As an Example…
With the Fourth of July looming over us, the perfect example of a seasonal business arises: firework stands. Acumen Connections assists fourteen different firework stand businesses with payment processing every year around Independence Day; most of which have been with us for years, with one new exception.

The reason why these seasonal merchants keep coming back is simple: we’re willing to work with them at their pace to set up the perfect payment processing system for their needs. We understand that they have a small amount of time to accomplish a large amount of detailed responsibilities, so we do our best to ensure they don’t need to doubt their payment processors.

Another reason that makes us ideal for seasonal businesses is the wide array of point of sale systems we offer. No matter the location of your business, we have a service and product for you. If your firework stand (or other style of business) doesn’t have telephone and internet access, we can provide wireless terminals. Have phone drop or internet connection? We offer countertop terminals. Or if you just want to use your smartphone to process transactions, we have you covered with a downloadable app and adjacent card reader.

Just because your business is seasonal or only operates for a brief period out of the year doesn’t mean your service isn’t just as important to us as open-year-round businesses. We would love to establish a trustworthy and convenient, long lasting relationship with you and your business. We’re here for you whenever you need us – if you or someone you know has a seasonal (or not!) business looking for the perfect company to help them get paid, take a look at our application to help us start helping you.
