The lockdown of 2020 proved to be a pivotal moment in retail, especially among small, local suppliers. The fears of having to shut down and the potential for customers to disappear were very real. But retail rose to the challenge. Shops are restaurants moved online, selling their wares through apps, websites and local networks, and it was all made possible by payment gateways.
The interesting news is that most retailers have no intention of stopping what they started back in summer 2020. They’ve seen how providing a delivery service alongside the shop front isn’t just for the big players – it scales down beautifully, and with that local touch and word of mouth, customers love it!
Make the most of…
Personalised payment solutions
But why stop there? Taking online payments is one thing, but you can use your good name to grow your business, all thanks to our dedicated credit and debit cards, as well as pre-paid cards.
We can provide you with personalised credit or debit cards that customers can use anywhere, but which will be emblazoned with your branding for extra exposure.
Another fantastic service we provide is issuing prepaid cards. These are like credit cards, except you pay for the goods ahead of the purchase rather than after it. That means customers have to top it up, but it also means they can’t possibly get into debt with it. As a business, you can issue bespoke cards, which make perfect loyalty rewards or gifts, and although they can be used anywhere, they’ll be branded up for you, making them a fantastic marketing tool.
Trusted Payment Gateways for Customers & Merchants
All things considered, Fido is the perfect card and payment partner for your business, whether you’re a sole trader running a shop or a retail SME with several branches. We make everything simple, from setup to ongoing operation, so all you need to do is focus on your business.
Our payment gateways are fully compliant with PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), so you can be assured that you’re dealing with a company that takes security seriously – indeed, it’s our prime concern. That reflects well on you, of course, and gives you the reassurance to take online and in-person payments with complete peace of mind.
