Shop Small. Make a Big Difference. Keep Your Sanity. Have a Happy Black Friday!
Recently we partnered with Toronto CFIB member Patrick McMurray to discuss why Interac Debit is the preferred method of payment at his Toronto pub, The Ceili Cottage.
The #yourchoicematters campaign is a conversation we want to have with Canadians about the impact their payment choices make to the small businesses they love and frequent. Most people do not know, for example, that on a $100 purchase, based on current rates, a merchant pays between $1.50 and $3.00 for the interchange alone on a credit card transaction, but only a flat fee of pennies for an Interac Debit transaction.
Watch Patrick and pub manager Eoghan talk about their own experience:
Are you a small business owner? Is Interac Debit your preferred payment acceptance method? We’re always on the lookout for testimonials to feature on our social channels. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me your story. Let’s keep this conversation going.
