Offering Payment Choices Could Mean Incremental Sales For You.
Making sure your customers have an overall positive experience is essential. It also underlines the value of offering all credit card brands, before customers decide to shop or stay with you. Loyal cardholders receive benefits and look to use their preferred card when deciding where to shop or stay: meaning that payment choice is critical in ensuring you capture spend from all customers.
Merchants who accept card that run of the Discover Global Network, for example, can welcome cardholders from around the globe touring Germany. This includes the ability to conduct business with millions of international cardholders from major global issuers like Diners Club International® issued in over 55 countries across Europe and Discover Global Network’s Alliance Partners such as South Korea’s BC Card, India’s RuPay, Brazil’s Elo and Turkey’s Troy.
The Discover Global Network has over 105+ million cardholders2. These cardholders benefit from loyalty programmes so generally place their cards ‘top of wallet’ and actively look to shop or stay where they can use their preferred card.
These cardholders are actively encouraged to look out for acceptance marks when they travel to various countries especially as many won’t be able to speak the local language. These acceptance marks are also displayed on the reverse of their cards, as a reminder. This is the same no matter which card they have on the Discover Global Network.
For example: Troy Global Card from Turkey
In fact a staggering 59% of cardholders look for signage before paying2!
With international arrivals into Germany expected to increase by 14% from 2017 to 20223 – you’ll want to make the most of this opportunity. All major card brands offer signage to let customers know they are welcome at your establishments.
To order signage for free, contact the InterCard Sales team or visit the Discover website.
