Just three months after introducing a mobile credit card machine which gave them the ability to process credit cards, Essex Green Shoots Pest Control has seen a ten percent increase in sales.

Since being able to process credit cards, company owner Rodney Baxter has noticed a big improvement in the company’s speed of service, allowing him more time to focus on other areas of the business and interact with his customers.

Rodney explains: “Before we began to process credit cards we were using traditional payment methods such as cash and cheques, which could take up to ten days to process and were hard to keep on top of.

Now, we are paid on the day of service which enables us to pay out for extra equipment we may need. Our customers also prefer card payments as they feel it is more secure and what’s more, it makes the company seem more professional."
