I gotta say, taking credit cards is the best thing I’ve ever done. I pay 2.5% a transaction and that’s IT. Nothing else. My customers double up the order sometimese knowing they are going to swipe it. It didn’t just make me a few extra dollars in sales.. It made thousands of extra dollars in sales. Though there are people out there that are old school, and if change would hurt them, & their routine then I wouldn’t suggest disrupting their flow.
Biker Jim, & Trenton Dog are both of the same cut. They are BOTH street vendors. THey both sell from a cart. It’s mobile food. You are no different, Stop acting like you are, just b/c someone sells something different and NOT the plain jane same.
Thinking outside the box is what gets you noticed, and sometimes works to their benefit and to have every available option to get paid is KEY. I wouldn’t like it too much if a customer walked away b/c they didn’t have enough cash to cover their bill.
Hey Wild Dog – good job opening up old wounds!
Until MobilCuisine dug this one up, it had sat dormant for months. I asked him a question and forgot about the hostilities.
It’s just another old example of everyone piling on good ‘ole TrentonDog. If you actually read the entire thread, you’ll see that I am pretty tolerant of other people’s opinions but some folks love to insult and put down others and do it relentlessly.
“plain jane same” “same O same O” “think small be small”
How about you guys start “thinking outside the box” and think up some original zingers instead of using the same material over and over again.
And no matter what you guys say, Biker Jim and me cannot be compared as far as whether credit cards should be processed. In a simplistic view, yes, we are both street carts. But his average ticket is much more than mine because I just serve the “plain jane same” hot dogs and not expensive wild game sausages with cream cheese shot out of a caulk gun.
I can count on one hand the number of people that asked if we took plastic. I’m not losing a dime because I don’t.
Yep – I’m old school and it would kill me to change my routine. Not one creative bone in my body. Not only am I unable to think outside the box, I have trouble wrapping hot dogs in foil. I do not want to impress my customers with quality variety or uniqueness. Feel free to add more.
