for beauty salons, tattoo studios, hair-dressing salons and other similar businesses, which also have to deal with no-shows.

But is using MO/TO Payment difficult? The short answer is no. In fact, using it is a piece of cake. All it takes is to start the application, enter the amount of money that you wish to charge, then enter the debit or credit card number and the date of expiration of the card and then process the payment! You may get a paper receipt too! How does all this sound?

Which POS terminal for using MO/TO Payment would we recommend then? It really depends on your needs but then again you do not purchase a POS terminal every day so it would be a good idea to get a capable model that can serve you for years and have you covered when your business is growing.
