In the United States, the meetings and events industry is continually expanding across all segments and is a driving force that supports almost six million jobs and pumps hundreds of billions of dollars into the nation’s economy. Recent data from the Events Industry Council indicates that this industry currently generates more than $330 billion in direct spending and over $845 billion in business sales annually.
Leading global technology and value-added solutions group Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) is establishing a foothold in this robust market with the launch of a brand new intelligent payment solution created specifically for the events industry.
Unified Payments, a subsidiary of Net Element, now offers a complete solution for event processing that enables merchants to maximize their sales, shorten their ticket lines and enhance the overall customer experience. The company’s unique solutions go into action the instant that ticket sales commence for an event, and the robust package offered by Unified Payments transforms event processing and makes it significantly simpler overall.
Unified Payments’ solution boosts existing acceptance services with intelligent integration for point-of-sale systems, self-order kiosks, chargeback protection and multi-channel payment acceptance. Program options like Fast Pass Funding, same-day funding, Zero Pay and the Complimentary Equipment Placement Program are offered to all events industry merchants throughout North America.
The Zero Pay program enables merchants to collect 100 percent of the sales revenue for their event through a cash payment discount for customers who pay by check, credit or debit card. This program includes free equipment rental, mobile point-of-sale, an optional e-commerce platform, same-day funding, an onsite technician and an analytics platform.
The Standard Plan offered to event merchants allows them to accept payments regardless of where a customer is located or how they are paying. With this plan, merchants can unify all payments and optimize the payment acceptance process. The Standard Plan includes free equipment rental, mobile point-of-sale, self-order kiosks, an optional e-commerce platform, an onsite technician, same-day funding and an analytics platform.
The feature-rich payment acceptance solutions now made available for event managers and merchants through Net Element and Unified Payments have the potential to revolutionize the way event transactions are processed. Additional information can be found at http://cnw.fm/DwjQ8.
