All Major Credit Cards Accepted! Intuit's New Simplified Credit Card Processing Software Lets Millions of Businesses say ''Yes'' to Plastic
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Now small businesses can say "yes" to their customers more often. E[acute accent]Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq:INTU) today announced a new simplified credit card processing solution designed for the millions of small businesses that don't need a full accounting package or a high end merchant account service. The new QuickBooks(R) Credit Card Processing Kit, priced at $39.95, delivers breakthrough ease-of-use for small businesses that handle less than $5,000 in credit card transactions each month. E[acute accent]Previously, these small businesses had the difficult choice of buying a solution that over-served their simple needs, resulting in high set-up costs, monthly minimum fees and required credit card transactions, or the unpleasant option of saying "no" to customers wanting to pay with credit.
E[acute accent]Making Business Simple
E[acute accent]The Credit Card Processing Kit is another example of Intuit's effort to add simplicity to the company's entire product line. The product focuses exclusively on the essential credit card processing requirements these customers need -- ease-of-use, affordability and quick setup. E[acute accent]The kit helps small business owners turn their PCs into credit card terminals through a short and simple process. The kit includes everything a small business needs to accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and Diner's Club credit cards, and signing up takes less than 10 minutes. There are no manuals to read, no long term contracts to sign, and small business owners are not stuck paying expensive monthly minimums. E[acute accent]With only a few weeks in the market, the QuickBooks Credit Card Processing Kit is a hit with small businesses. E[acute accent]"The QuickBooks Credit Card Processing Kit is exactly what I've been looking for!" said Beverly Stout, owner Stout Appraisal Services in Dayton, Ohio. "In the past, I had to say 'no' to clients who wanted to pay by credit card and in some cases, I lost the job. Now, I can give my clients the option to pay with a credit card at a price that fits my budget. And I've already been able to bring in new customers -- and income -- as a result."
