Can someone school me?


Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I soon will need to setup a system to accept online payment as well as mobile person to person payments. 

I run a equipment repair and inspection business and will shortly be working with a auction company and there customers.  I have up till now only accepted cash or checks. 

I need a mobile solution that i can take credit card payments and online. Can someone help me figure out a solution? Im really just not sure what too look for. 

Thank you for your time

So I'm assuming you don;t have a merchant account now to accept payments, correct? Some banks have mobile payment systems, apps, etc. If you are looking for something simple to get started, have a look at :

Paypal - https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/pay-with-app

Stripe: https://stripe.com/payments/features

Chase: https://merchantservices.chase.com/support/product-support/mobile

Hi,

My company just became a sponsor on AutoShopOwner.  I just read your prior post and thought I'd reach out.

My company, Loma Solutions, represents a 0% credit card fee solution.   We have 1000's of customers in the US and our solution makes auto shop owners thousands of extra dollars every year.

How does 0% processing work?
When your customer decides to pay with a card, they have 2 options.  If they use a credit card, a small percentage of the transaction will be charged to their card.  If they use a debit card, there will be no fee to the customer.  Our software does all the work and explains to the customer of their choice prior to the card being authorized.

What exactly are the costs to the merchant and to the customer?
For credit cards: Merchant pays zero credit card fees, the customer pays 3.5%  
For debit cards:  Merchant pays 1% + $0.25/authorization, the customer pays 0 fees

Facts:
- A card swiper is not needed: credit card information can be typed in a phone or computer or over the phone.  There is a 'brick' card swiper if needed*
- No set-up costs or any other fees
- Our agreement is month-to-month
- If you auto batch by 8:00 PM EST, you get your money the next day
- The solution complies with all card rules and regulations
- We'll have you up-and-running within a week

Benefits to the Merchant:
*** You are being fair to your customer by offering them a choice to pay a fee or not, while you are eliminating your credit card fees, which can be up to 2.5% of your total card sales.
- Simple to use and all charges are viewable through our real-time online portal.  
- Support: our team is there when you need us.  We will show you and anyone on your team how to use the solution, but it’s very straight forward.
 
Making you more money!
If your current credit card fees are 2.5% of your total card sales, for every $50,000 in credit card transactions, you'll put an extra $1,250 in your pocket.
 
* we will provide you with a ‘brick’ terminal: $35/month if needed.  This includes free paper re-supplies.

Is there a good time that you like to speak on a call?  Please let me know when works best.

      Typically, when productivity suffers, the shop owner or manager directs their attention to the technicians. Are they doing all they can do to maintain high billable hours? Are they as efficient as they can be?  Is there time being wasted throughout the technician’s day? 
      All these reasons factor into production problems, but before we point fingers at the technicians, let’s consider a few other factors.
      Are estimates being written properly? Are labor testing and inspections being billed out correctly? Are you charging enough for testing and inspecting, especially for highly specialized electrical, on-board computer issues, and other complex drivability work?  Is there a clear workflow process everyone follows that details every step from the write-up to vehicle delivery? Do you track comebacks, and is that affecting production?  Is the shop layout not conducive to high production? For example, is it unorganized, where shop tools, technical information, and equipment are not easily accessible to every technician?  Are you charging the correct labor rate and allowing for variables such as rust, vehicle age, and the fact that most labor guides are wrong? Also, is there effective communication between the tech and the service advisor to ensure that extra labor time is accounted for and billed to the customer? These are a few of the top reasons for low productivity problems. There are others, but the main point is to look at the entire operation. Productivity is a team effort.  Blaming the techs or other staff members does not get to the root cause in most cases.
      Maintaining adequate production levels is the responsibility of management to create the processes that will lead to high production while holding everyone accountable.

      By Hunt Demarest.    I heard about this guy, but only vaguely.  He was on my eventual to-listen-to list, but it hadn't bubbled up.  Who wants to listen to an accounting podcast????    Well, the timing was right and I saw a new Podcast entitled "Accounting for Internal and Warranty Work".  I listened and was pleasantly surprised.   First, a shout-out to Hunt.  He's not boring.  This is very important as I normally listen to these while commuting.  I don't want to fall asleep while driving!  He's likeable, and he covers his subjects quite well    After listening to this podcast, I immediately revamped my Warranty Work accounting method.   I know knew WHY it was important to follow his process for dealing with warranty work.  Previously, we just ate the costs and didn't document them religiously.   I spent the time to fix up all of 2022 with some correcting journal entries.
      His CPA firm focuses on auto-shops.  It seems that he is crowd-sourcing his topics by asking for topics or creating topics from frequently asked questions.  There was a podcast on advertising.  How much should you spend?  Is zero enough?  Is 100K monthly enough?   There was another on Tax Tips and common questions, such as "Can I pay for my goomah with business funds?"  (OK, not really, but you get the picture).  Where are the legal boundaries with taxes?  What qualifies and what doesn't?  Is accelerated depreciation best?
      TLDR:  Great podcast.  Not boring, in spite of being accounting.  Auto Shop focused.   I recommend that you listen.

      Talking Points
      Kathleen Long: One of the hardest working women in auto car. A woman of action and impact. She’s a big believer in the value of mentoring. Has a glass-break alarming laugh RepairPal is setting/ limiting what prices I can charge to my customers with their estimator. I don’t need RepairPal because I already have plenty of business and I get great marketing for free through word of mouth. Online customers like the ones that come through RepairPal are just annoying price shoppers. I have a relationship with my local CarMax store, so I don’t need RepairPal’s help. Many consumers haven’t heard of RepairPal so they cannot really help me to increase my car count.  
      Kathleen Bio:
       
      Kathleen Long, Chief Revenue Officer
      Kathleen has built and developed award-winning marketing, sales, success, support and operations teams, centered on principles of authenticity, hard work and empathy. As Chief Revenue Officer at RepairPal, Kathleen leads all partner and consumer initiatives; including business development & strategy, operations, marketing, and IT. Kathleen is absolutely insistent on making a difference for people and businesses, by connecting them with disruptive, useful technologies, aided by humans who are given space to be themselves at work. Kathleen helped transition a startup through a successful acquisition exit, created revenue and monetization streams that supported another startup going public and grew her career from a chair in a call center employee to a seat at the executive table in 10 years (happily mentoring others to do the same). Kathleen is proud to stand for ethical principles, and to be a female executive in a male-dominated industry and is Women in Auto Care's Woman of Excellence, presented annually to a woman who has provided recent outstanding contributions to the auto care industry while demonstrating role model behaviors, leadership and commitment to the advancement of women.  She has been described by some as the literal voice of the company and has a laugh that once set off glass break alarms in a conference room.
      Kathleen holds a degree in General Studies and Philosophy from the University of Nevada, Reno.
