Top 5 Credit Card Market Trends Affecting POS Merchants
2-minute read ---
In the last several years, point of sale salespeople have faced increased competition from credit card processors integrating their services with POS software solutions.
As a result, restaurants that are seeking to acquire a point-of-sale solution tend to struggle to make confident decisions because solutions and features beyond basic POS functionality are priced separately or are intertwined with varying credit card processing rates and fees.
No Such Thing as “Free” POS Hardware Aldelo Provides Merchants Freedom from Proprietary POS Solutions

Restaurant owners seeking to acquire a new point-of-sale solution tend to struggle to make confident decisions. This is because solutions and features beyond basic POS functionality are often priced separately or intertwined with varying (and confusing) credit card processing rates and fees. And if this isn’t confusing enough, many POS providers tout “free” POS hardware that is often bundled with the entire solution, making it difficult for merchants to quickly and accurately compare one POS solution to another.
Merchants purchasing a new software solution may believe they are getting a better deal up front when they choose a POS system with “free” POS hardware. But, in the long-run, they tend to pay much more than the fair market value.
Restaurant owners that reconcile their “free” hardware with increased costs often believe they are simply amortizing the cost of the hardware over a period of time at a fair rate. However, the actual cost of “free” hardware often ends up costing the merchant much more, since they are really paying for their hardware through higher credit card rates, monthly POS payments, or feature and service fees. Eventually merchants conclude that there really is no such thing as “free” POS hardware.
Aldelo Referral Partners Stand Out in Major Metro Communities with an All-Inclusive Restaurant Technology Platform
5-minute read ---
Major metropolitan communities are the best – and most challenging – places for restaurant owners. With dense working populations, multicultural communities, families, and schools, successful restaurants serve a loyal customer base with great food, reliable service, and fair prices. These businesses provide quick morning breakfasts, easy lunches to-go, after school snacks, and ready-to-eat dinner options available via dine-in, takeout, delivery, or pick-up to meet the needs of their customer base.
But because of the density of the population and the multitude of small businesses and restaurants, major metro communities are a challenging place for POS resellers to vie for new merchants. Many resellers struggle to define their value proposition in a competitive market, and they find that merchants also struggle to determine how to differentiate one POS solution from another. Providing merchants with a powerful leading-edge POS solution that is sold under a simple and transparent model eliminates confusion and complexity and allows merchants to compare one POS solution quickly and accurately to another.

Choosing the right point of sale solution for your restaurant can be an overwhelming process, especially with the amount of systems and software solutions advertised on the market. When deciding on a solution, there are many pros and cons that restaurant owners must consider. This is often complicated by complex or confusing pricing levels or modules that cannot be easily compared against other solutions on the market. POS rating websites are often owned by POS or merchant processing companies that are not neutral or are influenced by paid advertisers. The nature of these websites is not to educate and inform, but instead generate leads for monetary gain by obtaining restaurant information.

A common misconception among restaurant owners looking to expand their business is that adding enhanced in-store and remote capabilities – such as online ordering, payments, and digital loyalty programs – is only possible through expensive fees paid to their point of sale provider or third-party services. However, many times this is only true for restaurant owners who do not have Aldelo Pay or Aldelo Partner merchant processing services.
Through Aldelo Pay’s ultra-competitive payment processing rates, restaurant owners receive complete access to innovative Aldelo Express Cloud POS restaurant technology platform at no additional cost.

Through Aldelo Express Cloud POS and natively-developed Masa+ digital ordering payments, restaurants customize a full-featured POS ecosystem using customer- and merchant-facing solutions that support in-person and off-premises dining services.
The new Aldelo Express In-App Manual Credit Card Entry feature continues this legacy of customer-centric solutions, features, and services, saving restaurants time and money as they use a single POS device to process orders and digital payments for all order types.
When using In-App Manual Credit Card Entry in-store, rather than accepting physical credit cards via tap, dip, or swipe, staff process credit cards directly through the point-of-sale by tapping “Manual Credit” in the Aldelo Express Cloud POS settlement screen, presenting card options from the customer’s Masa+ Secure Digital Wallet. Customers inform the merchant which credit card they wish to use for the transaction without a physical credit card changing hands. The merchant then selects the chosen credit card, conducts a simple verification with the customer, and processes the transaction.

Restaurants that are seeking to acquire a point-of-sale solution tend to struggle to make confident decisions because solutions and features beyond basic POS functionality are priced separately or are intertwined with varying credit card processing rates and fees. Since the mid-2000’s, credit card processing companies have acquired POS solutions or developed native solutions. It has resulted in proprietary POS solutions that mandate restaurants use a provider’s hardware and/or merchant processing. Restaurants suffer by acquiring POS solutions from companies with core competencies in payments instead of POS, meaning that certain solutions and features are inadequate or come at a cost.
