Setting up a merchant account for a boutique or pop-up shop owner


If you are a boutique or pop-up shop owner, then keep reading. This is the season of pop-up shops and boutique sales. Now that the holiday season is here in full swing, having your shop buyer ready is crucial to ensure you have an amazing season of cash flow.  If you are considering having a mobile set up within farmers’ markets, seasonal trade shows, and more, then you might want to consider looking at your current merchant account setup.  Does your current merchant account provide you the flexibility to be on the go frequently?

With the economy going back into full swing and it’s a great thing now that we are headed into the busiest shopping time of the year, you want to ensure that you are set up for success. Now would be a good time more than ever to review your current merchant account.

These are just a handful of things to consider when reviewing your account. Not only do you want to have the ability to allow your shoppers to buy from you where you are, but you also want to make sure that all transactions stay safe and secure if you are setting up shop at various venues.
