Why Should Your B2B Business Accept Credit Cards?
Thursday, February 9, 2017
The most compelling reason is that many of your clients prefer doing business that way. This is especially true with smaller and start-up businesses, as they tend to rely heavily on corporate credit cards. Accepting B2B card payments helps connect your business to these customers.
Today online and electronic payments comprise only a fraction of B2B sales. However, that volume is growing — and quickly. Forrester Research reported that 2016 B2B e-commerce sales totaled $885 billion, a $75 billion increase over the previous year. That figure that is expected to increase to $1.13 trillion (with a T) by 2020. There is great potential in the industry and you can start tapping into that revenue NOW by accepting credit card transactions.
And that’s not all….. consider these additional advantages.
