With the kind of market presence Square has, it can be a challenge to see past them to the other players in the payment processing game. For those looking to find the Best Mobile POS system for your small business, shopping around a little can give you options: like Moolah. Let’s look at where Moolah shines, when compared to the big boys Square.
Moolah allows you to leverage all of the major POS options, from mobile, tablet, and payment processing on your website. When it comes to comparing POS equipment, though, the ace up our sleeves is the relationship we have with Poynt, one of most beautiful pieces of equipment on the market for Point-of-Sale.
Looking at the Poynt terminal, you’ll be able to notice the difference immediately. Rather than the flipping and rotating of Square’s or Clover’s interface, Poynt sports two interfaces, meaning the interaction between you and your customer is quicker and cleaner. You’re also mobile, with Poynt’s ergonomic design allowing you to go to your customer with the terminal to complete the transaction.
Most importantly, Poynt’s terminal seeks to be all-inclusive, and compared to Square, it succeeds beautifully. What if you need to print receipts? If you’re using Square’s solution, you’ll need to buy the $300 accessory that sits on the desk, taking up space. Poynt’s fully-integrated thermal printer is impossible to notice, because it’s part of the unit. The Square terminal is actually designed to work with an iPad, which becomes another hidden start-up cost, if you don’t already have one. By comparison, thanks to the wonders of cooperation, Moolah’s partnership with Poynt allows you to get your very own terminal free of charge when you sign up with Moolah. What can be clearer?
To break in down clearly, Moolah offers a card present fee of 2.69% + $0.29, or $19.95 per month, whichever is greater. By comparison, Square offers 2.75% per swipe, dip or tap, which sounds pretty good until you also notice that they charge 2.9% + $0.30 for invoices and E-commerce payments, and 3.5% + $0.15 for keyed-in transactions. If you’re a vendor that depends on a variety of payments, and especially if you are in E-commerce, Moolah starts to look pretty good.
Even for those who anticipate swipes to be the main part of their card processing, once you factor in the elevated offering of Poynt’s all-inclusive terminal, Moolah’s solution continues to look good for businesses looking for the best mobile POS system. Moolah & Poynt: it’s one of those partnerships that give the best of both worlds, and pass those advantages on to you, the customer.
